Eram Garden, Sa'adi tomb and the mosque.

Sorting through piles of old postcards in the loft has given me a chance to continue with the architecture collage I played with using the Indian postcards.  In these images mosque meets paradise garden and religion meets the spiritual, although still not completely secular.  I like the low-fi cut-out and the obvious artifice in the construction.

This is an interesting site of an East Anglian WW2 defence area - Walberswick, where you can view reconstructions of observation posts and defences, most now demolished, as if on a fly through. There are obvious contrasts with the German constructed structures.

Persian Garden Collages and Indian Postcards.

Finished two more paradise garden collages, one after 'The Garden of the Octagon'. Thinking about the postcards found in the St Helier (Jersey) fruit and vegetable market and how they connect to my garden collages. I would like to make the architectural elements such as the garden pleasure pavilions in the islamic gardens more explicit - hence "The Great White Gate " amalgam here.
