UNDER THE ARCHES

UNDER THE ARCHES

This piece was made for a publicly funded project called Picture Stockport, organised by Manchester Histories. The coloured and graffiti’d fabrics were made by my workshop participants in response to looking at a series of drawing and paintings from the Stockport Art Gallery archives. The feet were inspired by a five year old boy who commented about how his Mum had taken him on walks around the area. He was keen to make foot prints and then the adults all wanted to join in! I then assembled the piece using the iconic Stockport Viaduct to join them all together. This work is now in the collection of Manchester Histories.
