‘Community’ is a stunning mixed media piece of art by contemporary artist Simon Kirk.
“As I do in my work, I free associated cut up text and images. In this case the idea was to create a ‘community’, which the viewer is invited to ‘explore’. I’m a big fan of haiku and the gentle playfulness that helps us view everyday life with fresh eyes. Across the piece there are texts that help to shape narratives – some parts are more obvious, like the swimmers in the water or the cat in the tree – whereas other parts are more abstract and leave the viewer to draw their own conclusions.” – Simon Kirk
