I am a slow art practitioner. Each of my pieces requires extensive time to complete and therefore collections can be years in the making. I was thinking that It may be helpful to my practice to have a place to document the process and progress of each piece, as well as any side projects I may have going. So this blog is born.
I don't plan to spend hours nutting out explanations of what I am doing and why, I am not a writer. I hope this can be a place for a few scrawlings and images of my works in progress. Time will tell.
After years of silent work, why a blog, why now? With the opening of The Blake Prize slowly fading into memory, the resounding feeling I have is that I am humbled that my work was chosen to hang alongside those of such talented and varied artists. It seems a fitting time to come out of my shell. Just a little.
I have dealt with some significant illness over the last few years, so having my piece in an exhibition of spiritual work feels like a turning point. I have come to realise that I just want to make work, so that is what I'm going to do.
