Well it had to be done, didn’t it – that selfie. Besides which, my hat matched the reflected paintings. Anyway, this is the wonderful work of Jacob Chandler Shropshire Artist and Sculptor, and it’s on show at Jenny Gunning’s gallery, Ironbridge Fine Arts and Framing Limited.
Jenny has recently moved into these new premises, one of the nineteenth century warehouses on the banks of the River Severn in Ironbridge, home of the world’s first cast iron bridge (see previous post). It’s actually on the site of another world wonder, the Merrythought Teddy Bear Factory, the family-run business that since the 1930s has been making the best bears ever. But that story will have to wait.
For now please enjoy Jacob Chandler’s Layers of the Mind complete with passing strange woman in a hat. Also, if you can, visit Jenny’s gallery. Not only does it show the work of local artists, but Jenny and her father, David Gunning are both famous print makers. You can see their latest work there, and buy one of David Gunning’s bespoke printing presses.
This week at Lost in Translation Paula’s Thursday’s Special challenge is reflection.

Love it! Happy Easter 🙂
Happy Easter to you too, and thanks for the comment 🙂
Wonderfully crazy reflections, Tish! I’d love to go and see the exhibition. And Happy Easter 🙂
Wishing you a happy hol. too, Jo.
A selfie with style – agree with Jo, really wonderful and “crazy” reflections in these two photos…. 😀
Nice of you say that, Drake – a selfie with style – I like it 🙂
Reblogged this on Oyia Brown.
A very original and mysterious selfie, and, as a result, memorable.
Ha! Mysterious. I think I will try working that into my real-life persona. It has a bit more edge than Nosy Writer.
What fun! You blend in very well, Tish. 🙂
At my age it is good to ‘blend in’ I find. Soft focus is also good 🙂 Just been looking at your magical heron.
I agree with you. 🙂
I think if Jacob sees that beautiful shot of you Trish, he would want to create another gorgeous sculpture with you in it. Beautiful! 😀 ♥
Oh that is so sweet, Sonel 😀
Love this:). Happy Easter.
To you too, dear Janet.
Well, you have left me speechless my dear Tish. Honored to feature your selfie today 🙂
Yu are so very generous, Paula – hosting my selfie 🙂
It was a privilege for me dear Tish.
STUNNING sculptures ! – absolutely STUNNING ! I love them madly !!!
Now I shall copy you and post about another artist’s work that impresses me to the same degree.
It’s your fault.
Hey, go for it. I love the way we can give each other ideas. There is SO MUCH out there to talk about – I mean positively wonderful things instead of ratbag BIG CORP despoliation stuff. Can’t wait to see what you come with it 🙂
Very shortly …
It makes you part of the artwork. Very cool selfie. Excellent 🙂
Rather inspired by you actually 🙂
Fascinating and fun reflections! And the strange passerby blends into the art work perfectly!
She seems to be making a habit of putting in appearances. I’m wondering where it might lead…
Interesting. Possibly another trip to Ironbridge is required. Do you know how long this exhibition runs for? I looked at the web site but couldn’t find any indication on their (I also think they need a location map as it is not very clear where they are – I mean I know where the Merrythought bear factory is but other people coming to Ironbridge might not.)
I don’t think the exhibition is on for any set time, Jude. And yes a location map. I’ll suggest it when we go to pick up the pic they are framing for us.
Interesting exhibition into which you fit nicely. Happy Easter Tish.
And a happy Easter to you too, Irene.
