I’ve really go into zine making and collage while working from home, so I have been thinking about how my sculptures would look when thinking about context and placement outside.
I’ve also been thinking about performance and my work living in the parameters of photographic stills and how that keeps an piece of time alive.
A series of photographs of the tulip cave out and about in the local environment. The idea of becoming a part of a trail, many children suggested it looked like a foxglove or a mushroom. Some thought that it was natural, it created a dialog and made me think more about what my work is trying to say.
Recently I entered a exhibition at Gallery No. 32 in London. The works I created works that were made from rust dyed fabric, natural plaster (flour, water and salt), a few twigs and a wire shell. I’ve added some photographs of being featured online but also my making area. I had to post these to London, which was an interesting concept. They will be there for a month, I am excited to see what they come back like after being outside for so long.
