Responsive Works 2015 –

I am currently developing a new series where the mark making used is my response or the response of others, to the environment that we’re in.  The work shown below, Restlessfocuses on continual change, using repeated gestural strokes in two blues altered by small additions of yellow & magenta.  A development of this piece was commissioned for the Time Garden in Frimley Park Hospital and is now on display by the entrance to garden.

Re-Purpose is the result of part performance and part artist response.  Set as a blank canvas in the Dis Rup Tive exhibition at the I’Klectic, the public were invited to make marks in response to emerging art being exhibited in run down areas of the city.  Participants were asked to consider aspects of renewal and re-purpose along side issues of visiting hard to reach and in some cases threatening parts of the capital in relationship with the draw of seeing new & contemporary art.

Initially I’d planned to respond to the results of the above by highlighting interesting marks, but this seemed fraudulent & instead I worked process cyan in all manner of methods creating a map of the major roads Shoreditch to New Cross.
