So here we are in 2020, I have big plans for this year…
Firstly: the launch of Sadd artist season 2.
I’m going to stick with the live format this season because it’s easy to film and doesn’t get in the way of me actually making art while I’m filming. I made a few mistakes in the first season but I have a few regular viewers who really like the show (I assume this is the case because they keep watching). The Sadd Artist is an antithesis to the famous Bob Ross’ ‘happy artist’ character. I like the show because I get to show people what I do and how I do it. This is a big thing in art, because the uninitiated ten to find themselves disassociated from the wider creative community for various reasons and it’s nice to create a bridge for that gap. I use humour because it is universal
Secondly: Resolve last years crop
I spent the latter part of 2019 working on Klimt influenced collage paintings. Working like this does take quite a long time as I have to layer paint, texture and washes over photographs… also when things go wrong, I get really disheartened and avoid the studio. With abstract I don’t have this problem because I can rework these issues with more paint, resin and texture.
Thirdly: Start new paintings
Pretty self explanatory
Fourthly: Top secret project
…It’s a secret
Fifthly: Exhibit more and in new locations
Being based in the North of England, this is where I tend to exhibit the most. I’m looking to branch out more and reach a wider audience.
