Throughout the year, the Poetry Café presents a lively programme of art exhibitions inspired by poetry and literature.
Above: Our Thames Sunset 2013 by Adam Bridgland. Embroidered patch, edition of 40.
Adam Bridgland rejoices in the mundane, finding inspiration in colouring books, travel guides, scout camp paraphernalia and the British seaside holidays – holiday-making as a fantasy that rarely lives up to expectations. His work is kitsch and humorous, but also poignant, touching on familiar, peculiarly British, sentiments.
His show, 'Fables', at the Poetry Café, London, from 1 December until 1 February, brings together works he has made over the past seven years in collaboration with TAG Fine Arts, Jealous Print Studio, Peacock Visual Arts and Smiths Row. These include some of his first circular ‘patch’ editions from the Royal College of Art and the CIRCA print suite, published by Peacock Visual Arts in summer 2013.
