Paul Rogers – ICONIC
19 September 2017 – 25 November 2017
ICONIC is a collection of photographic images illustrating ‘ice cream point-of-sale models’ in a variety of different settings and circumstances. Although having been made in a range of locations most, if not all, of the cones carry the same message, which is to promote the sale of ice cream, with all the pleasure and enjoyment that this entails. As the cones become an enduring artefact of British cultural identity – icons – we thought it appropriate to exhibit the work in a now permanent, example of British iconicity, the red telephone box. Paul Rogers has exhibited previously in the Gallery on the Green with ‘Life Line’, in the summer of 2013, and in joining Roger Taylor with a project in the spring of 2015 entitled ‘Click’ .
