Hetty Laycock & Manon Dowse

Hetty Laycock & Manon Dowse are the 2019 awardees of Falmouth University’s Graduate Residency at Back Lane West.

Hetty is a sculptor with a strong connection to fibre based craftsmanship; “I find working with textiles a route to manifesting my academic, philosophical and religious investigations into physical representations of notions, such as interconnectivity, the power of unity and the strength that lies within diversity.”

Manon is a painter whose works enquire into the polemics of human relationships. She describes her works as “intuitive explorations that manifest and emerge from my visual sensibilities” and says “I seek to create highly personal visualisations that elicit meaning capable of profoundly touching and resonating with the viewer.”
