National Fairground Archive #NFA20
Since I came back from Japan I have been working on my next project: a series of painting & screenprints commisionned by the National Fairground Archive. The pieces will be part of an exhibition for the NFA’s 20th anniversary at the Western Bank Library early September. It’s been amazing to browse the archive which is a unique collection of material covering all aspects of the culture and history of travelling fairs and entertainment from the 1800’s to the present day.
I’ll be posting more photos of work in progress but here is a first glimpse.
