Back on Blogger again with my MA show


I have given up with wordpress as I can no longer access it on my rather ancient Mac! It is so frustrating when you have a computer that works perfectly well and then you can no longer use it for certain actions – in the last few months I have been unable to use Skype, Dropbox and update Adobe Flash – now WordPress is added to the list. I suppose at some point I need to get a new computer but quite honestly while this one is working I don't feel much inclined to spend money (at the moment just for these few things!). It was going to be my final post on WordPress anyway as I have now finished my MA in Contemporary Art Practice and I was only using it to post about my MA practice.

So I am back to using good old reliable blogger and this post is just to show some photos from my MA show in July at Royal William Yard, Plymouth

It was a brilliant opening and I really enjoyed myself – after all the hard work it was finally time to relax
I'd like to finish this post with some words sent to me after the show – it was so kind of Richard to take the time to give this review.

‘The challenge of usingthe space and creating, installing was brilliantly done. Your walkinstallations transformed the space, watching people interact with your work,walking the line or circling the light added to their energy’

‘A Long Walk’ installation.

People were studying individual prints but in doing sobowed in reference to the qualities of each individual (print). There was aspiritual space, about a metre from the work where they stooped to look, aprayer wall, thought wall, feeling wall, or simply a diary or record of momentsin time with nature. Lots of individual elements, but looking down the line,seeing the beginning of the journey and the distant end, the perspectiveplaying with the angled prints and the linear repeating patterns of decalededges of pristine paper, the whole and the sum of the individual parts onlyadded to the spatial dimension of the work and the space it was within. Theidentity of one print was added to by the relationship with its neighboursometimes close sometimes farther apart, the vertical prints vibrated, had apattern, a signature, a beat. It is an infinite horizon line which if walkedwill continue to adapt and change to the responses to time and place’.
