A Sidmouth Map
This abstract artwork produced through a 12-layer screen print process presents Sidmouth’s rich and developing art and cultural scene. The colours and shapes with a complex web of interconnected lines creates a beautiful, intriguing image in its own right.
At the start of 2022 Sidmouth School of Art commissioned artist printmaker Emma to explore the diversity of art, conservation and cultural organisations and spaces which make up some of Sidmouth’s cultural life – to celebrate it and inspire future collaborations. Emma’s original screen print artwork was digitalised for display by Sam Eyre.
Over 40 conversations fed into the community research with the information plotted and overlayed with each screen print layer to build a rich cultural community picture.
This was such an exciting and challenging commission. The map isn't exhaustive, I'm sure I've missed things and it will also constantly evolve.
