Making a body
Many thanks to Kenneth Prescott for placing this small shape from my soft sculpture ‘Making a body’, currently showing in VS at New Art Spaces, Bolton, Churchgate House, Churchgate, Bolton, BL1 1HL in the small display box in the indoor block on Pennington Flash Country Park. I went to the Flash for the first time last week since injuring my achilles tendon in March and since the process of recovery is still slow, I am very grateful to volunteers like Ken for continuing to maintain this little box and add content.
The VS exhibition, a collaboration between Cross St Arts and New Art Spaces Leigh continues into October. It is very varied and well worth seeing. I also visited Stephy Shipley, a few doors down and was really inspired by her quiet yet powerfully evocative, ‘the land behind’, www.stephyshipley.co.uk. Paul Turnock’s large studio/exhibition space is great also, www.paulturnock.com .
