Lovely to have been invited again to deliver a remote talk on my practice to first year students at the University of Huddersfield. Thoroughly enjoyed discussing my working methods, motivations and all things text!
Returning to Turner Contemporary to have a proper look at the work in situ.
I always find it difficult to take everything in at a preview so it seemed like a good idea to go back and have a look at the exhibits on my final day in Kent. It was lovely to see further interaction with my piece too; people building on the marks produced the night before.
What a wonderful evening at the Turner Contemporary Open! My first preview since Covid lockdowns and although there were many measures still in place (entry to the show was staggered, socially distanced and included masks), you could feel a buzz among attendees… we were able to go to physical shows once more!
It was also fantastic to see the interaction occurring with my piece as I had intended! Apparently the first marks were down to a guide dog’s tail swishing across the surface. This was the catalyst needed for others to step forward, play and contemplate. I can’t wait to see what happens to the piece between now and 20th February next year!
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.
