A few quick sketches that committed some ideas to paper have recently been influencing the layout and development of three new paper cut-out collages.
Relieved to receive 1st Pfizer BNT vaccine yesterday, but feel a bit off today, as if Covid fatigue has briefly returned to haunt me: c’est la vie. Medicinal compound, most efficacious in every case! Fortunately a day at home today, so a chance to experiment with some collage and Lily The Pink.
Beyond the frame: a developing series of experimental collages expanding around Polaroid instant film images. Drawing upon a diverse range instant photographic materials, including Polachrome/Polapan slide, SX70 and type100 film bases, these mixed-media works seek to expand a view beyond the confines/borders of original instant photographs.
Some new small hand-cut paper collages (approx 10×8 inches in size) developing as part of a ‘Travels in Lockdown’ series. A playful journey through urban landscapes, architecture, shape and form, made during a nationwide lockdown within the security of the artists’ studio.
ECC (East Cliff Creatives) members are holding a group exhibition at Brew in Folkestone. The Coffee shop is a great supporter of local artists and has held many solo and group shows. Although due to Covid restrictions there will not be a public open evening for visitors this time around, please do drop by for a fine coffee during opening hours, view the artworks and support a superb local venue.
The current show runs for 4 weeks through October.
