A Significant Difference

There is a significant difference in quality between the digital files I habitually post (as in 2nd image below) and the high res files (immediatley below). The high re files allow for closer scrutiny of fine detail (enlargement in the header image) giving a better idea of the painting (123 x 125 cm) in real life, not possible using the lower […]

A Return

This year’s residency just finished has been a very rich and intense experience. One opportunity I found particularly valuable was being shown how to make a projection mapping installation at South Kiosk Gallery in Peckham. We worked in groups and achieved a poetic end result which in turn made me think of my painting. This surprised me as […]

Kentridge has worked things out by filtering them through himself, not taking things second hand and because of that, he is able to talk with a […]

I am doing much background reading on the subject of poiesis and still gathering together my main references.  I have already written […]

My project has been evolving – a year ahead is not too soon to envisage an outcome. There is an opportunity to show an interim piece of work at the […]

Residency Reviewing

Residency Timetable Working backward in time, the latest being freshest in my mind. Featured image shows detail of a wall between Camberwell and South London Gallery, the location of our pop up show. Prior to the pizza outing (when we relaxed together at Caravaggio’s) we had had a final session togethe in which we followed […]
