The Art of the Circus

Yesterday we met friends in Bristol and went to the RWA to see the exhibition, Sequins and Sawdust. 

Our friend had a painting in the show.

There was a wonderful range of artwork to see, much under reduced lighting for means of conservation and not therefore possible to photograph.

The photos that I did take are wobbly because I was trying to avoid reflections in the glass. The paintings mostly displayed the 'sequin' aspect of the circus, the skills and showmanship. When it came to the photos of Peter Lavery - WOW. There were sequins, but  far more noticeable was the 'sawdust'.
His photos are taken with this enormous camera.

It's quite a show!
