About the Gallery

It is important to register that the natural, ongoing rusting process is welcomed and that conventional conservation has no part to play in Rust: The Art Gallery. In the fullness of time all the exibits will end up as small fragments garnered in to a vacuum bag assigned solely for that purpose.

In the light of Rust: The Art Gallery not receiving funding of any description, all of the images in the book are for sale as prints as well as 'original' framed and signed pieces. This is to allow the gallery to remain open.
