Slowly Stitching Sheen

27 Nov

sheen 5

Still stitching away at my embroidered portrait of Michael Sheen. Local artist Ann Jordan got in touch to comment that people often don’t realise the immense amount of time put into textile art. She has a fabulous solo show, Life And Loss, at Volcano on Swansea’s High Street at the moment, running until December 2nd. It’s well worth a visit.

 

If you fancy doing your own Michael Sheen in collage please join me and Patti McJones at GS Artists this Friday – follow the link here to book in. It’s free but they appreciate pre-booking so they can work out the catering – they’re providing a free high tea too.

Controversy, Art And Having A Scribble

16 Nov

I went to GS Artists on Swansea’s High Street this afternoon for the launch of their new exhibition and a panel talk and a tasty vegan lunch. Of course, I had to have a scribble. I was sitting next to fellow scribbler Patti McKenna-Jones and she was having a scribble too.  The panel included artists Gavin Turk, Debbie Rees, Jane Simpson and Owen Griffiths and there was a lively and at times controversial discussion from the floor.

We’re Not Proud

9 Nov

From November 9th at Cinema & Co, Swansea, the new BogArt exhibition by me and Patti McJones.

caco 1

Art is mostly exhibited in galleries and museums that can be quite intimidating to many people, so Patti and I took up an offer by Anna, the owner of Cinema & Co, to use her substantial toilets to exhibit some of our work. We call it BogArt – art in the bogs – and it’s very democratic because people don’t have to go to a gallery but everyone has to go to the toilet. We’re not too proud to show our work here.

The work will be up for a few months but please look at Cinema and Co’s website for opening times. And here’s a short film of us talking about it …

 

 

 

 

Getting Mucky Together

Getting Mucky

I spent a couple of hours at Swansea’s Creative Bubble this morning with fellow artists Patti McJones and Chris Bird-Jones. We unleashed a box of compressed charcoal! And got mucky together. That’s one of the nicer things about being an artist, you always have an excuse to shamble around in overalls with charcoal dust up to your elbows.

Patti McJones and Rosie Scribblah are Revolting Women. Oh yes we are. And we’re coming to a venue near you soon (well, near you if you live by Swansea, Wales, and soon-ish, around International Women’s’ Day in March).
