Irongate 8..Exhibition 2

Managed a couple of hours on this piece today..and also managed to sell another original and a few prints...Net and chatted with lots of interesting people throughout the day. to me , it makes it all the more worthwhile if I can talk about my work.

Below are two photographs of a work by Nicky Ward..she uses various bits and pieces that she collects on her travels and creates these magnificent collages.Below you can see a landscape with hills reflected in the water..but on closer inspection, the next photo shows zippers,tickets,scraps of material etc...I love it!

So glad your exhibition went off rally well. You look great in the pics.Your staff photograher has managed to do a great job.(Do tell her i said so)
What a fantastic idea to use the bits collected during travels in a collage.Now I know what i am going to do with those London Underground tickets!(Yes I still have them--still have your card too which travels with me in my wallet now) :-)
