Lungs Project Issue 2 // Dialogus

Recently my illustrations from the series 'Distant Lands' have been included in the second publication by Lungs Project, alongside other emerging artists based in the North East working across all kinds of exciting platforms and medias.

Buy a copy of the publication here.

The publication was launched last week, alongside an accompanying exhibition displaying works by a selected few of the artists involved in issue 2. The exhibition is at Vane (39 Pilgrim St, Newcastle) and is running until the 21st October.

A Small Part of a Much Bigger Picture

SO amidst my current manic non-stop drawing/illustrating, I keep being drawn to the closer details of my drawings. These close ups are starting to interest me more than the finished whole image (annoying considering the amount of hours and hand cramps they consume but that's the beauty of art I suppose).

They remind me of film stills... or at least in that same way that a paused moving image can stop time and pause all of what's going on in the film, to that one small frame of there and then. So I suppose that's how I see these details, a small part of a much bigger picture.

EXHIBITION REVIEW: SEE:SAW exhibition and 'Where We Go Next'

A fantastic review by Georgia Dearden, Goldsmiths student, is now published online: click here to read about her experience and thoughts of the show SEE:SAW, an end of year show by graduating Fine Arts BA students at York St John University. A review of Lottie Walsh's exhibited film Where We Go Next (A Place That's Neither Real Nor Fantasy) can also be read.

'Where degree shows can appear fragmented and disparate, SEE:SAW draws upon the artists’ sense of community, using the studio dynamic to the benefit of the work curated in these same spaces.'

'Landscapes': A series of digital images

A new series of digital images, playing with the dimension and form of a landscape. Using Adobe Photoshop to manipulate a 2D photograph of a landscape, I continue my investigation into the abilities of modern technology to transform and present new and strange virtual worlds. The images in their final form remain as flat and distanced as the original photograph, yet hold 3-dimensional qualities encapsulating our curiosity and engagement with these new unfamiliar structures.
