Yes an opportunity to show the work that I have undertaken over the last 15 months learning printing processes @sandraporterstudio. It’s been a rewarding and sometimes step learning curve with enriching results.
some examples of my work both in the poster below and following
Some months ago I was cleaning the inside of my car, not a frequent occupation, and emptied the passenger side pocket and found a zinc printing plate I had last used on Art Foundation 4 years ago Birmingham City University, previously based at the wonderful Bournville. This discovery led forward and in a way backwards to a whole new area of drawing and therefore printing work at Sandra Porter’s studio http://www.sandraporter.com/ to transform the work I did previously from drawings of folks clearing the River Brue at Bruton last summer. Since I’d just completed that set the timing was both serendipitous and inspiring
So what now with plans for a solo exhibition at http://www.bluecedarprintworks.co.uk/ in Glastonbury, from, wait for it Friday September 13th! into mid October. I’m planning for the show mainly to be of print, with a couple of humorous and quirky drawings called chicken and the 2nd renamed by a friend’s granddaughter ‘the duck going down the river’.
It is a number of months since I last posted on my blog. So much has happened during that time, I have been working on a whole new area work, print and other new possibilities are opening up. Print has been in the forefront of discovery at Sandra Porter’s print studio, being taught by Sandra and working and learning with my other supportive and creative colleagues. Such excitement and positivity. My fascination that I’ve been creating over the past weeks, static prints from speed drawings of folks clearing a river chocked with weeds. One arena of growing confidence has I am sure impacted on other work too, as I work through possibilities for 2019, including association with community gallery 44AD in Bath.
Further life drawing opportunities locally of a pregnant model, have followed on from learning on a weekend course with Jake Spicer(Brighton Draw) at West Dean college and I’m looking into a further short course to further enhance my drawing skills.
