Surf on Turf by Lottie & Rosie Billington

This is Art!



Lottie & Rosies's Artist

Surf on Turf

We created this collage from materials we found in our uncle's shed and garden. We drew a rough idea onto paper then transferred the idea into three dimensions using the grass as our canvas. The photograph of the finished work was taken from an upstairs window.

What our judges had to say
about Lottie & Rosies's amazing work!

'Lottie and Rosie, I adore your piece. What a brilliant collaboration; making such a fun piece together! I admire how you transferred a drawing on paper into a three dimensional real life sculpture. That you used everyday objects and transformed them into art and that you both perform in the piece too! Your uncle's shed is a treasure trove and hurls are magical! Super congratulations and hope you continue to make more great collaborative works together.'

Amanda Coogan, Visual Artist

'Surf on Turf exudes fun! The excitement and enjoyment of making this stunning artwork is very evident. Congratulations to the artists, Lottie and Rosie on their clever and imaginative use of materials and for creating something so wonderful.'

Tadhg Crowley, Senior Curator at Glucksman Museum

Well, I'm usually into Greek Gods and stuff. And my friend Faye is good at Art, so when we had to do a project we decided to do a bust of Juno, the Roman Queen of the Gods
