We’ll start with the competition artwork for Derby’s Friar Gate Square, which I’m guessing has been unsuccessful (I’ve heard nothing either way yet, and it’s been a while)…
The brief was to design a piece of contemporary art inspired by the Enlightenment movement drawing inspiration from Derby’s own Joseph Wright. So after a bit of swatting up on the internet, and armed with glue, acrylic, magazines, print-outs, scissors, pencils and an old bank envelope (it just seemed right!!!), I set to work.
Despite the fact that I doubt I’ve won (you win some, you lose some), this was a nice little challenge, and one that I actually really enjoyed doing.
