People react differently when someone they love dies. Some may go into complete shock and disbelief. Others may be emotionally and mentally unstable for a long period of time. It may be beneficial for grieving ones to find a creative outlet for their loss. Expressing yourself through art on the subject of death can be extremely therapeutic and a very good cathartic exercise.

 Artists Rachel Cousins and Carolyn Curtis Magri are bringing an exhibition to UCLAN’S PR1 Gallery which shows the artists' different perceptions of loss and its consequences.

‘Can These Dry Bones Live? will be exhibited from next Monday 29th October - Friday November 9th. It will be viewed daily between the hours of 9am and 6pm.

The exhibition features digital prints, drawings, forensic traces, origami, paintings and sculptural plaster forms. This wide mix of artistic interpretations on the theme of loss and how it affects close family and friends will be a unique collection of work from two talented people who have perfected their craft excellently.

Rachel Cousins is a final year UCLan Fine Art student and Carolyn Curtis Magri has an M.Phil in Fine Art and has worked in her hometown of Manchester and also in Malta, New York and Chicago.
