I know it’s probably felt like I had disappeared off the face off the earth but rest assured I have been hard at my creative work. I just wish I could have had the time to share more of the journey with you! It’s been three intense months of research, ideas, learning and collaboration. The Place and Memory project has been a wonderful focus for me, I have been thinking a lot about my work and development. This has been refreshing as quite often life just gets in the way of what you’d rather be doing with your time.
I realise my jewellery work has taken a back seat and I feel that some restocking of my shop is urgently required.
The exhibition for the show looms within an uncomfortable distance now. Just a few more weeks to finalise those ideas. I settled on a 3D piece which, at first I envisaged to be on a grand scale but realised due to the sheer cost of the materials needed this was just out of the question. What will result will be far more intimate for the viewer.
The exhibition space is proving a bit tricky. It’s far from being that blank white cube we’re all used to these days. It is filled with wood, stone, textures and church fittings and monuments but I wanted to work with this in mind so have incorporated aspects of these materials into my piece of work.
Without giving too much away, here’s a sneaky look at what I’ve been doing……
The exhibition preview will take place on Friday 11th October, 6pm to 8pm, Holy Trinity Church, Boar Lane Leeds.
The exhibition continues from Saturday 12th to Saturday 19th October inclusive, 10am – 3pm Monday to Saturday.
I do hope you will be able to make it to the opening. More details of the film and exhibition will be posted soon.
