Memory in Art
Created with a teeny tiny brush
Annette Pugh uses art to investigate the point at which a photograph becomes more than just a copy. For The Bird House (pictured, right), Birmingham-based Pugh scoured a family's archive for an image that drew her in. "Moments like those in The Bird House are often forgotten, they are fleeting, but given a new audience and life through my works." The Birmingham-based artist uses ink on paper for these sorts of pieces because of the fragility and fluidity of the medium. "They are meticulous, constructed entirely of small marks made with a fine brush." See Pugh's work as part of new exhibition Somewhere Less Travelled, at Reuben Colley Fine Art until March 4.
