Anna Burns pop art with umbrella’s

A collaboration between creative director Anna Burns and the photographer Thomas Brown. Through the use of various mediums the pair have curated an exhibition that explores the masculine world of B-Movies and juxtaposed it with the traditional British landscape. Using the themes of said movies – girls, guns and explosives – and twisting it against a very British backdrop these two challenge not only the premise of each subject but also the use of their chosen medias. The duo created a wall of umbrellas displaying elements of the classic B-Movie and located them within three landscapes – one being the forest, then London’s docklands and finally the grounds of Suffolk Manor house.

Simplicity it just makes sense. Add to that a creative think tank of Anna burns and Thomas Brown watch it unfold. The use of mix media to captivate people attention installing umbrellas with strategically placed imagery (80’s pin-up girl) it appeals to some of the male population that parade around with beer glasses but without the tartness’. From the art installation, you can look for hidden agendas or message or perhaps just accept it for its sheer brilliance.
