About the "Between the Lines" blog

Our latest exhibition "Between the Lines" reflects our response to the commemoration of the 1914-18 conflict.

This blog will focus on stories behind the work by the E.A.S.T artists as well as looking at other artistic and cultural commemorations around the UK that relate to WWI.

Blood from the Poppy

Artistic and cultural eventsPosted by Janette Mon, August 11, 2014 17:59:00
Visiting a friend in Chelmsford today, I was interested to see there was an art installation relating to WW1 at the local museum. Though small, I found the concept fascinating. The work, on the first floor and called "Blood from the Poppy" was created by a local artist, Nabil Ali, using, I was told, pigment derived from poppy seed. It is part of a larger project "Portrait of an Artist's Garden" which explores medieval painting techniques and organic materials for creating art.

The installation will be at Chelmsford Museum, Moulsham Street, Chelmsford, Essex, CM2 9AQ until 1 September 2014. There is no entry fee to the museum.
