Well, I am pretty chuffed as I sold a mono print at the Art Market in Maidstone to someone I didn’t know. It was great to be able to talk to the buyer about my work and direct her also to my new artist’s statement – sharpened up as a result of my recent tutorial. It seems to be doing the right thing:
“I have read the weblink and I feel even more inspired about your art …”
Last Thursday I took part in the ZAP art tour to the galleries around Bethnal Green – totally exhausting but a good opportunity to see loads of work and make new contacts. Jess Fuller’s work at Herald St Gallery was a witty take on the idea of cast-offs, I thought. I liked her canvas as cloth reference to women’s work and her process is a mixture of forward planning, playful improvisation and knowing reference to artists such as Matisse, Arp and Miro.
