Open Studio and Talk

Solo Exhibition, Studio Practice, Public Event

7th September 2014
In conjunction with Somerset Art Weeks I will be opening my studio and showing my latest work in its gallery. When deciding to open my studio (for the first time since building it) at the beginning of the year, I had no idea what I would like to exhibit, but was focused on experimenting with new ideas and possibly materials, as a challenge to myself and my work. As the months rolled out I found my interests both broadening and yet galvanising, and I'm now keen to see how the new work looks when exhibited, and what response it will get from its audience - not least a film piece which is certainly a new medium for me. As part of this experiment I shall also be giving a talk which will focus on my fascination with rock, in all aspects of my life, not just my work. This is possibly more of a gamble than exhibiting new work for the first time, but I'm fired up about bringing it all together on the night.

I think the text for the SAW brochure sums it all up pretty well:
'An experiment in form, material and thought: a sculpture installation centred on rock and the position it holds in our psyche. From pebbles to mountains, from deep time to now: a quest to find a balance between contemporary art and the sublime beauty of the natural world.'

Studio open: 11am - 6pm, Thursday - Sunday, 25th September - 5th October.
Talk 6.30 pm Saturday 4th October - no booking required.

Address: Croft Studio, Pound Lane, Buckland St Mary, Chard, Somerset, TA20 3SN mb: 07941 650164
