Elevenses

The possibility of a new studio is simultaneously good and shifting. The landlord and leasing agent (a local housing association) are keen for us to take over the lower ground floor rooms of an old school gymnastics hall – which […]

All in the detail – light

Re-imagining objects collected from recent beach walks I’m transfixed by the translucence of things. Lit from below, I can see through shells. New layers of surface and texture emerge, bringing new landscapes, perhaps the moon? Photographed closely I can see […]

Small things

In time things accumulate. It is not always easy to notice. When dust starts to collect, it is only once it has gathered in swaythes, the sun comes out and casts new light on it, that it gets noticed. Grains […]

Destruction/ Physical Manipulation of Photographs

I am interested in the way in which Gerhard Richter created a vast number of ‘overpainted’ photographs.  These are categorised into groups such as ‘self portraits’ and ‘family’.  Each colour photograph has been overpainted with oil paint, and simply titled […]

Deconstructing Objects

After researching Michael Landy’s Breakdown, primarily for my dissertation, I have become interested in unpicking everyday objects.  I found the processes Landy used to order, catalogue, destroy and document all of his possessions intriguing.  I especially was interested in how he kept […]

forwards and backwards

So while I have been talking with the current leaseholder about taking over the remaining years on their contract, the property owner has been in negotiations with another organisation about an entirely new contract. The potentially brilliant studio is looking […]

Urgency: new studio sought

On Friday I looked around what could easily be a great studio. The place would suit up to about ten individual artists, or perhaps fewer if I/we can pull off a collaboration with ABF (a well established national adult education […]

Storm

  The recent storm took me again to the shore. I fought the wind to walk on the shingle and examine the rejected items along the wrack line. String, rubber glove, plastic bottle, shells, bits of crab, bits of stick, […]

The Moor

Imperceptible shifts

On Tuesday I walked to the sea for the first time in several weeks. Having had a crash in energy levels, my capacity to walk any distance plummeted too. On Tuesday I walked to the sea. It was still there: On […]

Water logged

After a concerted start to write regularly, there has been a long pause. My last post tells me that I was slowing down, attracted to the meandering of the ox bow river at Cuckmere Haven. I remember choosing my words […]

Wardrobe Diaries revisited

I did not have the words when I started this blog. Looking back at it now it feels scant and sporadic, and tells me little of what was happening. The lack of verbal language, reflected here, is perhaps why I […]
