06 - REDESIGNING PROJECT - DAVE EDWARDS - MIXED MEDIA - 1995 by 


As you can see from the title, I did this 14 years ago. They were renovating old houses in Blyth, where I live, so I took a photo and cut it to remove the road and then pasted the photo onto paper and drew around it. Not sure if the experiment worked, but it was fun. It’s A4 by the way.

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    I agree…it is brilliant! Dave..you are A1 !

  • A1? … are you saying I am flat, smooth and rectangular :) Only teasing … I know what A1 means :)

    Kind of you to say so, but believe me, until today, no-one outside my family had seen any of these collages. I have anotehr dozen I might upload over the next few days. I did them over ten years ago, but wasn’t sure if they would be recognised as art. Since then, I have seen examples of collage by famous artists. I also like the concept of incorporating collage into mixed media. I am 59 next week and recently, after decades of using mainly pen and ink, I have been starting to try acrylics, etc. I am as excited as a little child about the possibilities in art for self-expression. I think as we get older (I’m not saying you are getting older … women stop getting older when they reach forty … every man knows that) we become more confident in what we do and less caring of what others think. I still get my feelings hurt if someone badmouths a picture of mine, but I bounce back :)

    This is so interesting Dave. Would have been fun to do and I like it very much! You is a very creative fella!

  • In this casde, it’s weird to be complimented on something I did over ten years ago and hid away. If I’d thought they were any good I could have been producing them for the last ten years :) Still … I have a dozen more to upload and may even do some new ones one day … thanks for your encouragement; always appreciated, believe me.
