A large colourful fabric hanging, featuring words and colours including orange, yellow, green and blue, created by artist partnership Colin Brinkley and Genista Dunham.
Colin Brinkley and Genista Dunham have worked together exploring the geographical matrix of Bury St. Edmunds, which is the first medieval grid maps in England. They live near to each other, so equally share a history of over 40 years. They both recognise the landmarks, as well as the changes, to what used to be described ‘Landscape’ between the river Lark and river Linnet. The two rivers both meet in Bury St. Eds. Most of their work is about the changing mapping of the town, streets, routes, navigation developments, shops and more shops and more bars...they have lots of drawing fun depicting people in town.
Step Up was our inclusive professional development programme for visual artists in Suffolk. Artists worked together in pairs, as equals, to: explore creativity; produce new works of art inspired by each others’ practice; develop new support networks; and benefit from artistic and professional development.
