‘Dan Bass: Work’ opens at The SPACE, St Johns Road & The Kiosk, Bottle Alley, St Leonards lower promenade on Friday 26 September and continues until 2 November 2014. The launch event is at The SPACE on the 26th from 18.30-20.00.

Dan Bass lives & works in Margate, his practice covers photography, film, painting & installations. This new project is informed by his research in Hastings & St Leonards where he learned that the well-known author Robert Noonan had been a resident of the town who adopted the pen name of Robert Tressell (Trestle). This choice of name can be seen as a direct reference to the author’s working life as a painter & director and sign writer.

Bass will install several sculptures made from trestle legs in The SPACE, these will incorporate photographic images which relate to his practice as both an artist and a technician. Other images will be installed at The Kiosk where the viewer has the opportunity to see the work in detail.

‘Dan Bass: Work’ is a PhotoHastings project and is supported by The Hastings and St Leonards Foreshore Charitable Trust & Community First through the Community Development Foundation.
