Inside Art

At the end of September I made some work for Inside Art. Inside Art was a weekend of eight venues in Southbourne open to the public. The majority of these were peoples homes and each one had a curator who invited artists to show work in all sorts of places. The lovely part of the event was an expansion of the connections and creative community in the area….expect another similar event soon.




b-side Festival

Next on the list of updates, b-side festival. I have been a fan and visitor since it began and can’t urge you enough to book in a visit next time it happens. They have a strong emphasis on site specific work and some amazing spaces to experiment with. This year ranged from shops to bill boards and tunnels to churches something for everyone. I particularly connected to OSR’s Weather Station project, Claudia Dharamshi, Katarina Rose, Lee Berwick’s ‘The Sonic Anomaly Show’ and Debbie Adele Cooper

The Crucible

I’ve been a bit behind on posting here over the summer, basically to busy to do it! So a bit of catching up is called for. Firstly I had the immense pleasure of working with OSR Projects on a specifically tailored gathering for artists and producers to connect and develop their own individual projects whilst seeing great art and eating good food, bit of a winner all round. The art was courtesy of b-side festival on the Isle of Portland. It was a great day better than I could have hoped for, met lovely kindred spirits and hatched plans for allsorts…

Document part two

A couple of weeks ago I had a chance to bring my Document project to Bank Street Arts, Sheffield. This was a very personal project for me as the core narrative of the work was Sheffield and my family. A huge number of the objects involved came from Sheffield originally, so its been lovely to bring it home.

Document is an investigation into how we approach documenting – whether it be a life, an object, an event or our memories.


Mark Making in the woods

I have just spent the most pleasant of weekends in the beautiful setting of Wimbourne St Giles, Dorset at Colourfest. I had the opportunity to make large drawings in the woods and encourage others to collaborate. I collected found objects as tools for drawing with ink and experimented with the chalky soil and crumbly wood particles to create pigments and chalks. I also laid out a large sheet of white paper to encourage the placement of beautiful found objects so we could really see them and appreciate the shapes and colours all around us. My idea of heaven.

Channa Horwitz

Popped into Raven Row a couple of weeks ago to see the work of Channa Horwitz. Some beautiful beautiful and sensitive drawing if a little obsessive! See what you think…

Making Plans

Back in April SIX had the distinct pleasure of hosting Anne & Christian Edwardes for a weeks residency at Bank Street Arts, Sheffield. The exhibition investigated the process of making garments by drawing attention to the instruction, materials, tools, and methods used in that making process. A huge body of work was collected and there will be more on this in the future I’m sure…
