We were delighted to donate work to a local Mental Health Charity FineNotFine earlier this year after becoming aware of the work they were doing with young people and their projects in negotiation with local schools. Local Artists were asked to work in situ around our local Town using Edvard Munch’s iconic image of The Scream as a reference point, whilst being open and accessible to the public and raising the charities local profile. We produced 2 pieces on the day which became part of an exhibition and silent Auction at St Edmundsbury Cathedral in October. We are delighted that both pieces sold and together with all the funds raised on the night, this excellent charity will be able to further realise the potential of their crucial work.
The body of work generated from this project remained on show in the cloisters at the cathedral for 2 weeks and we were glad to have been invited to do a residency during the exhibition. The architecture there is so extraordinary, we wanted to combine the essence of the structure with entwined hands imbuing a sense of security and support.
