Comments by the Assistant Curator
Trout relates to projection artist, Ross Ashton. In Ashton’s series Birmingham Light Night, he projects Pre-Raphaelite paintings onto old buildings in Birmingham. Ashton was able to show residents forgotten paintings and display them in a new fashion. Trout, although working in paper collage, re-assembles forgotten photographs and exhibits them in a new context.
