AN ART exhibition in one of the Isle of Wight's most distinctive and unusual homes takes place over the bank holiday weekend.

Lisa Traxler’s Blast Wall exhibition explores the notion of home and the artist’s relationship to her distinctive home, charting her experience of living within a Second World War radar bunker in St Lawrence.

Head to Old Park Road for the annual exhibition at The Bunker Gallery.

Artist Lisa tours her new sculptures and wall-based works to this unique coastal pop-up gallery space alongside her working studio.

The Bunker Gallery is an experimental project space with an annual selected exhibition within the walls of this decommissioned radar bunker.

The exhibition this year is Blast Wall, Lisa’s solo Arts Council Awarded show, fresh from its London preview at the Foundry Gallery in Chelsea.

Lisa is continually experimenting with the inter-disciplinary nature of contemporary art and is comfortable working in both two and three dimensions, while exploring ways to bring the two together.

Her works are concerned with her connection to her immediate landscape and often incorporate historical references.

Lisa is an award-winning artist and elected Member of the Royal Society of Sculptors and the Royal Watercolour Society.

To celebrate this exhibition, Lisa has created a limited edition mini ‘Ghost’ sculpture, hand-painted in a bespoke box.

Further artworks will be available from the artist’s onsite studio.

The Bunker Gallery will also be hosting a talk between Lisa and fellow artist and writer, Jonathan Parsons, about the background to Blast Wall, on Saturday, September 4, at 5.30pm. It will be a ticketed event with limited spaces.

The exhibition is on August 28 to 30 from 11am to 4pm and selected dates in September. Entrance is free.

Just up the road is Binnel Studios, also holding an exhibition, so people can enjoy both venues.
