A contemporary art group based in East Grinstead has been working on objects based on items in the East Grinstead Museum. Harriet Brigdale SGFA is a member of the group and is showing with them until 3 September 2016.
Our images are based on items in the Museum. Some members have drawn medical instruments used by McIndoe during the second world war on faces and hands of heavily burned air crew and pilots.
Another Member choose a simple 1970’s phone and created a three dimensional wire phone.
I choose a very old carpet beater, and drew on a patterned background in pen and ink, I also made a small wire carpet beater and made a patchwork carpet and embroidered the carpet beater on that.
It is an interesting project to be involved in.
