Have put together another artwork...
This one featuring three stunning original 1930s photographs, that I've cut up and repeated etc.
Finally some good news from ArtPix Towers ... a successful boot fair today at Dorchester in Dorset!!
My first fair since February, and I'm glad to say I sold loads of bits and pieces, as the coins were rolling into the ArtPix coffers once again.
There's also a chink of light in the ArtPix Storeroom now, where there's a bit of spare space!!
I'll carry on with the boots for now, as vintage fairs aren't yet really up and running at the mo, so be prepared to grab a bargain at my stalls!
I found this vintage photograph in the fantastic Filmisfine camera shop in Bridport, Dorset.
Dating to the 1930s, I love the bold, sparse white background, and how the person is set low in the frame.
For some reason it reminded me of MAN RAY, the surrealist photographer and painter, and of the incredible abstract and surreal photography of the 30s.
I then decided to convert this pic into a surreal collage, as a dedication to the innovative photographers of that era, with a hint of the rayograph effect that was a speciality of Man Ray ...
Just noticed I hadn't posted anything for a week!!!
So here is another one of my random photos/artworks ...
Taken on a saunter around the Barbican in London a couple of years ago.
I love the Brutalist architecture around there.
Sometimes the area can be seem deserted, giving it a strange sci-fi/futurist/dystopian nightmare vibe to the place.
Plucked from the ArtPix Photo Library is this picture I took a few years ago ...
An extraordinary Victorian child's grave ...
The photo was taken in the atmospheric churchyard next door to the Brontë Parsonage, in the village of Haworth in Yorkshire. Home of course to the legendary Brontë sisters.
The decorative tomb is both charming and oddly disturbing at the same time.
