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.
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.
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.
