Working Flat Out

27 Jul

day 1

I’m working flat out for the group exhibition I’m in next month at Oriel Ceri Richards, with Sylvie Evans, collagist and Graham Parker, painter. We’re part of a collective called 15 Hundred Lives and as well as exhibiting together, we do a monthly public access event at the Creative Bubble artspace where we open the doors to anyone who wants to come in and see what it is that artists do all day. It’s our second anniversary at Creative Bubble in August so as well as the exhibition, we’re also putting on a big arty birthday bash. That’s why I’m working flat out!

I’m doing a drawing using the manier noir technique. It’s French for ‘in the dark manner’ but I like to call it Drawing Darkly. Here’s some information about it 🙂

        I’m going to be away until start September then, if it’s open for a few weeks, I’ll try and get there. I’ll google it.

        It’s a nice place for a holiday. Gower Peninsula and Brecon Beacons on our doorstep, Pembrokeshire Coastal Path not far. Lots for children to do.

        I remember.
        My Dad worked at Baglan Bay (big refinery or power station kind of thing visible on the coast?) and we lived in Brynmill for a year. First place I’d lived with a bathroom and inside toilet as I remember. I learned a bit of Welsh but then there was a very long teachers strike. We would walk to the Mumbles and pick blackberries on the way.
        Nearly half a century ago.

        Baglan isn’t far. Quite gentrified now. There’s a lovely walk and cycle path to Mumbles along the seafront and still lots of blackberries.
