Beyond, Beyond, Totally Beyond, Perfectly Beyond was a solo show at Solihull Art Gallery from September - November 2011 and was funded by the Arts council England. The projects also ran along side an educational project called Knick Knacks which were a series of workshops that encouraged young people to create characters, stories. We did this by playing a lot of improvisational games and working directly with materials. Three images where selected from the groups collaborative drawings which I then made into to larger than life size sculptures which now reside in the schools.
Beyond Beyond was based on the story below which was inspired by the young peoples work.
Ray Burberry was born as a rubbery shape. His parents wanted to be rubbery too. They stepped inside Professor Rubrick’s rube molecule re-rubberiser and became rapidly rubberised. The downside? They could only move extremely slowly. It’s taken them sixty years to reach their little rubber boy. If you look really closely, really really closely, you can see them move. Just.
