A day trip yesterday to the Towner Gallery in Eastbourne to see the exhibition: A Green and Pleasant Land that ‘focuses on artists who have shaped our understanding of the British landscape and its relationship to identity, place and time‘. An exhibition that was good in parts, but some of it left me a little bewildered.
Last time we were there I came back with images of the exterior of the gallery’s building – click here to view.
On this occasion it was the building opposite that attracted me. The area was a muddy building site but above the chaos that existed at ground level, this long window stood out. A series of artworks looked out on the world – I’m guessing this must be an art college or school. It is a fascination collage of work. What a treat to find something unexpected like this.

The processing was not easy. I’ve appended – below – the original unedited RAW image. Ghastly, glaring ceiling light fitment, almost dead centre. Tricky to get rid of that – an hour’s work using the clone tool and making a selection of one of the other window sections, copying that selection to a new layer, and moving it into a new position; and a few other issues to be sorted. Worth the effort I think. And it’s when you present yourself with a challenge, and take it on, that you learn the most.
