Printing again .

July 28, 2011

        I’m having a great time printing at the moment – silkscreen images onto collaged   backgrounds. Monoprints really, as they are probably all going to be different.

One of the screens is the image of me when I was a harem girl, for a fancy dress party in Nigeria.  I started off with a collage of figures from old family photos, then decided it would be useful to be able to print some of the images over other ones – hence the screens.            

So, the studio was quite well-organised when I began……not any more !

I did have a good start to the week though –  steadily organising boxes and cupboards, labelling everything as I went along . Quite exciting what you come across, some stuff I havent seen for 6 months and more.

I shall endeavour to have a good selection of new work for the Palace Art Fair, in October. It seems an age away but is only  about eight or nine weeks.

I have also signed up to do the Red Cross Christmas Fair at Kensington Town Hall – so at last a possible outlet for some new jewellery and cards.

Better get busy.

Parallaxed !

July 11, 2011

So, end of a fairly long few days. Although it wasnt a requirement I did end up sitting at the Parallax Art Fair for 3 days and 2 evenings  in the end. Sunday was very quiet indeed, but super chatty fellow exhibitors nearby helped pass the time.   It was great to be showing some work in such a central location, and I was really pleased to have been given one of the best spaces, in the front window of the gallery !

Next event on the horizon is the Cork Street Open , August 4th-12th – my etching ‘Open Door’ has been shortlisted, so hopefully will be hung. I had 2 in last year also, and actually sold one.
