Ithell Colquhoun (1906-1988) was a painter and writer whose works contributed greatly to the British Surrealist movement before and after World War II. Her phantasmagoric landscapes and penetrating portraits hang on the walls of major galleries across the UK. Her work is informed by a profound understanding of animism, the esoteric and the occult. These preoccupations are most observable in her writing, such as Goose of Hermogenes and I Saw Water. Stewart Lee is an award-winning stand up comedian and writer. He was born in 1968. His work includes Jerry Springer: The Opera and the BBC series Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle.
"Colquhoun's time-traveling survey of Cornwall's culture and history brings ghosts and dead landscapes to life all around you." --Stewart Lee
