Norfolk and Norwich Open Studios 19

Birdsong

Dear Friends,

You are warmly invited to my Open Studios in Wells, as part of the Norfolk and Norwich Open Studios Scheme. Through Graphite and Dry point etching my work communicates a sensory atmosphere of a transient moment that now lingers as a memory.

I will be open 10am-5pm;

25th, 26th and 27th May
1st, 2nd, 8th and 9th June

3 other Artists are also exhibiting in Wells and we are hosting an Art Trail, so I encourage you to come for the day and experience the diversity of painting, printmaking and textiles in the beautiful setting of Wells.

When you visit my studio and sign up to my mailing list, you will be entered into a prize draw to win an original drawing at the end of Open Studios

Spanish study trip with Artpocket

 

Feeling into the unknown is a common sensation for an Artist. Communicating a felt expression for something that cant be put into words. When I travel abroad, to a new or unfamiliar place, this feeling of something unknown that I so often explore in my work is suddenly all around me; new places, smells, sounds. It feeds me with a rich, creative, revitalising energy.

I went to Salamanca and Madrid in April with the Artpocket community. One of the Museums we visted was the DA2 Salamancan Museum of Modern Art. I was struck by the work of Daniel Verbis – Memoria 90Y2. Circles, all connecting with different sized gaps. Nails with linking strings, showing the mapping of Memory. It has helped me to reflect on my own relationship with memory. The gaps between the present and the past.

I’m currently making drawings on parchment paper using images from family photographs and placing the paper in the window from the room the photograph was taken. When the sunlight shrines through, it feels a movement passes between past and present, illuminating the time gap and bringing the figures to life.
