Legs

Last week my New Art Spaces, Leigh studio, already with a wall full of feet started to accumulate legs. I’m working with calligraphy ink and wild blackberry juice that I froze last year. The juice does fade over time, on paper and fabric yet I like this transience and having worked with movement for most of my life, something that is going to fade, to change feels familiar.

Colour!

Many thanks to Flower Shop By Gill, 1A Smith Street in Atherton, www.flowershopbygill.co.uk who allowed me to take some photographs of these amazing roses. The real, living rose is very colouful, shocking and surreal (I could continue…..) yet they seem to photograph well and really suit this time of year.

New in the Box

Many thanks to Ken Prescott for putting this new ‘make’ in the small box, in the indoor block on Pennington Flash last week. Ken said that he made it with materials lighter in colour to show up better in the box and in photographic images. I think it does.

Feet

Not surprisingly, feet have emerged in my mark making recently. Though I’m still very immobile I can get into two of my creative spaces regularly and have been doing a lot of mark making and working with fabric and found installation materials. I’m not sure where this work is going and feel like this is a time for map making, as I am limited to how far I can travel presently. This current work is supported by Castlefield Gallery’s New Art Spaces. Castlefield Gallery’s,  www.castlefieldgallery.co.uk New Art Spaces (NAS) is an...

New In The Box

Here is another ‘make’ by Kenneth Prescott which he placed in the small box, in the indoor block on Pennington Flash last week. Ken commented, “It is a dark part of a branch with additions and it is not showing too well on the photo. I will put content into the small box every few weeks and use lighter coloured wood for the makes so they will show up better when photographed.” Many thanks Ken, I am still unable to get out to the flash so it is great that another artist is looking after this little box and filling it...

Many thanks to Kenneth Prescott and local writer CJ Harter (www.cjharterbooks.co.uk) who will be looking after and puting content into this small box in the indoor block on Pennington Flash over the next few weeks. This image shows a ‘make’ by Ken  currently on display. I am on crutces for a while with a ruptured achilles tendon so am very grateful to Ken and Chris and also looking forward to sharing what they put in the box over the coming weeks. Thanks again!

End Of Winter

Today I displayed in the box a small photograph of some marks I have made on a much larger scale, again inspired by this very end of winter.

Box Drying Out

Box Drying Out

Last week, after the short closure of the indoor block on Pennington Flash, I found this small box completley glued together with mold! Lots of scrubbing and some scraping of the photograph that was stuck to the perspex on the front followed. After a winter, during which one thing and another has prevented the re-emergence of other boxes, I’m not sure what the spring will hold, yet this little box is now back in use. So do leave small images, artwork or writing in the postbox and I will continue to display them. I still have a small...
