Broomhill Art Hotel and Sculpture Gardens

September 1, 2012 2 comments

Broomhill Sculpture Gardens, located in North Devon is a truly remarkable display of contemporary sculptures. There are over 300 sculptures featured within 10 acres of land so you will certainly find something of interest. This sculpture park is one of the largest permanent collections in the South West and is a fantastic day out for art and sculpture lovers alike.

As well as the sculpture garden there is also the Broomhill Art Hotel, Terra Madre (the award-winning restaurant), the onsite art gallery and a lovely gift shop. Special events run throughout the year, ranging from jolly jazz evenings to anniversary celebrations and exhibitions.

Here is a selection of photographs taken at the sculpture gardens. Enjoy! And if you get the chance, visit this brilliant selection of outdoor artwork.

Berlin photographs

November 11, 2010 1 comment

During my 3D Design a-level (at Chichester college) we went on an educational trip for five days to Berlin, Germany. I instantly fell in love with the capital. It was diverse, different and daring. Here are a few photographs of my stay in Berlin, where I visited a variety of museums, the Sachsenhausen concentration camp and the Libeskind building.

Berlin graffiti

Wall graffiti

Creative and imaginative graffiti

Berlin graffiti can also be found in this country, London. The experience of visiting Berlin was overwhelming and seeing all of the graffiti, architecture and transport gave a very different impression of culture compared to mine (British). I found the artwork in Berlin inspiring and influential (Bauhaus), and used ideas and concepts within my own a-level work.

Next year (2011) I want to visit Berlin again and explore the museums and sites I did not have a chance to visit.
