Loose Ends, 2019 by Shelley Morrow
Patchwork banner with hand printed prison arrows, made 2018 for the celebration of 100 years when some women were allowed to vote in the UK for the first time. It is still an offence in the United Kingdom to reproduce the broad arrow without authority (in the same way as it is an offence to reproduce hallmarks). Section 4 of the Public Stores Act 1875 makes it illegal to use the "broad arrow" on any goods without permission.
Basket Cases, 2019 by Danny Manning
A series of Baskets created for 'Resilience' an Exhibition at DC1 Gallery, Eastbourne 20019 exploring mental health and well being. The series entitled 'Basket Cases' explores the stigma surrounding basket making as a back of the classroom activity often given to patients in institutions as a form of occupational therapy in the past. The repetitive calming process of making and sequence counting to form a weaved or coiled object is now more recognized by health professionals as a means to improve mental wellbeing.
