For #Five2Watch this week we've selected five artists whose work reminded us of the winter months and festive season, featuring: Carolyn Burchell, Tim Pugh, Paul Matosic, Bob Budd and Tamsin Morse
Snow on Victoria Street, 2021
People meet and chat in an Edinburgh street thickly covered in snow. Gouache on paper.
"Snow line Spiral", 2015
Temporary mixed media installation created from Bracken fronds and snow, made at Dent, West Cumbria. Stunning visual backdrop compliments the artwork which took 5 hours to create. Medium format photography documents the short lived installation before the onset of milder weather.
Mondrian's Christmas Tree, 2013
Commissioned by Shine On London Road Brighton.
Installed in the window of the sussex Beacon Charity shop. Using reclaimed polystyrene packaging and LED colour change lights (many thanks to Samesky). Initially I was asked to make a Christmas tree but the site and indeed the shop wanted something bigger.
Home for Christmas, 2014
A site specific artwork made for the arts project `Sporen' in the city of Ypres, Belgium, 2014, close to the Menin Gate,
Made in barbed wire, 100 years after the start of the First World War, the artwork represented a traditional Christmas tree decoration, a response to the wish that the war would be over by Christmas, the installation suggesting it was in a bomb crater.
