Artist Jonathan uses his art to share his favourite buildings on his walk to the studio.
This story was made at a workshop for artists in the art+power (www.artandpower.com) artists’ group at Spike Island, with support from Bristol’s Museums, Galleries & Archives.
My name is Jonathan. I’m an artist. I live in Cotham, Bristol. I walk all the way to Spike Island all the time because it gives me good exercise.
I took a photograph of a shop across the road where the bridge is, and I quite like that because it gave me a really good idea of the roof and the window in the middle.
I really like the shape and the roof and the window, and I really like the balcony, and the archway where you can go through out by the river and the trees.
I can see some boats and a tower and some buildings.
I took a photograph of the blue boat where those men make some boats in the workshop.
Across the bridge to the other side, and sometimes I go to the pub. I go to the pub with my friend, I do.
I really like that building because it’s exactly the same as the other one, because they’ve got an archway, but a different one with a clock and the bells up the top.
I go exactly the same way, going to Spike Island and coming home because I didn’t know my way around.
