Thanks to local community dynamo Steve Lightfoot, I can share with readers the film which was projected onto the exterior of St. Anne’s Church, Chasetown, for this year’s Remembrance commemorations on the evening of 11th November 2015.
There has been much praise and discussion of this work on social media; it’s a truly remarkable thing and it’s no surprise that it’s by the same crew that created the film on the subject of the Chase Wakes.
The work commemorates the fallen of the area, and is a sensitive and touching tribute primarily by Peter walker (the artist behind the Scamp Memorial) and David Hill, working under the name Luxmuralis.
Luxmuralis is a collaborative team combining artists from different backgrounds and artistic disciplines – creating works across multiple media and prevention formats. Luxmuralis work with a variety of different clients from Councils to Corporate alongside developing and generating ad hoc and individual works of art.
The primary purpose of Luxmuralis is to take art onto the streets and provide access to visual artwork in public as well as unexpected places.
The teams lead artists are
