Collaboration - a-n The Artists Information Company
I took part in a collaborative project with other students called Tearing up the Past and this involved taking old coloured images primarily of religious artworks from art magazines and altering them to create a new image. I experimented with […]
If you remember, I’ve been working with Jutta Vollmer at Kölner Graphikwerkstatt. I have come with a second idea in mind. We will draw on both sides of a piece of paper and manipulate, fold or cut the paper to create a […]
Just returned from a week of collaborative exploration in Köln. Kölner Graphikwerkstatt is the most conducive workshop I have ever worked in. On the edge of the city centre, the building is old with three windows across the front and […]
I work in two and three dimensions using drawing as my principal tool for research. To support myself financially, but also because it feeds the practice and keeps me sane I teach on the Foundation at Bath College and at […]
So all of this has been happening… and this… and then I had a tidy up and a re-assessment of the situation and decided just to carry on. Meanwhile, good news arrived! First, my Pink Spread (a case of mistaken […]
Actively seeking collaborators through print workshops across Europe, backed by a-n travel grant.
Out of the two designs Davin and I produced during my research trip to Kansas City one was successful. We developed ‘freedomination’ in response to a brief to produce a billboard design that responds to ideas of freedom, set by […]
Participants Needed! Performance Saturday 23rd September at 3pm. Corner of Spring Bank and Freehold Street. We are looking for as many participants as possible, speaking on a wide range of subjects from the size of chocolate bars to fracking and […]
It is so easy to under-estimate the value of public engagement in R&D – there’s no doubt I’ve been guilty of this myself and have been made to think more deeply about it. In the sort of research I want […]
Since we initiated our collaboration Davin and I have had numerous Skype conversations about the project and the ideas we’d like it to address, but not what we would produce and how we would do it. We have overlapping interests […]
Listening. A conversation. Residency365 is a collaborative partnership with Nicole Zaaroura. Our work took us to France last year, a commission for the gallery Espace36 and the Notre Dame cathedral, St Omer. With a brief of connecting with landscape, place […]
We planned to start our collaboration by exploring the metaphorical space of the garden. Its meaning and its materials. Not defining the outcome, meandering, letting the garden take us to unexpected places. We want to see what, if anything takes […]
I have known Davin and admired his work for a number of years (http://www.davinwatne.com). In 2012 he showed some of my work in ‘Look Attractive’ a group exhibition of international artists at UMKC Gallery in Kansas City. In 2015 he […]
Embarking on a trans-Atlantic collaboration. Research and development trip supported by a bursary from a-n The Artist Information Company.
Doing deceleration symposium at Nottingham Contemporary. We started the day in the project space of Nottingham Contemporary exploring the theme of ‘Doing Deceleration’. This was an event open to the wider public, not just the Summer Lodge. A full list […]

A few weeks ago I had a surprise walk with Jonathan Skinner, professor of eco poetry at Warwick University. Jonathan also happens to be a friend of Cecilia Vicuña’s which is another project I am working on #ThreadandWord. Jonathan took […]
As I think about the Edinburgh walk I am reflecting on this line from Larry Eigner: “a poem can be like walking down a street and noticing things, extending itself without obscurity or too much effort” Larry Eigner’s writing made […]
