Degree Show Work | RCA | London

Filed under Exhibitions, Uncategorized

This work is a hybrid work, a result of my own cross cultural experiences. It speaks of work itself – the work as a verb. It stitches together relics of past orders. It weaves its own roots. It scans through different resolutions of European landscape.

Not all the work I put into this work is visible.

The entire work was made relying on needle tools. Even the paintings were unpainted with a needle.The floor is handwoven. It had been stored in squares, rolled up, and  sawn together. It was made to be walked on until it wears off.

This work is a paradox proposition. Making through undoing, erasing, preserving the state of non permanence. Making through engaging in persistent and labour intense activity.

This work does few things at the same time. It eats its own tail whilst trying to speak. It pronounces its own language. It wears itself off.

Perhaps I am naive to think the work can do that. Or perhaps I worked not hard enough, choosing primitive tools and looking into things too close for too long.

Acting on impulses, compelled to ‘realise’ ideas, we leave all kinds of curious fragments in our wake. Our studios are full of remains, mistakes, tests, exercises, spare or abandoned components and by-products of processes. We keep these things (possibly forever) without expecting them to ever leave the studio.
This exhibition presents the ‘work’ of four artists – Oil sketches on found postcards, accidental drawings on cutting boards, spray painted paper that appears like a masking tool, unexpected by-products of printmaking, digital sketches/rejected commissions, etc.
Work is the most important word of this show. That is to say work as activity, which is opposed to or ahead of products. The real work. The things we’re happy to make when no one is looking. Usually unshowable and somehow unthrowable.

NEW PROJECT – TRIANGULAR NETWORK WORKSHOP IN WALES

Filed under Uncategorized

This month I will be leaving my studio to participate in artists’ workshop Popty 2015.

Popty 2015 is an art residency and workshop for twenty international artists from Southern Africa, Wales and the UK. The project brings artist together for two weeks of intensive, residential experimentation and creativity. The artists bring skills and ideas to share while working with unfamiliar materials in unfamiliar ways, prioritising process over product and ultimately working towards an Open Day to show the results of the creative experimentation. Its location is accessible to a wide audience across south west Wales and includes universities with HE and MA art faculties in Swansea, Aberystwyth and Carmarthen.

Popty 2015 workshop is open to visitors from Saturday 17th October, daily from 10am-6pm, until the Open day on Saturday 24th October.
There are two evenings of public slideshow presentations by participating artists:

Wednesday 14th October at Oriel Q Gallery in Narberth
Friday 16th October at Oriel Myrddin Gallery in Carmarthen

The project is supported by Arts Council of Wales and it is a part of Triangular Network.
