I recently conducted workshops in both Dulwich Picture Gallery and The Archer Academy as part of The Big Draw festival. Activities centered around a direct in situ approach using non-traditional materials.
I recently completed a series of workshops with several groups of second year A-level students at City and Islington college. Incorporating the syllabus theme of 'contortion', the task-based activities served as an introduction to 'drawing' with wire and placed and an emphasis on observation and speed.
Work from a weekly art session at The Richmond Fellowship in Colindale that started in January. The focus is on creating group artworks that stimulate discussion and stoke the imagination.
Work from a weekly art session at Mind in Camden that started in November last year. Highlights so far are a swallow/swift? mobile, 'dedicated' paper flowers and Jerry Hall getting busted by the fuzz (in card).
I'm going to spend a fortnight at Stiwdio Maelor on the edge of Snowdonia national park in October. Looking forward to creating work in such a rich setting!
Tweaking with positioning, focus and reflections still required, but hopefully the illusion holds? Why? Purely programmed visual association or is a will to see/believe something at play?
My friend Victor Obiols' selected poems have just been published and my artwork, a wire profile portrait, features on the cover.
