Cafes started popping up and now art galleries are joining in the vibrancy and change happening around St Leonards on Sea, which can only be a good thing, since there are so few galleries for St Leonards’ artists to exhibit in. One of the latest ones to open their doors is Solaris run by art digital printer, Alexandra Drawbridge. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went along to see Solaris’ first solo show by photographer Lucinda Wells: In search of the Real: Lucent.

The first pin-up I ever had, aged seven, was a life-size photograph of Cliff Richard wearing what I recall were cream slacks with white slip-on shoes and a loosely fitting t-shirt that appeared to be made out of the same material normally associated with string vests. He was caught in mid-air, with the image set against a lurid tangerine coloured background, suggesting sunshine and fun. It was a publicity picture for Summer Holiday, his 1962 musical, and measured a good six by four, and that’s feet not inches.
