The Hat And The Fox

1 Jun

FAB 7 8

Here’s the final pair of drawings I made during Fringe Arts Bath last Saturday. Working with an ad hoc group of artists, The Plebeian Scribblers, we did some sessions of performance drawing in the street during A FAB Intervention, curated by Melanie Ezra and Tim Kelly. The drawing on the left features the hat of fellow Plebeian Scribbler, Melvyn Williams and on the right, the back of Lynne Bebb‘s head wearing a bespoke needle-felted fox mask by Ann Lucas. I prepared my A3 bound sketchbook with brown parcel wrapping paper, stuck in with Pritt stick glue and drew with conté crayons in black, sanguine and white with fine line work in Faber Castell Pitt drawing pen, size S.

 

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

 

Under Wraps

"Identity" at The SPace

“Identity” at The SPace

I’ve been involved in an artist collective, members of Swansea Print Workshop, at The SPace. We’ve had the place since mid-November and will be there for another three weeks. One of the best things about this has been the impetus for some of the artists to work together, to discuss and collaborate and we’re launching an installation tomorrow, instigated by Pip Woolf, who provided huge pieces of tissue paper for us to work on and then she’s used the results to wrap the gallery. It’s open for just a few days – there’s a discussion led by Pip followed by refreshments Friday (29th) from 5.30 to 7 pm and it’s open daily Friday, Saturday and next Wednesday, 11.30 to 5pm.

 

Pip says,

I am currently exploring “Identity” as a subject that has arisen from my ongoing research alongside dementia, those diagnosed with it, those living with it and those who are supporting. In choosing to show my current work in progress at the Space I have had to consider how I can use the venue respectful of the other 13 members. At the same time when I first saw the SPAce it seemed to offer a potentially interesting and experimental venue to introduce my early enquiries through making.

The discussion will focus on how my studio work has developed and how showing here intersects with my interest in collaborative work. 


The SPace arose as a group of printmakers saw an opportunity to promote their work as well as the fantastic facility that is Swansea Print Workshop. Many of us do not know each other so co-operative use of the SPace is a key element. The temporary pop up has been created as outreach of Swansea Print Workshop courtesy of a generous arrangement with Coastal Housing.”

The SPace continues until February 13th at 217 High Street, Swansea.
