Curation meeting

So on Friday,  I arranged a last minute meeting for the curation task group, we all met up to discuss what needs to be done in each room and how best to organise the start of the work. The email me and demi sent out to the students got sent out today and I posted…

Curation

What a day, I had originally gone into uni to make my shelves but Given the opportunity to ask about how the curation group is going to work in terms of degree show prep I ended up being the organiser.  The staff went to great effort to decide which provisional spaces the students would be…

Starting from the bottom

My mum works in IT for television and told me that the best option if you’re aspiring to work in production design is to start at the bottom. I’ve been searching the internet for work experience and the only one specific to what I want to do is at the bbc working in the children’s…

Moving out

So, on one of the hottest days of the year, it was out job as a group to move out of the studio. A room in which we occupy and have lived for the past year, creating work, now was the time to move out. I wish that I had taken a photo of the…

Spreading the word

For the exhibition there is going to be a press release, invitations and posters going up in the University. I decided to try and spread the word on facebook because I know that pretty much all of the Fine Art, Graphics and Photography students use groups of which i am a member to spread the…

Presentation Feedback

Live Project

For my live project this year, I have been allowed to help one of the Mres students to curate an exhibition for one of Chesters most well respected lecturers. I first saw John Renshaws paintings a few months ago, in Chris’s office and I was immediately engrossed by them. In these first paintings, you get…

Painting with plaster

I decided after much deliberation, to try and experiment with creating textured plaster paintings. The above are images of the first three that I created. I chose to use the colourscheme of the paintings that i made last year mostly because the white plaster would take a great deal of paint to create a vivid…

How much do you cost?

We had a lecture that was aimed to educate us on how much we cost as an artist if we were commissioned to do a piece of work. The cost of work is either – – How much people are prepared to pay. – How much I’m willing to do for it. The way to…

Portfolio Interview

Im going to talk to you briefly about my practice. Most of my work tends to be sculptural but drawing and painting often inform allot of my work. For instance This is a piece that I created from 80 singular wire sculptures individually hung from nails. They were originally blind continuous line drawings of tools that…
