Ghosts & Shadows
‘Ghosts and Shadows’ was a collaborative installation project, commissioned by The Beetroot Tree Gallery in Derbyshire.
My illustrations were inspired by wordsmith Dave Wood’s poetic response to the gallery’s history - they were realised as a set of sequential visuals and typographic snippets that told a story.
The final installation of images placed in panes of suspended, reclaimed window frames was shown in the actual gallery space - accompanied by readings and atmospheric audio.
Some images were selected for the Association of Illustrators ‘Images 30’ book and exhibition.
