Whilst All The While, 2013 - cut & paste & digital collage, photography for Deptford X Art Festival
it's a quiet evening here, with music on, spotlight on the table along with; scalpel, scissors, pencils and paper - my tools.
There is a heavy load on. Involving people, parties, art-work, artlacuna work, children, partners, emotional upheaval, murder even (yes a murder locally leaving me cold, scared and wondering at this world), and then an inspiring talk by this man at the Temenos Academy. The yin and yang of life has shown itself in many ways this past week and a bit.
The things above make a frenzy ensue where quite often the only place I feel safe is in the creation of a different world, a my-world, a make-believe world, but at the same time a 'true' world (to me).
There are too many words to start describing and so I leave you with the latest art events which I hope you can come to:
BODIES THAT MATTER a one day event will take place this Friday 27th September at Space Station Sixty Five (and for those of you who ever did my Journal Your Dreams, I dreamt of doing something at this gallery and Friday it comes true!) This event is well worth coming to with all artists on site discussing our work salon/crit style but open to the public to listen in on, then free talks in the evening.
And on the same day Deptford X Art Festival Launches and I have a project: POSTERS THAT TELL THE TRUTH. You can find my creations down at the following venues: The Albany Theatre, Kids Love Ink, Radiant Property, Housewives Cash & Carry, The Salvation Army Shop, (up for two weeks) from Friday 27th September (they are outside or outward facing). A development of work that excites me as it moves beyond conventional gallery spaces.... I'm intrigued as to how and where it might lead.
A new image on pinterest here. In fact many new images, but hopefully you will see some more on Friday at Space Station Sixty Five if you make it down.....
One week to go until this starts too if you'd like to join us......
