Life has been manic - settling in to a new routine in the fantastic city of Bristol!
I'm going to be showing some work in an exhibition in Cardiff in a couple of weeks (my first adventure into the Welsh art world!) It'll be at an exciting art space called tactileBOSCH. Will post pictures here after the show! Maybe see you at the opening...
An extraordinarily diverse exhibition spanning the length and depth of painting, sculpture, installation, drawing, photography, video and live art. Seventy Feet showcases the work of thirty-five emerging artists, recent graduates from Bath School of Art and Design. Three years in production - here it is.
Alongside the main exhibition is the Seventy Feet Project Space, which facilitates a dynamic live art programme for the duration of the show. A timetable of events will be available in the space and on our website throughout the week (going live soon).

A CLUSTER OF SCREWS
Originally part of the installation 'Around', I edited down the piece to a simple cluster of used screws.
RUNNING WATER THROUGH BENDY STRAWS (film)
My first foray into film. This is an uncomplicated film - a bit of fun I hope. Bendy straws jammed into a set of taps, with water running through continuously...
