So my residency is drawing to a close, and to finish it all off I had an open studio event exhibition in the studio. 
Here are some images from the private view, as well as documentation of some work!

Hello there! Haven’t done much blogging this week as I have been super busy drawing and painting! It’s been a great week full of expected surprises- originally I was terrified of using paint alongside the large sense of scale but actually, am very much enjoying it. I think it was the right step to take with my work, that little something just to help push it a bit further. I am still getting used to using acrylic however, so have been going back and forth with scale to try and understand how to use it a little bit more. So far so good though!

So yesterday I embarked on the thinking behind Jimmy’s feedback, and began large scale wall sized drawings (I plan on using an entire scroll and hope to achieve 5 large pieces within a series). Within my work, scale is everything, and I like the idea of playing with the illusion of the layers within drawings; I feel this allows me to act as Architect and play with existence and emptiness within the drawing. This way, I can play with the possibilities of simplifying the space and choosing what to leave out so that scale cannot be completely understood by the spectator.

Today was a great day. I tried some large scale projection and light experiments, and decided to go in a whole other direction due to the really positive and helpful feedback I received from Jimmy Cosgrove. Here are some images of what I was up to today. I’ve decided to keep making work without thinking about a final outcome or end result, as I work best working in a series but also without the added pressure of something final. My goal is to push photography, drawing and a bit more painting, but developing a much larger scale. I look forward to the idea of having more people coming to look at my work in an open studio format rather than an exhibition.

Here are some drawings which act as blue print sketches for an exhibition idea. The final pictorial space would comprise of laser cut and etched Perspex, light and variable colour projection, which would allow the space to look like a moving image of space and narrative. The idea is to have multiple viewpoints ever changing by it’s spectators depending on the route they take to navigate the space. Below are sketches and a photograph of how this may take shape.
