Back in September I created a piece of artwork for Wenlock Poetry Festival 2016, which is now making it’s way into various bits of promotional material. The piece is called Wenlock Time, and is a mix of collage, paint and digital layers. I based the image around a photo I took of Much Wenlock’s clocktower, and worked in a map of the town.
Next year’s Wenlock Poetry Festival (22nd-24th April 2016) has a ‘time’ theme, as in April we celebrate 400 years of Shakespeare. As always, the festival will be bringing the best of contemporary poetry to Shropshire, so I wanted to create an image that is fresh and vibrant as well as referencing the roots of poetry.
