This new blog follows my current activity in printmaking while on artist's residency at the University of Suffolk
New page, Teaching, has been added with examples of personal artwork in painting, drawing and mixed media. Also examples of my teaching sketchbooks, student artwork and student sketchbooks.
Some project work developing ideas within printmaking as well as collage, and recording the progress are on my a-n artists talking blog:
Snapshots is a project exploring representation and the remoteness of images in the technological age. At the same time as clinging perhaps hopelessly to the conventions of the almost outmoded format, the quirkiness of the transformation of cutting and peeling the photographs reveals its own story. The work is both a testimony to traditions associated with the family snapshot as it records the ritualistic posing and framing our lives, and creates an insistent version of memory, while at the same time allegorising playfully.
