Meeting up with Freddie Robins @iamfreddierobins

@kathandcompany Gallery in Twickenham London – one weekend only unfortunately but I managed to catch her – must be 30 years since we last met – and it was as if we’d seen each other the week before.

We were at the same 6th form college in Brighton, and then were amongst the very few art students who went to Hastings College of Art and Technology for our foundation course, both disappointed at first not to go to Brighton, it actually became the most positive and influential accident of fate for us both, a wonderful course, incredible teachers, including legendary Rod Harman, unique life long friendships made and inspirational learnings.

Freddie is now a professor at the Royal College of Art and makes totally thought provoking feminist mixed media pieces that need to be seen in the flesh to be appreciated – I am so honoured to have been able to be in contact again – the gallery is amazing and is hosting 12 artists over 12 weeks bookable online http://www.newartathome.co.uk

Just a little image of ‘Underwater Flow’ to show scale – actual painting acrylic on board is 15 x 15 cm – but box framed it is 22.5 x22.5 cm – details on the website

I’ve found an addictive little creative pursuit of splicing my photographs from daily walks, often in sunset with slices of images from my paintings – really interesting seeing the relationships that are there not always consciously noted. Helping to make sense of the internal and external world and experiences of the current situation here in lockdown May 2020.

Also I made a recording zoom interview last night with my friend Artist Julie Allan interviewing me about my practice, inspiration etc last night, really fun to do, I will do the same for her soon and will edit and release it soon. Watch this space, hope everyone is well.
