Sightlines  
  Kate Mellor worked with Chris Broughton at Enville Hall in Staffordshire where they were artists-in residence in 2002 as part of the Staffordshire Public Arts project - Hidden Gardens. Chris is a well-known illustrator who contributes regularly to The New Arcadians publication of historic garden design research.
 
Explorations around William Shenstone's historic garden and researches in the Enville Hall archives resulted in work which contemplated interventions in the landscape and compared differing strategies of seeing landscape. Sightlines and panoramas, bird's eye perspectives, viewpoints and vantage points, dazzling light and "umbrageous gloom" all contribute to their images of the past, the current and the imagined.
