New Inn Colours

For an exhibition in Carmarthenshire's tiniest gallery, Oriel Blodau Bach, in New Inn I went colour collecting again and made a poster for the inspired ex-notcieboard come gallery.

It felt like a challenge to find colour in this Carmarthenshire village, on the main road, in January, in the rain and snow. New Inn has many of the elements I love about rural Carmarthenshire villages, a utilitarian aesthetic contrasted by touches of pattern and statement colours to assert some personality in the face of exposure to the elements and the vast landscape. It's also the way that farming and working the land is evidenced by the detritus, tractors, rusted metal, sheds and unfinished projects.These are little snap-shots of New Inn life.
