beach collage




I was approached along with 8 other Artists to make a Poster for the Coastal Currents Visual Arts Festival here in East Sussex, I decided that I’d better try and do something different as the company included Jake & Dinos Chapman, Maggi Hambling CBE and Billy Childish! Im not sure if it’s wise to experiment under pressure but I gave it a go. The brief was ‘Promenade’ and the posters will be mainly along the Seafront in East Sussex so I thought I’d try and bring a collage to the sea-front promenade. My idea being the posters will be exactly where the collage was shot. Taking a photo of a cardboard collage on a windy sea-front was a new challenge. I luckily managed to persuade a pro to do the shoot and John Reynolds did a sterling job. The sun kept disappearing behind black clouds, it started to rain, and everything wobbled in the wind, but we managed to get a good final shot by sundown. Brochure, posters and postcards will be circulating in a week or so. I’m definitely going to do some more experiments with situation collage. Any location suggestions most welcome…
