Of Fireships and Iron #2

The second instalment of Adam’s post about his Battle of Medway Art work.

Adam Newton

With just over a month to go now the pace of work has increased. I’m considering adding a edition of laser engravings on rusted steel panels, so have begun playing with shapes created by my collection of chains in order to restructure images harvested from the Guildhall Museum’s collection of Dutch prints. This is in addition to an abstracted bust constructed from more chains and a handmade iron grappling hook, and an installation of a set of loading chains which may run four metres of the gallery if fully stretched.

For full details of the commemorations of which this bursary is a part, visit http://www.visitmedway.org/battle-of-medway. #Bom350 #OfFireshipsAndIron
