An exhibition and open studio
It has been a while since my last post as I have been bit busy moving studios. I have said good bye to Red Wire and moved to Wolstenholme Creative Space. In this time I was also involved in a couple of events. Firstly, for LightNight, 13th of May I took part in an open studio with my old studio group Red Wire. It was a lovely night, opening our studio to the general public, we had a lot of visitors and I met some interesting people.
I was also selected for the Contemporary Drawing exhibition in the Bohemia Space, from 28 May – 16 July 2011. The piece which was chosen, The Blue Lady is a portrait study of the virgin from Leonardo’s Virgin on the Rocks. It was an experimental piece, looking at the use of line for tone. I began looking at “old masters” and their work for their use of tone, I find translating tone difficult that it goes against my nature and my love for lines. This is an on going theme in my work which I shall no doubtingly post about later.
