I am happy to say I have been accepted by Stiwdio Maelor for their residency, commencing the 22nd November until the 6th December 2015.
Stiwdio Maelor, based in Lower Corris, North Wales provides artist and writers the space and opportunity to “refocus on their work, and find new inspiration”.The studio originally a house and shop front is based in what was once a quarry mining town, which is now surrounded by forested hills, and ideal location for my proposal.
I proposed to use the residency as a meditation retreat. I hope through been able to dedicate time to prolonged meditations, away from daily distractions, and the unfamiliar location, it will help my work develop and be fresh without any preconceived ideas. I want to keep it loose and simple and see what happens and develops from the time and use of the space.
