Travel means to take a journey – somewhere away from home and often abroad. Journeys take so many forms – expeditions, trips, tours, excursions, voyages, treks, safaris, pilgrimages, cruises, and sometimes just roaming.
CIRCLE’s summer travel show promises to be a visual delight. No cliche’d mediterranean watercolours painted from villa gardens – instead a contemporary exhibition of new works by our core group, plus some fine pieces from guest artists. In keeping with our location the main body of the show has a coastal vibe with plenty of blue and yellow – sun, sand, surf and glistening turquoise water evoking everyone’s experience of summer holidays.
We have chosen an eclectic mix of work which reveals the strong individualism of each artist – Tracy Emin’s I LOVE YOU beach towel from her Margate installation and Adam Bridgland’s witty cruise badges keep a light touch. Foreign travel: Egypt, Morocco, Australia, China, Croatia and California are seen through artists’ eyes and artist John O’Carroll promises desert road videos to accompany his wide angle landscapes.
In keeping with West Coast tradition TRAVELLING LIGHT includes must-have coffee table books and exclusive postcard editions.
