Picture This

I invited 6 artists to join me in a group exhbition at the Penwith Gallery, St Ives, Cornwall, for around 6 weeks from December 2016 - January 2017.

 

The group was Sovay Berriman / Annie Bungeroth / Alison Corder / Janet McEwan / Caroline Pedler / Emma Saffy Wilson / Gillian Wylde.

 

Our loose theme was summed up a brief statement:

"Bringing together seven Cornwall-based artists working with found material across various artforms, this group exhibition, in the Penwith Gallery studio space, offers a sideways look at the multi-layered landscape we negotiate on a daily basis."

 

For PIcture This I worked with found photographs and offcuts of slate.

All I want is a room with a view

A sight worth seeing, a vision of you

All I want is a room with view, oh-oh

I will give you my finest hour

The one I spent watching you shower

I will give you my finest hour, oh yeah

 

All I want is a photo in my wallet

A small remembrance of something more solid

All I want is a picture of you

 

Picture this, a day in December

Picture this, freezing cold weather

You got clouds on your lids and you'd be on the skids

If it weren't for your job at the garage

If you could only oh-oh

Picture this, a sky full of thunder

Picture this, my telephone number

One and one is what I'm telling you, oh yeah

 

All I want is 20-20 vision

A total portrait with no omissions

All I want is a vision of you, oh-oh

If you can picture this, a day in December

Picture this, freezing cold weather

You got clouds on your lids and you'd be on the skids

If it weren't for your job at the garage

If you could only oh-oh

Picture this, a sky full of thunder

Picture this, my telephone number

One and one is what I'm telling you

Get a pocket computer

Try to do what you used to do yeah
