Fruitful Harmony, an abstract photographic collage exploring cultures in South London. Exhibited at Peckham Space art gallery. Read the full feature by Peppergrain Media. I also photographed the chubby tabby always hanging out by the bus stop but he didn’t make it into the final piece, which ended up being an underwater seascape.

Holistic isn’t often used in describing paintings but Clive Hagon’s latest work is precisely that. Not dissimilar to customary spiritual paintings, this series of work posses a cloud like almost airbrush-spray look. The blend of vibrant colours in sweeping movements are indeed peaceful and resonant.
Based in the Boscombe area of Bournemouth, the vibrant art community has embraced Clive’s work with three exhibitions currently on this month. The most momentous of these, is the current show at The Moontree Gallery, entitled The end of the Modern and the dawn of the Holistic.
Clive tells me explicitly that the work is not an attack on Modernism but simply seeks to bring elements of spiritual meaning and enriching purpose into appreciation of historical art.
Holistic art in its nature, connects with and enhances the experience of its audience. Where modern art is concerned with referring to the processes of its creation, holistic art seeks a meaningful relationship with the viewer.
The challenge of this medium in an advanced industrial society is the visual satiation of the consumer, who is bombarded with thousands of image forms on a daily basis. He very quickly learns to briefly glance at images, only registering its iconic and aesthetic element.
The purpose of holistic art is to attract the viewer in the first instance but most importantly, create a unique experience by striking an emotional chord.
Having seen the paintings both digitally and physically, I can tell you that the experience is not one that can be achieved digitally. The very medium of a computer screen kind of defeats its core purpose.

Spotted the odd white lion in town here and there and wondering what they’re about? They are blank canvases for the Pride in Bournemouth public installation to run for twelve weeks in the summer of 2011.
Pride in Bournemouth is a mass public appeal event run by Wild in Art. The installations will provide a trail through the town from the beach and town centre and out into Bournemouth’s neighborhoods, encouraging people to discover, or re-discover their community.
The Lion sculptures will showcase the creativity of Bournemouth; its heritage, architecture, regeneration and art scene. The Lion sculptures will be designed and created by regional and local professional artists, community groups and schools. It will animate Bournemouth’s streets, parks and open spaces creating a memorable landscape.
Pride in Bournemouth is about partnerships and aims to bring together the business and creative sectors with local communities to celebrate both the character of the town and its cultural identity.
The trail will attract thousands of people and encourage residents to be ‘tourists in their own town’ – highlighting gems of the town, perhaps unseen by visitors and residents, as well as areas of development and regeneration.
Pride will enable significant fund raising opportunities with each Lion being sold at a charity auction following the event, with 75% of the net proceeds being donated to the Born Free Foundation and Julia’s House.
Pride will positively contribute to the economic, cultural and social life of the town; will engender civic pride, stimulate the local economy and create a twelve-week fun event for all.
Keen locals can visit the Lion’s Den at the Richmond Gardens centre to see the lions being brought to life. A shortlist of the top 100 designs is also on display in the gallery. Visit the Pride in Bournemouth website for more information.
