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.
Delivered this painting to one of my best and most long standing and beloved friends (and patrons) yesterday @popkit Kate Helmer ; ‘Before India’ was her favourite when it showed at 2 Knoyle Road , @fivewaysartistsgroup trail ; it has since been exhibited in Cornwall and found its way back to me , I painted it in anticipation of an amazing trip to Mumbai and Goa visiting my daughter ; the colours and smells and fauna have never stopped inspiring me , very happy it’s going to reside with her and her kin in her beautiful home from now on ,I’ve got some perspective now , rather like it !
