(This photograph was taken during my commission by Aidan Moesby for the Thresholds Online Exhibition at MIMA, but doesn’t form part of the final selection for my photographic series Safe as Houses.) How does it feel to be an […]
art practice - a-n The Artists Information Company
This has been such a useful experience for both my own artistic development & that of the other socially distanced artists, in this temporary gallery space. Through chatting across the gallery floor, or talking outside the Phoenix gallery building, we […]
Having cleared the 5mX5m floor space, I’ve made room for the 9m wire mesh roll to dictate what happens next. It’s a combination of careful balancing & weighing the inherent tension within the wire mesh coil & unfurling it into […]
The light and airy feeling of the empty gallery space is conducive to creating temporary sculptures. I document the multiple versions I make with quick photos. The transience & processes of making the sculptures are the art for me, rather […]
Engaging with the unfamiliar space. Creating in the unfamiliar space. Noticing the different lighting system & the shadows it creates. Noticing the different traffic sounds from my home studio. Hearing strangers chatting in other studio spaces. Variety of people passing […]
Using the temporary space alters my practice as I interact with the unfamiliar studio. I’ve discovered existing holes in the walls and used them as supports to suspend objects. The resulting cast shadows have taken my work in directions I […]
Reflections on my changing art practices in a temporary working space

Documents for professional development
I have become a nomadic artist in the sense that I am now studio-less, it feels very strange. I am sure I will miss the community of artists as well as that space to work in. It is going to […]
With a practice that blends her work activities as a gardener with a constant ebb of creative exploration, Cornwall-based artist Georgia Gendall uses Instagram to document the bridge between art, its locality, purpose, and the authorship of making. Richard Taylor finds out more.
With the Aspects of Interdisciplinarityconference coming up at the University of Wolverhampton (October 8th), I have been thinking about how artists use ideas. It is not simply a borrowing, it is more a deep excavation – in all directions. Generally, […]
Meanderings through art and philosophy, practice and research interwoven
Studio-Intensive 11 A time of consolidation and deep thinking whilst simultaneously planning Tenuto, a collaborative performance event with Ed McKeon who presents Tacet at Birmingham School of Art. I don’t normally ask people to participate in my work and I feel […]
recently my posting here has been around myself and my life – a sign of how i’ve been distracted away from my artistic concerns. there has been thinking about it going on and experience shows that thinking alone leaves me with nothing to […]
I’ve LOST my new studio but am still painting.
This last week at Stiwdio Maelor will from a basis of collecting further surface castings in Corris; these will form a series of development and research for a new body of work. Since beginning this residency my work has developed […]
Sketching and drawing has always been a bit of a challenge for me, I’ve never quite felt liberated enough to just draw for the sake of drawing, and like other creatives I know I’ve never really used drawing to flesh […]
I don’t know if it’s just the time of year but I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about the direction of my practice and how my concerns have both evolved and clarified into some conceptual ideas that will impact on my ways of working.
Somewhere to talk about being an ND person, a professional artist and project lead.
Have decided to abandon this. It was meant to be part of my final MA project but somehow didn’t fit into my Learning Agreement. Have been really struggling with writing this document but having discovered a very useful book – […]
