This development is properly called Crown Heights, but also wears the moniker “The Costa del Basingstoke“. It is a distinctive landmark in Basingstoke and is particularly striking from the top of the Anvil car park.
This is the second 30 x 30 cm painting in a planned series that I am calling “Disjointed”.
Over the next couple of months we will be in Basingstoke, painting and sketching and talking to people, gathering ideas and material for our first project together as Artikinesis – The Basingstoke Project.
The project will culminate in an exhibition of brand new artworks from all five artists, to be held at the Creation Space gallery of Proteus Theatre, Council Rd, Basingstoke, RG21 3DH.
We all have homes in or links with Basingstoke and Deane, and we look forward to sharing our insights and perceptions of this surprising town.
We’ll keep you posted as we go, but meanwhile, for your diary:
The Basingstoke Project: an active, reactive, artistic response
to the people, places, buildings and character of Basingstoke.
A project to inspire and surprise.
Artikinesis is a recently formed group of artists based around Basingstoke and Deane.
Visit this exhibition of new artworks at Proteus Creation Space.
