Lesley Fallais and Jane Revitt are visual artists and designers who sometimes collaborate on large scale Public Art projects. For the pop-up Christmas shop they are creating artworks and objects on a much smaller scale. Andy Pointon who creates original prints and cards joins them for the pop-up shop.
Lesley FallaisOver the last 20 years I've been making permanent, site-specific artworks for public spaces. Mainly on projects linked to Urban Regeneration, Housing Renewal and Healthcare environments. I work with a range of robust architectural materials, creating work with a locally distinct narrative. For the Zeitgeist Pop-up Shop I'm making work inspired by my latest commission for the Rossall Point Marine Observatory in Fleetwood.
After working in the theatre, I now create site-specific artwork for public buildings such as hospitals, schools and libraries. Several commissions have involved creating oversized pieces of furniture with specially designed upholstery fabric featuring large scale handwriting and maps. Continuing this combination of mapping and textiles, I have reduced the scale and created a series of cushions with details of vintage maps printed on linen.
