Hanayashi Exhibition

Hello Sandwiches!

If you remember this post, you'll know I've been in love with Japan's oldest amusement park, Hanayashiki, for a while.

I went back the other day in the rain with Luke and perhaps it was the way the colours seemed to glow in the rain, or the way the spooky rain-induced emptiness made the entire experience even more surreal, but it was even better than I remembered.

I'm working on a series of photos, drawings and paper collage works for my next exhibition at On Reading Gallery in Nagoya.

The exhibition runs from 8th - 20th April, and I'll be hosting a workshop on Saturday 11th. Hope you can come along!

Here are a few pics for you in case you can't make it.

If you have the chance, please enjoy a day at Hanayashiki and soak in all it's retro-ness!
