The boring, mundane side of being an artist. It isn’t all about creativity. I have an exhibition coming up next week and the work has to be framed and, being a skint artist, I can’t afford to take over 2 dozen works to the framers so I’m knuckling down and doing it myself. It’s a mixture of linocuts and drawings, a new body of work.
I’m working at the Creative Bubble Artspace for a few days, with the other members of the 15 Hundred Lives art collective. It’s really useful to have the space to spread out and work together, discussing the mix of our work and how we’re going to frame and hang it.
On Friday and Saturday, it’s the second anniversary of our monthly public art events. We open the doors of the artspace and invite the public to come in and see how artists work, what we do all day. We’ll be celebrating with cake, Victoria Sandwich and Lemon Drizzle. And art of course. Click here to find out more.
