A Toast to the Hosts!

This week I am enjoying the hospitality of Adele and Mike Yates, in their wonderful historic home ‘Mallards’. Their son Ben Yates has his

studio there and we have taken over the barn and woodland for a week, with a fabulous art exhibition. We are open every day until Sunday 10th August. Click here for details

There are 5 artists showing their work in total (and I will post about the others later), but today I am going to focus on the magical world of Ben’s Electi-Citie


The Electri-Cites are being displayed in a blacked out room! For good

reason, they all light up with hundreds of LED lights and are made entirely from discarded electrical goods, from bits of old washing machines to

DVD players. These are fascinating micro worlds, complete with tiny people and the dark room is like a big magical disco!

Photocubism it Ben’s other concept. Here he makes 3D

pictures made up of many small square digital photos, to great effect. Keep up with Ben’s wonderful creations
