Small zine

This new zine/artist book draws together a juxtaposition of figures and abstract shapes under the narrative title ‘The Burden of the Small’. The figure in silhouette explores human scale within certain ‘frames’, while abstract small objects supporting large overbearing blocks allude to the oppressive nature of ‘regime’ states (whether capitalist, communist or fascist). The collages are in some ways suggestive of inequalities in class strata and the precarious balance of society as a whole.

A4 single sheet folded to A6 size booklet with additional insert – printed original paper/digital collage.

Something Fishy

Some experimentation today with a few ideas for the East Cliff Creatives zines project. Fishi-Fishy is a little narrative across 6 sheets; a series of collages working with images of scabbard fish, originally photographed at the Funchal Market Hall, Madeira. The single A4 sheet with double-sided printing can be folded into an A6 sized mini-book format, with an open-out central poster image. #eastcliffcreatives #zines

Dover Art Network

The DOVER ART NETWORK is a virtual walk through eight ideas from seven artists based in Dover.

About the project: “The Dover Art Network is an online exhibition of ideas from artists in Dover commissioned in response to the COVID-19 lockdown.”
“The Dover Art Network resource exists for visitors to explore the work of artists visualised in locations around Dover. It provides artists with an opportunity to explore and develop ideas for sculpture beyond physical limits, to push the boundaries of contextualising art in the public space, and to exhibit collectively across boundaries.”


We encourage everyone to explore the work and ideas of local artists as they respond to our town:
