I’ve spent much of this year burrowing away on a book art commission for 17nineteen a new cultural space in Sunderland.
I have been commissioned to make some scenes of old Sunderland which tell some of the stories of how this church was used.
The first public library in Sunderland was in the church but it was also the first town hall and where meetings would be held.
Here’s some images of the work I’ve been making and the piece will be installed in September 2021.
I'm creating a street scene: depicting shops and landmark buildings that used to be in the East End. I'm also creating an old rope mill, a boys school which were associated with the church and a reimagining of the Town Moor.
Leave me a comment and let me know what you think?
