An iconic rural scene becomes a protest site for the bitter yet comic vision of prolific amateur animator Derek Phillips
Animation & Artists Moving Image 1970 4 mins
The Hay Wain? No, it’s the last straw! For Derek Phillips animation was the perfect medium to express his take on the world. Full of opinions on art, society, politics, science and the environment he crafted over 40 animated aphorisms in his home studio in a decade. Here Constable’s iconic rural scene is a perfect backdrop to poke a finger at the commercial colonisation of modern life.
