Having spent 18 months at my studio Alta Lyn Barn in Lynton, I have now moved to Ilfracombe and opened a printmaking studio where I run courses and workshops and Open Access. Updates on new courses and workshops and students work will make a regular appearance ... here's a starter www.foliostudio.co.uk
Follow link to the Displaced Collaboration website to see the culmination of six months work by 11 artists: http://dis-placed.com/
Since March 2016 I have been involved in an art collaboration organised by Karen Wicks which included 11 artists throughout the UK. It has been exciting, very motivating and unique, drawing on a different way of seeing and thinking. Watch this space for the final reveal of responses…
In this collaboration each artist chose an inspirational location to select an object from that would capture the ‘essence’ of the chosen place.
This object was posted on to another artist to respond to, along with four words to give a clue to the context, but no other indication of the place from which it had been taken.
Every month for four months this cycle continued, with a total of four artists responding to each object.
the responses of each artist were catalogued and reproduced as postcards which were then returned to the source artist.
the process culminated in each piece of work being #re:placed at the original location; The outcome of replacing the artwork is documented as a video.
With thanks to all of the participating artists who have made this project such an exciting adventure:
