Diving into the world of video to experiment with this medium as another means of bringing my work to you.
During a recent photo shoot with local photographer Lance Bellers, with Emmet Ray’s “I’ll See You in My Dreams” playing in the background, we became aware whilst flicking through the gallery on his camera that the images took on a sparkly, jewel-like quality. Aside from being a great way of showing many images in a short space of time, the flickering effect of the fast-paced slideshow seemed to temporarily transport us from that sunny room into a different dimension. Through its connection to the images, the music worked without pretension, hitting just the right rhythm and mood, and prompting jokes that we had stumbled upon a new art form.
As my preparations for this year’s festival draw to a close, and with only days left until I begin the process of hanging my paintings at 2 Knoyle Road, I bring you this sneak peek of my 2017 collection. In addition to the original acrylics on canvas, my range of cards will also be available at the Open House for the duration of the festival.
You can expect more media experimentation in the months to come, but for now please enjoy this first attempt, and I look forward to seeing many of you during at Knoyle Road.
Visited Hastings Museum and Art Gallery to see my two selected painting exhibited as part of the Hastings Open Exhibition – what an interesting Museum, full of beautiful antiquities and also very well set up for social distancing – did have my mask on most of the time but had the place to ourselves!
Very cool picture of ‘Pink With A Different Voice’ in local interior designers beautiful home for a shoot – always exciting to see my work in a new space – very grateful
In the studio, themes develop – sweeping skies – being connected, enveloped by nature, favourite feeling.
just came across this great photograph of a painting bought by a very stylish friend and collector – amazing to see how well it works against the deep background 90x90cm untitled, acrylic on canvas.
In the postponed period of Brighton Artists Open Houses 2020 due to social isolation period there has been a brilliant idea to get local artists to exhibit their paintings in the windows of their own house; here is my contribution, harder than it looked to attain, the large pieces looked very sad indeed but this little framed piece worked nestled in the corner of our front window.
Always interesting to get a different perspective on our work as artists; didn’t feel brave enough to leave it there long, but I am definitely feeling inspired to keep painting and appreciating having a studio at home and a garden to go and commune with nature and get inspired – being in flow with painting is one very good way to forget for a few moments/ minutes about COVID 19; I hope anyone reading this is staying safe and sane in these very strange times.
