‘Sleight of Hand’, ACJ exhibition – the brief was ‘all things magical; clever fingers, mystery, mayhem, smoke & mirrors.
My inspiration was Tommy Cooper, in his appearance, personal life, the man behind the façade. I designed one piece on his iconic red fez and the second on his farcical spoon, jar, jar, spoon trick. The two pieces are linked by the colour red, for many reasons.
Sleight of Hand opened, Brewhouse Arts Centre, Burton upon Trent, toured to the the Scottish Gallery, and finished in Plymouth School of Art.
