Spaces Below. New Exhibition. Yering Station Gallery.

Saturday, March 3rd, 2018

A small glimpse of paintings in progress for my next exhibition, in April at Yering Station Gallery. I will be showing, new and older paintings and will include an installation of framed photographs, “Spaces Below”, shot in France. The gallery is large and raw with an industrial feel.  A perfect space for larger abstracts. All commissions taken from my sold artworks at Yering Station Gallery will be donated to…

Happy New Year ! New Work. New Exhibition.

Saturday, January 13th, 2018

After, a much needed break it’s back to work for 2018. I’m getting all geared up for my next solo exhibition, in April. I’m just waiting on a paint delivery and sorting out the studio, before I start the new work.

During my break, I worked on my website and listed more paintings in my Gallery.

I will also be adding more paintings, mixed media and textile pieces shortly.

Concretematter

To construct my 3D objects, I have used various methods: eco rust and Japanese Shibori dyeing, molding, casting, curing, sanding, chiselling, engraving, embedding, propagating, tearing, burning, sealing and finishing. To create the pieces, I combine hard and soft materials: industrial concrete, found packaging, lichen, moss, seaweed, vintage glass, cloth fragments and rusted found objects.

Experiments with Concrete Cloth and Rust. Sculpture.

Sunday, May 15th, 2016

Experiments with Concrete Cloth and Rust. Sculpture.

Just a quick update about what Ive been doing lately.

 

IMGP0141s

 

Work for my exhibition was almost finished, until, I discovered a bunch of rusted textiles Id forgotten about. Now, I want to make more sculpture. A solid form with thin wafers of cloth, concrete and rust.

Today, I’m heading into the studio to work out how to achieve this. Wet concrete is very formless so pouring, layer, upon layer of cloth then, concrete, in a mold, just wouldn’t work. The cloth would get covered with concrete on the outer edges and I want slices of cloth sticking out and visible on the outside.

Funny thing is, when I Googled it, all I came up with was my own experiments and work with concrete, cloth and rust.

So, I’m now in the process of inventing how to do this:)

More details about my “Wallmatter” exhibition coming soon!

The first raw reveal after 24 hours. At this stage, I need to make my final decisions and changes to this sculpture, while the concrete is still soft enough to work with. I discovered in some of my earlier experiments, once its rock hard, its more difficult to work with.

I am still working on this series of sculptures using concrete, rust and textiles that will be part of my “Wallmatter” exhibition.

Second Time Around.

Second Time Around: The Hubcap as Art

The gallery video from “Second time Around The Hubcap as Art ” environmental installation, I was invited to participate in at the “Museum of the Shenandoah Valley” in Winchester, VA. USA

The exhibition opened on the 6th. September and runs through to March 1, 2015.

Video produced by Larry Carroll

In support of the opening of Second Time Around, the MSV will concurrently present WASTE NOT, a version of the exhibition Green Revolution which is made available by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service based on an exhibition originally created by the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago, and its Black Creativity Council. WASTE NOT uses family-friendly, interactive activities and reused or re-purposed materials to focus on the environmental need to rethink, reuse, recycle, and reduce.
