Back on Blogger again with my MA show




I have given up with wordpress as I can no longer access it on my rather ancient Mac! It is so frustrating when you have a computer that works perfectly well and then you can no longer use it for certain actions - in the last few months I have been unable to use Skype, Dropbox and update Adobe Flash - now Wordpress is added to the list. I suppose at some point I need to get a new computer but quite honestly while this one is working I don't feel much inclined to spend money (at the moment just for these few things!). It was going to be my final post on Wordpress anyway as I have now finished my MA in Contemporary Art Practice and I was only using it to post about my MA practice.
So I am back to using good old reliable blogger and this post is just to show some photos from my MA show in July at Royal William Yard, Plymouth

It was a brilliant opening and I really enjoyed myself - after all the hard work it was finally time to relax
I'd like to finish this post with some words sent to me after the show - it was so kind of Richard to take the time to give this review.


‘The challenge of using the space and creating, installing was brilliantly done. Your walk installations transformed the space, watching people interact with your work, walking the line or circling the light added to their energy’  
‘A Long Walk’ installation.
 People were studying individual prints but in doing so bowed in reference to the qualities of each individual (print). There was a spiritual space, about a metre from the work where they stooped to look, a prayer wall, thought wall, feeling wall, or simply a diary or record of moments in time with nature. Lots of individual elements, but looking down the line, seeing the beginning of the journey and the distant end, the perspective playing with the angled prints and the linear repeating patterns of decaled edges of pristine paper, the whole and the sum of the individual parts only added to the spatial dimension of the work and the space it was within. The identity of one print was added to by the relationship with its neighbour sometimes close sometimes farther apart, the vertical prints vibrated, had a pattern, a signature, a beat. It is an infinite horizon line which if walked will continue to adapt and change to the responses to time and place’.

A circular walk at Wembury

On one of the only decent days in January about a week ago I did a 7 mile circular walk at Wembury with a friend - there were a few spots of rain but we managed to eat our lunch in the sunshine overlooking the river at Noss Mayo 

Leaving Wembury crossing fields 

Up, down, sideways walking?

We only saw this as we came out of the field!

On the way back to Wembury along the coastal path 
I hope this stormy weather we're having at the moment will subside then I can do this walk again - a lovely day out.
