Flower of life..

Wasn’t aware of this geometrical design until today – going to use it as the starting point for 2 new pieces 1 small and one large quadrant piece to work alongside closer.

I have photographed this piece with the inks still wet, this is exactly the effect that I am achieving working with Harwood King using varnish layers on the prints.. it helps to give a real vibrancy to the colour.

Closer

Finished work on the 1 metre square piece Closer, was a challenge working both in a quadrant format and also at that scale in pen ink and of course tea.
Closer illustrates our connection to nature as a two way relationship, our dependency and our appreciation

Sacred Nature

New piece of work exploring our relationship with nature growing organically but constructed around geometrical forms.  Following an accident with a large cup of tea and a plan chest full of drawings!!  Spilling tea on the page is a large part of my work at the moment but this mornings accident very nearly wiped out all of my recent pieces – Transferring to the portfolio now.

New piece from the Harvest

I have just had one of my pieces accepted for an exhibition at the William Morris Gallery this October, it is a piece that was inspired by my background as an embroidery designer so it was opportune that an exhibition should come along that is to feature works inspired by Morris.   It’s great to have some work on show locally,  This (and the current full moon) have spurred me on to creating a new piece, and I like the direction it is heading.

The piece below is inspired / influenced /byVorocchio’s sketch which recently formed part of the excellent exhibition at the British museum.  I visited this show 4 times and loved the energy of the drawings.  This piece in particular struck me as the plaits in the hair reminded me of the wheat sheafs that I was introducing through the work.  I am going to experiment more with the patterns of hair and foliage – they seem to fit naturally into the drawing style I have. With the 100sqft project so busy at the moment it’s good to be drawing again.

Venue for arts trail

I have been fortunate enough to secure the Luna Lounge venue for the Arts trail in Leytonstone which has distinct advantages for the lightbox work I am now producing – Firstly there are 3 or 4 large scale lightboxes already installed on the walls of the Luna Lounge which I can slip work into and secondly the lighting is perfect for seeing through the postcard boxes.  I have now constructed 3 new lightboxes to house the postcard project and am embarking on a series of work exploring the theme of secrecy and the unseen which will use a similar format.    Below are sample images of the three boxes in daylight and with the internal lights switched on to show through the postmarks and wording on the reverse – these boxes are currently for sale at £100.00 each contact art@100sqft.co.uk

Leytonstone Arts Trail

Looking forward to getting involved with this years LAT – particularly with 100sqft but also with the great ‘let’s fill leytonstone with art’ which encourages individuals in the borough to display artwork in their windows.
Sounds like a great idea and a great opportunity to play with the lightbox idea on a large scale!! looking forward to see what people show!
