“Spade Story “.

by timpughartist


“Spade Story “,is a pencil and marker pen gallery drawing created during a residency I undertook at Florence Mine in Egremont, West Cumbria in August 2015.The artwork is a large outline of a iron ore miners spade made on the gallery wall and infilled with hand written text about information concerning the iron ore mine. The drawing took four days to create and it was a time consuming process writing out the text.At the end of the show, the gallery owners removed the board it was drawn on rather than paint over it and is now a permanent document and resource ,residing at the Arts Centre.
