A Garden of Delights, or The Constant Absurdities of Life, Creek Creative Gallery, Faversham, Kent 2013

 

In 2013 two artists, Jill Holder and Bob Lamoon, collaborated to form a group they call The Stuphists.  Although they will tell you, with a wry grin, that they put “stuff” together to make “Stuph”, the work is often a little more serious and a great deal darker than it appears at first sight.  

 

Subjects drawn from dreams and childhood; the juxtaposition of the ordinary with the not so common; plus the edginess, their pieces demanded a show, and later that year they invited three other likeminded artists to join with them in the show 'A Garden of Delights', an exhibition of the strange and absurd.
