Aspex welcomes back its ‘favourite leisure time artist' for a solo exhibition of charmingly kitsch and humorous, yet equally poignant work. Adam Bridgland embraces the everyday object, finding inspiration in colouring books, travel guides and scout camping paraphernalia. Adam's work rejoices in the mundane and investigates the notion that holiday-making is just another ordinary everyday activity, and a fantasy that rarely lives up to our expectations. Be My Guide Tonight will feature an exciting selection of new work in a wide range of media, including prints, embroidered patches and an enamel plaque alongside sculptures, neon and vinyl wall murals. A specially commissioned, limited edition bag featuring a design by Adam Bridgland, has been produced to coincide with the exhibition and help celebrate aspex's 30th anniversary. The bag will be available to purchase, while stocks last, from the gallery shop.
