One of the very nice things about living right on the coast is that unpretentious people create pop-up art shows in their gardens.
This installation changes through the year. New bits of flotsam and jetsam are found on the beach and added almost on a daily basis. Obviously bits are also removed as I remember a load of disembodied doll’s limbs once featured heavily.
Other art shows are almost like an extended happening. Stones-with-holes-in have been threaded on this shrub for many years. Some of the ones that have been here for ages have now grown lichen and are almost invisible.
This is a slightly more self-conscious effort which uses found objects with bought in art works. The owner of this seaside garden is an artist, a millionaire and used to manage the Pet Shop Boys, Bros and East 17.
I’m always tempted by driftwood and ‘interesting’ stones and rocks. Quite often I give into these temptations, not always with Lo, she is a terrible Goddess’s approval.
In all of these photos I’m standing with my back directly facing the beach and the sea.
