End Of An Era

Me! Doodled! By Doodlemum!

Over the past three years I’ve been part of an art collective called 15 Hundred Lives with fellow artists Sylvie Evans and Graham Parker and we have put on 27 public access art events at the Creative Bubble Artspace. This last event at the weekend was our final regular monthly one.

 

That doesn’t mean we’re packing up completely, but we are busy with individual projects and in  future we’ll be popping up from time to time to do arty things but not as often as we have been.

Our final event was called TRANSITION, about the transition each of us is making artistically at the moment, we’re all trying out new approaches in our art practice.


We welcomed 2 guest artists over the weekend, Swansea’s Doodlemum Angie Stevens who doodled us and visitors on Friday and Melanie Ezra and her automata, soon to be the subject of a solo show at The Workers Gallery and Workshops, on the Saturday.

It was a bittersweet couple of days, we’ve worked with over 30 guest artists and welcomed hundreds of visitors to the Creative Bubble over the past two and a half years, but all good things come to an end.

 

I’m currently working on a series of expressive drawings of ancestral sites and if you want to see some of my other artworks, please click here.

    To be an artist one must live the art. The rest of us just enjoy sketching. It seems you live the art.

      I sometimes wonder if it’s a type of mental aberration! I know it’s something I have done almost obsessively since I was tiny. I read New Scientist every week and they’ve published quite a bit about creativity and it seems that creative might have something wired into our brains. Interesting stuff.

    i can imagine some sad feelings about having your last regular event for the time being Rosie, but a what a great thing you’ve all done Making art can be a somewhat solitary and sometimes lonely business but you’ve shown how to collaborate with other artists, stimulate your process , make connectionsand have a good time as well, the group’s an inspiration, as are the smashing drawings

      Thank you Phil. We’re having some time for a rethink. I am collaborating with a film maker and an archaeologist at the moment, I do like collaboration, like you say, art can be a lonely business.

    What a shame, but I’m certain that such a motivated group will find other – perhaps better – outlets.

      We’ll still be active, but it was getting to be too demanding to organise a monthly event, maybe two or three times a year from now on

    Great post, I also follow Doodlemum so fun to see her work here. Life changes and so do we, good luck to all of you in your future directions.

      Thanks Leonie. I love having my own Doodlemum portrait, it’s just like me too 😁
