a piece of paper never forgets a fold
a dream can come true or be fixed if broken
an image can be destined to a short, narrow, disposable life
like Sun-Rays bursting through clouds in bright gloom-chasing beams
or it can be given a new reality, by a Collagiste
who rescues it and includes it in their Paper Dreams

East Street Arts are Celebrating the last Exhibition to be held in The Show Space by Collaborating with Collagistes Collective, a new Arts Collective and ESA Members Madia and Jonny
The Works that you will be addressing at Paper Dreams attend the subtlety and intimate struggle of establishing Self Identity as Invitation, not Threat.
Collagistes see the way the unintended Junkyard of Disposable Imagery can be Beautiful if utilised, their eternal values Unearthed, related to Humanity, Society, Themselves!
They can make literal and imaginary leaps…make new pictorial creatures, places, people,concepts, beget new ideas.
We hope You will make the time to be there.
