As you may have read on here, I entered three works into the Summer Open in Narberth in South Wales. The exhibition runs from the 5th to the 27th July so if you are in the area please go and support the artists at the Queens Hall Gallery. On the 22nd July, the works entered into the exhibition will be auctioned off. If you cannot attend the gallery please find details on how to bid and full list of works in this illustrated catalogue. Thank you
I have work being shown at the Scribble Project Exhibition in Melbourne, so excited and a big thanks to Lisa Currie for making this possible! If you are in that area please go and check it out. Ive seen the work of the other artists participating and its going to be a good one! Enjoy x
P.S I will be adding some new work in the next few weeks so keep a look out. ;)
I WANT TO HAVE A JOB
I feel I need to try another aspect of creativity to get me back motivated about my own work again.
Weekends are when I at least have the excuse of it being the weekend to be lazy
I love art but can’t seem to find me own style.
My brain is like a murky pond, it needs to be drained.
Where to begin…?
I feel guilty about having other interests
I want to be stretched both physically and mentally
I imagine my life in 5 years but nothing has changed
Back to motivation
I want my enjoyment to be my career
I need to move
I like everyday people who inspire me.
I am in awe of those that do.
Ta-da…these are now available to buy in the Welsh Rare-bits Co. Shop. Click on the screen cap above to go to the shop.
My next project involves a badger skull that my sister brought up from the woods. I thought she was bringing me something nice, she walked in carrying a Marks&Spencers bag so obviously I thought it was food. You can imagine my suprese!!
My ‘All The Things I don’t Own’ piece is now available in my store. This is a delicate piece so I’m thinking of only doing about five, including this one. I shall also be adding my kitchen utensils piece to the shop this week. As I have already mentioned, this is an extremely delicate piece so the only way really of displaying it was in a box frame. There is a lot of box frame art to be had right now, some of which is mass produced with laser cutting machines. My work is not done like this, it is all hand cut with a scalpel and there is much though and feeling which goes into the work. So please bear that in mind. If you click on the screenshot that should take you to my store, if that doesn’t work click here.
I’m hoping to continue this project and make a whole loads of paper kitchen utensils. These are just the few that I managed to do today. Frying pans are hard work, as are ladles. Those are little bastards to make! The main theme of this subject that I have been covering is how we define ‘home’. I have broken it down though and obviously at the moment I’m tackling the kitchens. I’ve realised that kitchens are funny places as they seem to have become the social room these days. It’s sometimes the first room a person will see and i’m quite intrigued with how people keep their kitchens. Is it a designer kitchen? do you have all your cooking stuff on display? is it a basic kitchen? Bet you’re fed up with saying the word kitchen now so i’ll wrap up. Its just something that i’ve been looking into as a starter for some new work. I’m quite pleased with everything so far but can’t wait to add more. x
