This exhibition brings together the work of three artists; Angus Fisher, Graeme Chambers and Sue Grose-Hodge, who share a pleasure in drawing the natural world. As its title (taken from a popular 1950s’ television quiz show) suggests, humour and ambiguity played a part in its making. Resembling an old Cabinet of Curiosities – a collection of the strange, the wonderful and the unexplained – these drawings, paintings, prints and photographs reflect diverse interests and different ways of working. The constant challenge of translating the world that surrounds us into something visible and tangible is our obsession.
