For Artweeks in May I will be opening up my studio along with many other artists at Ayres House Studios in Wallingford. I will continue working during that week on whatever I happen to be doing, sharing my work as an interdisciplinary arts practitioner, my creative processes and studio paraphernalia.
Some of my paintings have a background influence from growing up on the Isle of Wight exploring coast, plimsoll, plumb and horizon lines. There is a leveling effect to look as far as the eye can see. I think that's why I like walking, pottery or prioritising sound, it centres me in a similar way. My compositions are all processes of 'looking to be still' or 'to distil', whatever medium, form or subject I use, from painting, drawing, pottery, writing, recording or multi sensory installations and collections.
A small selection of studio pieces, limited edition prints and pottery will be available to purchase from my studio, as well as through the Ayres House Studios online gallery www.ayreshousestudios.co.uk/gallery
In the last 6 months I have been working on a clay community arts project called 'please handle with care', working with the public, schools, charities and care homes. I will be displaying and sharing some of the work produced and where this project goes next. There will be resources available for those who want to join in and become part of this project as it grows.
Full and up to date exhibit information will be available at www.ayreshousestudios.co.uk/artweeks-2022 and on our Artweeks venue listing.
