Rapid Response

Sometimes one just has to go for it. A local artist Trish Flynn was in the right place at the right time to take a cancelation slot in a wonderful space in Margate 'The Pie Factory'. I was invited to be part of an exhibition suitably titled 'Rapid Response' with fourteen other artists. This followed directly after the Deal exhibition. It was interesting to see my work in a very different environment. I was fortunate that the person who had brought one of my series of three prints permitted me to show the print that he had brought. so I could show them in the same sequence of three.

I also submitted three other prints including my kettle print which fitted the title Rapid Response.

Phantastical Dreams

So the prints are finished and the installation has been transported to the gallery. Will add an image of the framed works in situ and also the installation (including sack of potatoes) after the curator has finished and the PV is over. (now added)

Passing Time

The show is up and changes have been made. I am pleased with the orange reflexions created. The subtile reflexions of the studio windows in the last post have been lost.

Sadly the true colour and detail does not come out in the photo.

Passing Time

Passing time is a group exhibition of comrades who worked together on the Access course at UCA Canterbury in 2010. We went on to  graduate with a Fine Art Honours degree at UCA.

I am working on a piece in my studio. It is somewhat site specific and will have to adapt to the lighting and environment of the Gallery where it will be shown.

I might say that the concept of this piece has had to adapt due to peer pressure! The original work was going to be a gold fish in a bowl which was deemed to be too provocative. It has brought up certain issues…

Skin Exhibition

SKIN is an exhibition of art by women artists who have responded to the theme of skin. The entries for this expo were selected by a panel including gallery director David Lilford of Lilford Galleries.
(I will update the photographs later. This gives an idea of my two pieces).
One is responding to ageing and the appearance of skin, also taking into consideration that colour can just be a fa├žade to how a person might perceive themselves.

The other piece is political exploring the power of the written and spoken word and how they can mask and manipulate. The porcelain needles are used as a metaphor. I hope that the viewer will feel free to interpret the works subjectively.
