Red Line art works
I am delighted my drawing Nuclear Fallout features on the Annual Red Line art works awards website. Raising awareness about the big global issues.
As part of my new liminal space series of waterfalls. I have been working on location, a visit to The Cleddon falls, Trellech,Wye Valley and in my new studio ‘Clash Art space’ in Thornbury, South Glos. Drawing locates me in the place, a way of finding things out, making different drawings of colour and composition. Whilst thinking about paintings I want to make, experiencing a sense of place.
Pencil and charcoal drawings on location.
I would like to thank Anna Fairchild for curating Artmasters at The Old Truman Brewery over the weekend. I showed and met with a group of fantastic MA Fine Art graduates from around the country. It was an invaluable experience. Thank you for all of you who attended and bought my work. I hope you enjoyed the vibrant and eclectic mix of artworks.

In the studio
I recommend a visit to the Jerwood Drawing Prize 2014 The Wilson Gallery at Cheltenham Museum & Art Gallery. This is the first time The Wilson Gallery has shown the Jerwood Drawing Prize, it travelled from Jerwood Visual Arts Centre in London. I found it interesting seeing the exhibition shown in a different venue. I think the venue changes how the exhibition is viewed, the space, building, layout and location give a different feel and meaning to the work.
I think the exhibition raises questions about drawing. What is drawing? This is the first time a sound piece has been a winner. I was interested to see a paper cut was selected for the show representing another form of drawing. I noticed there is an element of the unfinished and space in many of the works, part drawing, part painting in oils or watercolour, minimal and the composition often going off the page. The works are ambiguous, alternative even the representational drawings offer something different. The perspective of a pencil drawing looking up a tree and the pencil drawing of an interior turned upside down.
