felmershamI’m excited that a piece of my artwork will be on display at the Higgins Bedford in their Connections Gallery.

The exhibition, Recording Bedfordshire, is inspired by the Victoria & Albert Museum’s documentary project Recording Britain and runs until June this year as part of a season celebrating the British Landscape.

Landscapes are a departure from the cartoon work that I am most often involved with, but I was keen to participate in this project.  Our landscape is changing rapidly and I think it’s important to maintain an artistic record of the world we live in.  Maps and photographs tell a physical story, but artwork helps demonstrate to future generations what our landscape means to us, not just what it looked like.

It’s great to be a part of this project and I hope that other local communities will be inspired to create and display artistic records of their own.
