Leigh Art Trail 2019

Come along and visit me at venue 19 (Puddle & Goose) on this years Leigh Art Trail. Sat 8th - Sat 15th June 2019.

The Leigh Art Trail gives me a break from creating posters and provides an opportunity to experiment and exhibit alternative works. This year I am continuing from my previous themes exploring my own quirky interpretation of the Leigh Cockle Sheds and rusty Leigh cockle boats.

Neil Fendell - Leigh Art Trail 2019

For this year’s Art Trail I have painted directly onto raw steel sheets leaving areas of the metal exposed and allowing it to rust. The rusting, when it gets going, can be very quick to take hold, and over the course of a week or so I have watched the images change and grow. The metal and rust adds an incredible texture to the paintings and has played an important part in shaping the final image. Although I have fixed the rust at this point, I love the idea that slowly, over time, they will continue to evolve and change long into the future.

Rusty Boats of Leigh

My love of textures (in particular rust) and my quirky illustration style have combined in this unique art project 'Rusty Boats of Leigh'. I have produced two very limited edition illustrations printed onto steel sheets.  Size of metal sheet - 1m x 60cm.  I have deliberately left gaps in the print to allow the metal to show through, and rust to form, such as on the sides of the boats...
