One is the result of work I have been doing regularily throughout the year during an initiative run by local artists. The title of the show comes from the name of our group DrawingAnd Beyond. We meet up and share skills, ideas and our working practices as well as our problems as artists. We are a small group of friends.
The other exhibition is with my Access 10 group. This group started when we left our access course in 2010. We all came from varied backgrounds. I was the only one that had already had a creative practice; firstly as a ceramic artist and pottter and then as a specialist primary school art teacher.
We first exhibited together in 2011 and you can see the work on one of my first posts on this blog. Beyond Reason is our fourth exhibition together. Our group has expanded and new members have joined us from our BA fine art cohort at UCA.
I am working on prints and collage for the DAB exhibition and the scale of the work is small.
For the Access 10 exhibition I am working on an installation with a fountain in it and also two prints.
Work in progress....
