Pictures: Artist-in-residence Martin Brockman at The Almonry, Battle

Saturday 7th of October 2017

Martin Brockman as Battle Festival 2017 artist-in-residence, will be showcasing a range of works on paper, woodblock prints, ceramics, and three-dimensional works in wood, at The Almonry throughout October.

As well as an exhibition of existing works including ‘Glutton and the Illusionist’, a woodblock series which illustrates the changes to his community brought about during Thatcher’s Britain, Martin will use the Almonry in Battle as a working space and for a few days each week new works can be seen as they are created, all linked through the objects in the Battle Museum.


Martin is currently developing what he calls ‘An Armada of Hope’, linking our lives to the people that walked our pathways before us. He will be in residence Thursday to Saturday 5 to 21 October, and will be running a woodblock printing workshop on Saturday 14 October, 10am-4pm, £10. Please book a place here.
