Black Country Echoes | Exhibition | Dudley Street, Wolverhampton | September – December 2014

Jonathon Will, Tony Blood, Laura Moseley and Angelika Molek have used the photography and artistic skills developed during the course of their degree to create reponses to the themes of Landscape, People, Art and Industry. Four very different series of images emerges focusing on the post industrial communities and landscapes of the Black Country, to the new and emerging nascent possibilities of the present showing local people making their lives and living in the Black Country, now.

Four different types of work and approaches to the themes are on show. Jon Wills transforms images of industry and individuals in to intriguing montages which merge the people and their place of work; Tony Blood and Angelica Molek use a more traditional documentary approach to show work and living in the region, whilst Laura Moseley’s images are close observations of the interaction of people and the landscape they inhabit. David Shepherd, a previous graduate from the university, has done a fantastic job of co-ordinating the exhibitions.

The graduates work is on display at The School of Art and Design, Wolverhampton in the Bessant Gallery from 1 September to 31 October and is open to the public from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm. You can see the work on a larger scale, bringing art to the masses, in Dudley Street, Wolverhampton from September to December 2014.

Black Country Echoes | Work in Progress | Handicare | 1 July 2014

In association with Wolverhampton Art Gallery, The Arts Council and the University of Wolverhampton I have been asked to produce work celebrating and reflecting on the manufacturing and industrial heritage of the Black Country. The attached images were taken at Handicare in Kingswinford.

“The people of the Black Country have an unrivalled industrial and manufacturing heritage. But it is not a thing of the past – the area continues to be a creative place of re-invention and innovation. Black Country Echoes is a celebration of this amazing tradition – including a programme of working with local people who share our enthusiasm for recording this history. It will culminate in a major festival opening in September 2014.”
