Artists need to create art!
It’s a no brainer really, but sometimes, in order to move forward, the creation part of art takes a back seat. With everything that’s been happening this past fortnight I’ve had little time (or space) to create new work…
I find my life goes like that. I have periods where I’ve time to create and others where I need to frame, deliver, install and meet people and the creating gets squeezed out. So, what’s my excuse this time?
I’ve moved into my new studio
– a few practical issues (windows haven’t been fitted yet) mean I can’t work there until next week but it’s all looking good.
And I’ve been installing the exhibition at Westbury Arts Centre!
It’s looking fantastic, if I do say so myself. I love the contrast between my work and Sally Brooks Ceramic shacks sculptures.
I’m also doing a workshop.
But are they really excuses when they’re all part of the process to getting my work seen? I have weeks when all I do is paint. And to prove it, in time honoured Blue Peter fashion…
Here’s one I prepared earlier!
Keble College’s Student union bar…
And it’s not hard to see why. Discovery is a delightful surprise as the quad’s entrance is an archway which gives no warning of its secrets!
