September

I am pleased to announce another screening of my short film ‘The Last of Letchworth’. It will be shown alongside a number of other experimental short films at the very first Video Art Film Club hosted by the Leyden Gallery in London.

Originally exhibited as part of the ‘Alternative Letchworth’ exhibition at the Broadway Gallery in Letchworth, the film is based on the activities of early residents of the Garden City.

Although not currently available online,  more detailed information about the film can be found in this previous post:  ‘The Last of Letchworth’

There will be a screening of my latest film, ‘Panic Attack’ in October. Further details should be posted next month.

Dystopian Vision Returns (In Postcard Form)

Untitled (Grange Shops), Painter, 2017

I have a new digital work on display at the Broadway Gallery in Letchworth as part of “The Garden City Postcard Project” exhibition.

This new work is part digital painting, part photo manipulation of a location in the town  and further explores ideas from an earlier project  – Letchworth – A Dystopian Vision (2014).

The  exhibition consists of a wide variety of postcards from the Garden City Collection alongside new interpretations by artists and writers using the postcard sized format.

Visit the exhibition to find out more which runs from the 22nd September to 5th November 2017.

Alternative Letchworth Past And Present

An exhibition exploring the radical side of the Garden City

After last nights fantastic opening party, (thanks to all who attended!) the Alternative Letchworth exhibition run officially starts Saturday December 3rd, 2016 until Sunday February 19th, 2017.

‘Alternative Letchworth brings together a variety of unique objects from the Garden City Collection including photographs, costumes, texts and other items, alongside new, specially commissioned works by four local artists; Sean Pearce, Richard Seaholme, Chantelle Stephenson and John Vincent. Each have produced works of art interpreting the idea of the alternative Garden City, exploring the links between their own experience and the little known past of their hometown. An essay by local writer Jane Fae accompanies the exhibition.’

Alternative Letchworth Artist Talks

In February, alongside my fellow exhibitors, I will be discussing the background to my work in the show, the short film ‘The Last Of Letchworth’.  It will be a ticketed event and I will send out further details nearer the time.

Dystopian Vision 2….well sort of..

Following on from the successful “Letchworth: A Dystopian Vision” I have created a new short film – “A Beacon In Dystopia”.  The film is again based upon the same idea – an alternative world where climate change has altered the face of the Garden City.

In this video I have further explored some of the technical aspects from the previous film with some VFX experimentation  – warming up for something more ambitious.

It is now available on Vimeo.

A thank you to DAT Fenners Fellows Debbie Bent, Gill Lock, Claude ‘Allweathers’ Clare and Helen Mason who appear in the film.
