Exhibition by artist Lisa Traxler in the Isle of Wight bunker
AN ART exhibition in one of the most distinctive and unusual homes on the Isle of Wight takes place on the Bank Holiday weekend.
Lisa Traxler’s Blast Wall exhibition explores the notion of home and the artist’s relationship to her distinctive home, retracing her experience of living in a WWII radar bunker in Saint-Laurent.
Head to Old Park Road for the annual exhibit at the Bunker Gallery.
Artist Lisa visits her new sculptures and murals in this unique coastal pop-up gallery space alongside her working studio.
The Bunker Gallery is an experimental project space with an annual exhibition selected within the walls of this disused radar bunker.
The Bunker in Saint-Laurent
This year’s exhibit is Blast Wall, Lisa’s Council-awarded solo exhibition, fresh from its London premiere at the Foundry Gallery in Chelsea.
Lisa continually experiments with the interdisciplinary nature of contemporary art and is comfortable working in two and three dimensions, while exploring ways to bring the two together.
His works are concerned with its link with its immediate landscape and often incorporate historical references.
Lisa is an award-winning artist and an elected member of the Royal Society of Sculptors and the Royal Watercolor Society.
To celebrate this exhibition, Lisa created a limited edition mini ‘Ghost’ sculpture, hand painted in a custom box.
Other works of art will be available in the artist’s studio on site.
The Bunker Gallery will also host a conference between Lisa and her fellow artist and writer, Jonathan Parsons, on the context of Blast Wall, on Saturday, September 4 at 5:30 p.m. It will be a paid event with limited places.

The exhibition is from August 28 to 30 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and selected dates in September. Free entry.
Just up the street is Binnel Studios, which also has an exhibition, so people can enjoy both places.
