The next few days will be curiously calm; they lay in between the making of the work for Perfume as Practice SS19 at Lumen Crypt Gallery and said exhibition’s installation on Wednesday.
I will chiefly use the time to promote the exhibition and, frankly, I will try to relax and prepare for the exhibition’s opening. Last week was rather frantic and my body feels strained. I want to feel in a positive physical and mental state for the Private View on Thursday as it’s important to communicate Perfume as Practice effectively to an audience.
I am happy with the work I have made. As well as containing 10 perfume portraits the exhibition adheres to the theme of astronomy. Amongst other things, this has allowed me to exercise my painting skills; creating banners of constellations which will also be adorned on perfume bottles; creating a connection between perfume and painting in a manner that aligns both disciplines.
I do hope you all can make it to Perfume as Practice SS19, which runs daily 12-6pm from 4th – 7th April. The Private View is on 4th April from 6.30-8.30pm.
