My Wire Sculpture at Harrods during September

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

4 September 2014

Baume & Mercier Sculpture Commission. The sculpture is displayed in a special Promesse exhibition in the Fine Watch Room on the Ground Floor at Harrods during the month of September.

You may remember that in June I was commissioned by the luxury Swiss watch brand, Baume & Mercier, to create a 5 x’s life size wire sculpture of two hands with little fingers entwined in the ‘Pinkie Promise’, the sculpture was made to celebrate the launch of the new ladies collection, Promesse. The sculpture is already a great marketing success, from the Marketing and Communications Manager: “The sculpture has been in Harrods for almost a week now and the response has been fantastic”. Visitors to the Fine Watch Room in Harrods can collect a padlock at the Baume & Mercier stand to lock to the sculpture, a pen is available to write your message, you keep the key.

Since the launch in London at the ICA in June the sculpture has travelled to Singapore to launch Promesse and later in the year will be in New York and Dubai. Just wish I could go too.

New Movement Collective. Casting Traces

New Movement Collective. Casting Traces. The Paper Maze

at the Louise Blouin Foundation, London.

Casting Traces is an uplifting, dynamic multi-media performance. Six highly skilled dancers, move amongst a labyrinth of reams of hanging paper, the audience free to follow independently or together as they wish. Violinist, Aisha Orazbayeva, opened the show with a beautiful melancholic solo, her shadow behind paper, which was to be painted open for us to move through the silhouettes of the dancers.

I haven’t read Paul Auster’s novel The New York Trilogy which inspired the performance but am now encouraged to.

New Movement Collective will be in Brighton performing Casting Traces. The Paper Maze, 28-30 August at Circus Street Market. Then to Winchester at The Guildhall 23-25 October. Don’t miss this extraordinary engaging work

My Work on Display at Greenwich Dance

Beyond Front@: Bridging New Territories

beyond front@ 1    Beyond Front@. 2beyond front@ painting

As Resident Artist  at Greenwich Dance (GDA) I drew the dancers of Beyond Front@ from Slovenia, Austria, Croatia, Hungary and the UK during a four day Dance Communication Lab at Greenwich Dance in 2012. Over the last year they have continued to meet in the host countries and created a dance, In Reference To The Robbers Cave, with choreographer Rob Clarke.

Performance: In Reference To The Robbers Cave. 27th September 2013

My drawings of the process and an oil painting are on display at Greenwich Dance for the next few weeks. All work is for sale.
