My Work on Display at Greenwich Dance

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

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.

Aldeburgh

Sunday, September 8th, 2013

September 8th 2013

The Suffolk coast has always been a favorite hideaway for me and my kids. It began when I inherited my Uncle’s caravan when eldest son (now 19) was a toddler. I found a campsite on the Suffolk coast, allowing us the freedom to spend long summers on the beach and in the countryside. I no longer have the caravan but occasionally still manage to escape the metropolis for a weekend by the sea.

This painting is exhibited at Made in Greenwich until October 20th 2013.

If you missed my live drawings in the multi-media performance installation Formed View on August 16, which you could have watched in the Arbeit gallery or via the live streaming, it is now available to watch on the Hackney Live web site.

See the drawings emerge as I draw, watch Lyle Wheeler while he dances and James Haswell-D’Arcy as he directs him.

August 20 2013

On Friday evening I was privileged to be part of dance artist Christopher Matthews multi-media performance installation, Formed View, at the Arbeit Gallery in Hackney Wick. Formed View was part of Hackney WickED Festival. While dancer Lyle Wheeler created dynamic flowing improvisation and James Haswell-D’Arcy gave him spoken feed back and direction, I made drawings of Lyle as he moved and of James as he responded to Lyle. The dance performance along with the verbal, written and drawn response was streamed live on the Hackney Live website as well as to an audience within the gallery, who watched via the TVs.

A few of the many sketches made during the evening:

Drawing Formed View at Arbeit Gallery

Thursday, August 15th, 2013

August 15th 2013

Tomorrow evening I will be drawing at Arbeit Gallery, Hackney. I am part of dance artist Christopher Matthews multi-media performance installation Formed View. Formed View investigates politics of perception of the moving figure through improvisation. I will draw dancers Lyle Weaver and James Haswell D’Arcy while they dance. With us also responding to the improvised movement will be writers Alexandrina Hemsley, Jamila Johnson-Small and Charlotte Ashwell of BELLYFLOP Magazine. Our responses of words and mark making will be filmed and fed to television screens to spectators within the gallery who will be in a different space.

Christopher asks “What is the role of the dancer as he/she is being watched?”, “What is the role that the physical appearance of the dancer plays in the situation?”, “What role does the mode of presentation play in the perception of the moving figure?”, “How does improvisation affect or not the relation between the performer and the spectator?”

Formed View will be streamed live on the Hackney Live website. To be part of the streamed event follow on Twitter -@hackneylive and like Hackney Live on Facebook -fb/hackneylive. The drawings will be posted on this blog over the weekend.

Formed View is part of Hackney WickED Festival

Midsummer Art Fair

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

June 20th 2013

This weekend 21st – 23rd June, the Landmark Arts Centre is running a Midsummer Art Fair. Based in Teddington, the Landmark Arts Centre is housed in a 19th century former church complete with beautiful stained glass windows. My stand is 38, I am on a raised area at the front of the building.

I am selling 4 new etchings never seen before, so new that I haven’t yet photographed them, as well as the 3 sugar lift and aquatint etchings, part of the series with SUB, and also other etchings some framed, some in my browser, drawings and and smaller paintings.

I am also showing (and hopefully selling) Marilyn, the wire sculpture I created to go on stage with Yolande York-Edgell while she performed the dance about Marilyn Monroe last year. Marilyn would be equally happy in a house, office entrance hall or  garden she is made of galvanised wire and sprayed with lacquer.

Marilyn was created in 2012 when I was Artist in Residence with Yorke Dance Project, to be on stage with dancer Yolande Yorke Edgell in a moving dance about Marilyn Monroe.
