for anyone curious, some pictures of my work in the current ‘Spring Exhibition’ at the Cork Brick Gallery in Bungay, all taken at the end of the preview evening.
i have nine new works on show (from 2016) together with recent collage artworks from 2015 and some earlier paintings. it’s interesting for myself to see my work together in this way.
clunker collage 2016 [on easel], vase of tulips and an empty wine glass on mantelpiece, farmscape canvas painting [on wall].
it is my intention that the square frames could/should be rotated, although i also like [very much] the miniature easels. the ‘white’ frames are painted a garden shade (for exterior wood) ‘pale jasmine’.
cargo, collage 2016, in ‘white’ box frame
most of these collages are created from recycled card packaging, from sweets to cosmetics: all variously painted, cut-out, folded, layered, incised, rearranged, reconfigured.
tiny arkadia 2016, painted card collage in black frame.
possibly the smallest work in the exhibition at 4cm x 4.5cm [estimated].
there are boat-like ‘ark’ shapes in the construction [thinking about life-rafts and boat-building], and also elements of trashy seaside resorts and funfair facades.
world of interiors 2014 [top] and green garden 2016 [below]
you can see a larger photograph of ‘green garden‘ on the Artworks blog.
medley of very small collages and two canvas paintings, and a vase of tulips.
rustic retreat, 2014 – in a handmade pallet-wood frame.
barn dance 2016, constructed collage, with factory farming [right].
an array of empty relic bowls. i have more. it was a last minute decision to include them in the exhibition. here is a picture of them from the studio in summer 2010:
most of the works in this exhibition are on listed the Cork Brick Gallery website.
