Abbey Road – ‘There and Back Again’ - a used postage stamp collage
This picture is based on the Beatles’ album – Abbey Road. It is composed of approximately 3500 used postage stamps. The stamp colours are not altered and post marks are still visible on close observation giving the stamps provenance. This picture was created on quality deep edge canvas. It is not framed and should not be displayed in direct sunlight although all canvases are varnished twice and have a coat of U.V. protection.
The title actually refers JRR Tolkien’s book, ‘The Hobbit’ which indicates the journey taken by Bilbo Baggins. In this case, the whole journey for the Beatles from the Cavern into posterity symbolised by their journey to the Abbey Road Studios to make their epic LP, returning to face their unknown futures.
