Summer Work: Amyleigh Fowles
15th September 2017
New work from second year Amyleigh Fowles.
“The Rockers series is a body of work aiming to portray the personalities of Rockers. The group in this series are usually known as the ‘Scrumpies Lot’. Scrumpies was one of the few 80’s rock and heavy metal night clubs in Leeds that would bring rockers from across the city together for a night of music, mayhem and madness. The Scrumpies lot would set themselves aside from the generic stereotype that surrounded the perception of a rocker and formed a tight knit community that even today, they call their family.”
“This work was created at an event with live music and lots of alcohol that I organised, where they could meet and relive their days at Scrumpies.”
