LOST NOTTINGHAM

A WORD AND IMAGE PROJECT BY SHAUN BELCHER

I intend to produce a series of poems and illustrations in the manner of Julia Wetz’s Tenements, Towers and Trash project in New York.

See: http://www.juliawertz.com/2017/09/24/trash/

I also inspired by SETH’s glorious work.

The original mechanics cinema now near what now the YMCA building. Corner of Burton Street.

Each illustration will be accompanied by a poem on the building depicted. I may make ten such images if lucky by April 21st-28th when Jermy & Westerman bookshop have kindly said I can display the works with a special opening view on Saturday 21st pm and maybe a reading with other poets on the final Saturday of the festival the 28th depending on NPF timetable clashes etc.

The project is the beginning of a bigger ‘Lost Nottingham’ project that might open up to involve other artists and poets if funding can be found as I do not have the resources or enough years left to cover all of Nottingham.

James Elkins: Artists with PhDs illustrations

0Snakeoil

These are the final dozen illustrations as delivered to James Elkins for his 2nd Edition of Artists with Phds book (Published May 2014). It enabled me to successfully complete my M.A. by registered project for which I received a distinction in January 2014.

My thanks to James Elkins for a ‘revealing’ experience although I maybe now know more than I need to about Fine Art Phds and their academic validity:-)
