Not too long until the Open now! You can find out more about the tenth anniversary programme, the groups involved in the selection process and see a bit of what is in store at the exhibition by clicking here. Nice to see “Passage” featured on the news page too!
Nice to get a glimpse of the new show Between the Pages at World of Glass in St Helens. Unfortunately due to the opening times of the space I have been unable to check it out myself but this little clip gives you an idea of what you can see at this unique site. You can catch my work on display until the 3rd September.
Thrilled to hear that my work has been selected for the upcoming group show at the Turner Contemporary Gallery in Margate, Kent. I don’t want to give too much away at present but the site will be perfect for this particular piece’s gallery debut! Watch this space…
I am absolutely delighted to share some real life exhibition news with you all (at long last… not something virtual)!
Involvement in physical shows seems like a distant memory since Covid-19 hit, but the time has arrived for “Between the Pages”. The show was initially due to open in 2020 but because of restrictions, the premises had to close. It has now been rescheduled and will be running from Saturday 10th July until Friday 3rd September. You can find out more about this show and the other three due to open simultaneously at World of Glass here.
Today’s the day! If you fancy escaping the monotony of lockdown restrictions with some creative action, then head over to Threshold’s site over the next couple of days for music, art and performances! It may be distanced but the festival vibe is still very much alive… Catch you there!
Sadly with Covid restrictions still in place, Threshold X (the tenth and final instalment of Threshold Festival) will be another socially distanced / online event. This means the organisers have had to think of an alternative way to share the visual art and performances that had been planned.
I am delighted to reveal that you can tune in, enjoy festival happenings online and explore the rather fancy virtual art gallery from the 9th April until 10th of April by clicking the link provided here!
Honoured to have been asked to give a talk to students at Huddersfield university about my practice and passion for all things text. It was interesting to hear about their projects and share a glimpse of how I plan and produce work in return. Many thanks to Dr Simon Woolham for inviting me along to deliver the lecture via Zoom!
Pleased to announce that I am featured in Escape Art Magazine’s latest online publication (Issue 3), “What Does it Mean to Be Free”. On pages 8 to 19, I discuss material choices, my conceptual approaches (with spotlights on a few pieces in particular) and muse over the idea of freedom, something I feel is incredibly apt given the current lockdown situation we find ourselves in.
Threshold Festival has gone virtual for the weekend!
In light of having to postpone the live event until further notice, they will be hosting an e-festival instead which can be viewed on their site. To see the online display of all involved artist’s works, click here. You can see the dedicated gallery to my piece here too. Fingers crossed that it won’t be too long before we can show in real life again.
Unfortunately due to lockdown restrictions, the final Threshold Festival has had to be postponed until further notice (the main driving factor being social responsibility and a concern for the health and safety of the wider community). The organisers have confirmed that any tickets purchased will be valid for the rescheduled event. Please stay tuned to their site for further information here.
