The tremendous neon fails tonight

May 12, 2008

While in Brighton, we went and had a look at a couple of the Artists Open Houses. Basically, during May you can pop into various homes belonging to artists or their friends, and look at their art, as well as having a good old snoop at their interior decorating. It’s very Brighton and rather nice.

After much deliberating in someone’s front room, we eventually bought the Nigel Peake work shown here. (Picture by Steven, hand model yours truly.)

It’s got lots of interesting words in it, like “The alien and dog know best” and “The tremendous neon fails tonight” (though it’s actually hard to tell which words go with which, so I might be picking out phrases more exotic than originally intended). And the words make interesting shapes and textures too.

We like.
