The project was set up following the flooding in the area. As many shops were sadly left empty for a while whilst they put themselves back together, the aim was that artists and shopkeepers were paired together to create a window display to give visitors to the town something to look at rather than empty shops. I was lucky to be paired with Element Jewellery. We created a window display to fit in with the theme of the upcoming jeweller Mirri Damer, who is inspired by the sea.
My papercuts are based on rock pools and flowing seaweed.
A collaboration with artist James Feraciour.
An abstract painter, James had one of his designs printed on to a large piece of Vinyl. I worked with his pattern and cut the work from this by hand. The piece measures 1m2 and was hung at the Divided We Fall exhibition in Leeds.
Some 50x70cm hand cut pieces that were displayed at the Natural Selections exhibition at the Espacio Gallery in London.
