I got on well in the studio today and completed this imperial-sized in drawing that I had been wanting to do for weeks but not had the space or time till now. Really pleased with it and hope to finish setting up my photographic lights in the next few days so that i can get some good photos of this and other large works on paper.
I’m finalising details of the exhibition I will be having in The White Rooms at 42 Royal Road, Ramsgate 23-25 August 2014 as part of Ramsgate Arts Summer Squall Festival, Preview Evening on Friday 22 August. I will be showing some of my #Collage365 pieces as well as larger works on paper from my Tidelines series and Field drawings.
I’ll also be giving a talk about my work and the interplay between chaos and control, emotion and intellect that drives it. I’ll be telling the story of #Letter365 and introducing the delights of unseen art: #Letter365.
We had hoped that there would be the opportunity for people to create a piece of mailart that would feature in my #Letter365 installation next March in Bridport but due to other commitments our helpers are taking on during the Summer Squall we have had to cancel this.
Today’s #arteachday is a little collage from my messier side
I’m trying to get back to posting an image on Twitter every day with the hashtag #arteachday. This is a little compositional study I did this morning.
It was nice to have a little mention in the review of DAW in the latest issue of Evolver. The article was written by the artist Fiona Robinson who said nice things when she was here. Thank you Fiona. This is the picture they used of me looking a bit gormless next to Outfall 2 with The Blessed and the Meek behind.
I got this tweet in my Twitter timeline today. Feels great to have given some real pleasure to someone’s life and enhanced their home. This is one of the pieces Gabriel and Alan bought:
