Penmon

Today I went to Anglesey and had a fantastic day: I saw an amazing exhibition (Ms Eleri Jones' in Oriel Ynys Mon), drove passed a brown bear whom I presume was on his/her way to Ireland, met one of the best and possibly one of the most intelligent dogs in the world, watched a seal steal without shame from very patient fishermen, relaxed in the sun with my lovely friends and created some artwork.


The beach at Penmon was the perfect place to make some work I plan to develop, a series of installations that explore a 'False Perception' (name of the series of artwork) where photographs taken at specific angles will provide a false perception of scale- at first glance. Here is a sneak peak of some of my favourite pics from the day...

Future Workshops

I am hoping to work on some animation workshops that are inspired by the wire sculptures we make and the effect they have on the light. Here is a (very rough and very short!) film to get your appetites going!

Workshops for Criw Celf

I was really chuffed to be asked to lead a Criw Celf workshop in May based on my own art practice. I have worked with 180 year 8 students in a local secondary school to create a group installation in the past and decided to run something similar. This group created their own wire sculptures which we turned into a suspended installation and then we had a go at some shadow photography and OH projector drawing/photography. A big thank you to Criw Celf and all who organised it, here are some of the photos from the day;
