Nick Gammons - Castle

Castle in front of the Tower of London

Welcome to the Dwell exhibition and book. For a whole month we will be taking each artist's page and transforming it into a 3 dimensional dwelling. Each one of these small sculptures will be exhibited in public on the London streets

Nick Gammons' Castle
Today we return to the Tower to find Nick Gammon's own castle in front of London's ancient riverside palace.
This is Nick's first time exhibiting with Collect Connect and he has created a classic little sculpture of a Keep and Castle Wall.
Nick is an enthusiastic sports fan and I am sure he is stinging from England's recent poor form in the Cricket World Cup.
Having played for many years alongside Nick for Old Eastcotians Cricket Club I can sympathise with England's recent disastrous games, Nick and I were ourselves party to a few spectacular batting collapses!

Nick's sculpture  reminds me of his love of all things Lego and I am sure he and his family are adept at building castles in plastic brick form as well as in paper.
It is tempting to set Nick's castle up against Melanie's Caer Hecsagon but here at Collect Connect we are much more interested in cooperation and collaboration so we have avoided any potential siege situations between the two.

Don't forget to have a look at the next Collect Connect project, 'The Art of Caring' exhibition at The Rose Theatre in Kingston-upon-Thames. The theme is Caring/Care and it is FREE to enter.
