Ahead of showing his work during Spring Fling and the Sanquhar Arts Festival Dougie Sharpe begins the first of four portraits of Kurt Schwitters on one of the MERZ art-houses sited on the green at ZIPStudio. A collage to celebrate the work of photo-montage artist Hannah Hoch will feature on a second Freedom n126. These lightweight caravans were originally built in Poland in the 1980s for towing by variations of the low-powered Fiat 126.
Dougie was interviewed for the BBC about his paintings on Thursday, ahead of the Spring Fling weekend of 24-26th May. Come along and talk with Dougie about his work, motivations and commissions.
