THE MARTINSEY ISLE TRUST'S ART OF DYING 'LOANS' PROJECT
The collection here includes: Sabra's vibrant photographs on the Mexican Day of the Dead; Carla's emotive photographs of South American Cemeteries and funeral art (only a small selection of Carla's work is shown here please see her website [under construction] for more, some of which can be loaned from here); David's designs for stained glass memorial work; and Tony Tree's 'Faith' collection.
These are normally housed with The Martinsey Isle Trust and some displayed in the Resource and Drop in Centre, 'Safe Journey', in Sturminster Newton, Dorset, where the work of other artist is also being collected.
During the past 6 years Sabra and Carla have staged installations for the trust's Art of Dying Project which uses 'the arts' as a less threatening way to introduce talk about death and dying issues. These installations have included several 'Death and Dying Awareness' days in: Somerset on the theme of ('Let's Talk'); Dorset ('Dying Matters'); and 'Day of the Dead' installations (Dorset and Devon, an in Buckinghamshire at Chiltern Woodland Burial Park). An exhibition of photographs and art work by all three artist, was also staged for a period of 18 days in Dorset as part of the Trust's introduction to the 'First Transitus Festival' there. Also displayed have been Sabra's 'Mrs Weaver set piece' and 'Soul Journeys' and Carla's related paintings. The Trust also sells cards illustrating some of this work.
