I was asked to add some work to a pop up exhibition at the new Hub building in Gainsborough Square, Lockleaze, Bristol.
My work was amongst the work of the local art group who meet at The Cameron Centre run by Pam Sacree.
There was a lovely range of work in lots of mediums. There was lots of work done for only a short time up, but well worth it if it gets more people interested in going along and getting creative!
Part of an ongoing project with the Artists book club that I am a member of , we are altering books then handing them back in for someone else to continue altering.
This was a copy of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night , which I thought would look nice with ink liberally splattered, as I was applying it, it made some of these rather pleasing images …
so, progress on the collaborative piece, built up the layers, and now stitching through it all, to help hold bits on and add to the design, but it takes it toll on the old digits hence a bit of tape to help.
I am Working on this very large piece, for my Westonbirt exhibition.
It will be made up of lots of little drawings that I gathered from visitors to westonbirt in a week in April.
I asked them to draw their favourite part of the tree or a part they found interesting.
Now I am going to put them all together hopefully to make a whole tree out of the parts they have drawn.
These are some images of the first stages, I wanted a bit of colour in there so the background will be inked in the shape of a tree, the pics above are some of the details of the ink, which I have been letting do its own thing up to a point, to create interesting marks and layers !
