Sketch biro on paper, I was interested in the conversations and music playing in a friend’s room in Brighton last weekend, particularly the hands of the people in the room as they bring more to a conversation and how someone is expressing themselves

The painting I have been displaying at the Dorset Arts Fair this weekend, although it is unfinished it was interesting to gauge the audience’s reactions and thoughts on it so far.
Can’t finish it until after summer because I have to keep it at my new house and can’t get there easily but already I can’t wait to get back to working on it

This weekend I helped curate, and was exhibiting my new painting in, the performative exhibition “The Sorting Room” at the Dorset Arts Fair with AUB. The idea behind it was to create a space wherein the audience are invited to watch the technical processes involved in hanging and displaying artwork in a gallery. We had a total of 32 artists, all students from AUB Fine Art, exhibiting work ranging from painting, print, photography, sculpture and drawing.
All these artworks were haphazardly “stored” on one side of the space and around the outside of the walls, waiting to be displayed. Each piece of work was rotationally exhibited for 3 minutes at a time, giving it a chance to be under the spotlight and the “important” central figure in the gallery. It caused the audience to question what was the more important work, how important the curation and technical side of the gallery is, and the use of space and context of a gallery wall and the presence of the audience.
