spring exhibition: in pictures

Sunday 10 April 2016

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.

jazz-green-clunker-collage-easel-painting-tulips-cork-brick-gallery-2016

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.

jazz-green-framed-miniature-collage-arkadia-cork-brick-gallery-2016

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.
