laura beaumont, ‘The Mystery of Tally Ho Cottage’, 2017, Gallery Different

Laura Beaumont works in series. Each piece is unique but she will work on a series of up to 10 sculptures using the same book title. Each piece has a story which is integral to the piece:
The Five Find-Outers and Dog are Fatty, Larry, Daisy, Pip, Bets and Fatty's Scottie dog, Buster. Fatty's real name is Frederick Algernon Trotteville and, unfortunately for him, his initials fit him to a tee.

This is Enid Blyton’s lesser known mystery series about five children who have adventures.

Buster looked up at the man with the gun. He had a sneaky suspicion that the Finder Outers biggest case was about to go pear shaped. It had been Fatty’s idea to sneak up and peep through the window. He’d said, ‘None of those grotty grown-ups would ever spot them and even if they did they’d just tell them to ‘Clear orf!’

Fatty was an idiot.
