Peter Blake’s 3D Circus

Peter Blake has combined his love of the circus with his characteristic collaged crowds in a 3 dimensional format. The works are inspired by Lothar Meggendorfer’s International Circus – a pop-up book first published in 1887.  For his Circus, Blake has put together a central stage collage, which features a line up of unusual people, and an eclectic orchestra sourced from the Artist’s extensive collection of ephemera.  In addition, two weird and wonderful audience collages in which the crowds are being entertained by a circus act sit either side of the central stage. Peter Blake’s 3D Circus was produced and published by Dark Matter Studio in 2013 and the last few in the edition are available through One Church Street Gallery.  Please enquire.
