Pre-festival sneak peek

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.

 

 

 

The Drive Home – thoughts from website on inspiration.

The Drive Home

It can begin with simple colour and mark on canvas or paper, seemingly random, but once I start it is as if I am processing so many things – walking home in the rain, looking out of my window, listening to an unexpectedly profound bit of music, recollecting a moment in time or noticing the light/sky change suddenly. Pretty intangible stuff, but weirdly specific at the same time. Music is always on, it seems to help take my mind out of the literal, into the abstract language of paint. I know I have finished something when that conversation stops, and when the words start flooding in for a title, immediately or much later when I am making sense of what I was trying to do.

Pretty much new favourite interior shot !!

This painting ‘Reclaimed’ 50 x 100cm looks amazing against such a powerful orange wall -every aspect of this house connects you to nature, so it’s absolutely beautiful we are open again today 11 till 6 pm and both days next weekend – I am there every day showing with 11 other artists- in my element !
