Exhibition countdown begins

My forthcoming exhibition

I have started the countdown to my forthcoming exhibition, all the prep, which encompasses publicity, putting out posters and sending out invites etc, finishing off work, price lists, and all the tedious stuff I really dislike. If I could just do my work i’d be a happy bunny, alas you just have to grin and bare it.

Final new panel for exhibition

Deep blue

This panel is not quite complete yet, but getting there, it will be my last panel for the Oct exhibition at Lincoln Cathedral. I will finish some 3D pieces, and then finalize framing of various pieces. I have now to design and print posters, flyers and invites, etc . Its not all fun being an artist, the IT work and admin is a real pain. Any offers?

Working towards solo exhibition

Abstracted Landscape

I continue with my Earth Series concept, injecting much more colour into my work. I find that I am working much more intuitively on my landscapes and allowing a subconscious element to participate. The rhythm and flow of the terrain, interacting with the rhythm and flow  as I apply the semi liquid gesso material to the prepared panel, invites a meditative connection between mind and body. During this stage I have to work flat, and it is a physical process of application. Next post I will drop in images of process.

Working at Sams

Wow! what a great experience, and a chance to meet people and talk about my work, art in general, and the gallery. It seems that Sam Scorer Gallery is part of the community, and people have woven Sams into their lives, several people say that visiting Sams is part of their routine. My term at Sams went on longer than expected, as our 1st exhibition fell through due to exhibitors illness. However, theres always a silver lining and I was able to continue for longer.

Great work space
so much space

Artist in Residence

Artist in residency began at Sam Scorer Gallery 13th Jan, its been brilliant working in such a great place, lots of natural light, and  space. I have been working on  panels for an upcoming exhibition in Oct, called “Earth Inspired”. As usual panels in initial stages have to be worked on flat, as I am applying layers of texture in a semi fluid state, and because there is a lot of room, I can work on several panels at the same time.

1st application of texture

Curating an exhibition

Its always brilliant to put up an exhibition, be it your own someone else’s or bringing together a joint  themed exhibition. The very next exhibition I will be putting up, is a “Christmas Bazaar”, for one week only 20th-26th Nov. I cant wait to dress a magical window, that will invite people to come inside and be tempted to buy unusual and unique gifts from a very gifted and select group of makers and artists.

Meanwhile, Autumns treasures are being collected and dipped ready to be fired for more work, including twigs (for a larger nest), acorns, berries, leaves et al. A great time of year, and my studio is brim full of dippings hanging from the roof to dry. Images later.

Ode to Creativity

I have just finished a very successful solo exhibition, it was two years lead up, creating new works, both 2D and 3D, it was an amazing 2 years, taking images and forms from out of my head and imagination, and transforming the nebulous into the concrete, it was sometimes painful sometimes boring and often joyous, hitting ‘the zone’ Ultimately it was my voice speaking in a visual language, hopefully connecting via thoughts and process.

You can see images, and follow my journey via my blog.

Had an amazing evening event with Dan & Julien playing guitar & using electronic interface to produce amazing musical response to the changing earthscapes of my work.
