Found at Centrespace

Thank you to all who came and saw our show at Centrespace and gave us such fantastic feedback, and thank you to Ruth for being such a joy to show with!

It has been such a boost to talk to people about my work, and for them to understand and appreciate what I am talking about, and not think that I am round the twist for loving maps and wanting to make concrete pebbles.  I don’t think I had appreciated just how valuable the experience of getting work out of my studio space and onto walls where it can be seen and commented on was going to be.  I will do it again (but not until I have had a good long while to recover).

I’m alternating between excitement and terror about the fact that in two weeks I will be putting up a joint exhibition with Ruth Broadway at Centrespace.

I’m out of my comfort zone – it will be the first time that I have shown a large number of my   geological screenprints all together and I am hoping to get my work to a whole new audience.

The private view is from 6.30 to 9pm on Thursday 27th April at Centrespace Gallery.  Everyone is welcome, the more the merrier – especially if you have a thing for maps, rocks, museums, colour, or just a glass of wine and a chat.

A new way of printing for a new body of prints.

Rather than dictating exactly which colours will appear on a print, I am letting the colours decide for themselves.  For my circle prints I am mixing inks to match colours from the key of a geological map, and then seeing what colours are created when the inks are overprinted.  A little bit scary, but very rewarding…
