Postcard from trash

olym1

Local artist Wendy Rolt drew this postcard in 2011 from the View Tube  view looking out at the building of the Olympic Stadium, Stratford, East London. I found this postcard among the trash in Hackney Wick in October 2016. By coincident I had also taken a snap of a similar view in 2011. How strange that among the scattered rubbish I spotted the card.

The postcard was found next to the trash bin marked by the black arrow I have drawn on the snap. The motto here is that not all that is thrown away is gone and forgotten for good…. I have since discovered that the artist Wendy Rolt is still painting and is the founder of  Arch 76.  A charity art project in Bethnal Green. Open to all vulnerable women of any age coping with their trauma through art.  A  peaceful safe haven drop in centre where they can feel happy to make new friends and explore art in any way that is comfortable for them. More info on the artwork of Wendy Rolt can be found on her website  http://www.wendyrolt.co.uk/
