Happenstance by Russell Mills
An exhibition staged as part of Brantwood’s celebrations of John Ruskin’s bicentenary, Happenstance is informed and inspired by ideas of chaos and order, control and surrender. Mills’ works mirror and explore many of Ruskin’s ideas about nature: as matter, as force, as school, as metaphor for transformation, and as being profoundly political and economic.
