My Installation in the Nelson Cathedral is complete, and can be viewed under Installations/exhibitions. Thanks to Fraser Heal, here’s a wee clip showing the making of; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nyu8nsKTa6k
Wow, its been almost 3 years since I posted here last, and things have not been slow! To quickly round up the more significant things that happened in this time (in reverse order) goes like this;
- An installation in the Contemplation Gallery of the Suter Art Gallery, Nelson. in August 2017. View Shaft uses 15km of white thread, and went like this; https://youtu.be/nyUgpOKbIsU
- Yellow Yellow exhibition at Parker Gallery, Nelson in June 2017, with an installation a little like;
- eternal summer at Bridge St Collective, February 2016, looked a little like this;
- Salt Gallery allowed me to exhibit with Ann Braunsteiner in June 2016 where I hang some rocks with String Theory
And a few more things in between that you can find under Exhibitions tab. I have slimmed down this website to only include my art/design practice things, as that is the direction that interests me. I still work in my other profession to pay for all this, but have plenty of work there so no need for further promotion!
AnnCT and I helped set up and manage an exhibition for Tim and Akiko Crowther. Akiko performed twice with the ‘big brush’, below is a video showing the second performance. Poster design by me also.
Well the wee house, Fray House, is complete apart from some final things, plan amendments, landscaping, and the laundry! The project was a success, I have received great feedback on it and gained new clients through it. I am currently building on the next few projects, some simultaneously, but nothing too serious yet.
Meanwhile the line drawings are cranking out, also planning a World Of Wearable art entry for 2015, and thinking about an exhibition coming up in April 2015 at the Red with AnnCT. Also two different installation interests/proposals in the mix! I feel pretty busy!
More soon, hopefully not so long between posts next time!
So 2013 is about done, it has been a busy year with two joint exhibitions and many other group shows with work exhibited. In June my partner and I traveled to Europe via Japan and had a fast visit to friends in Vienna, Geneva, Antibes and Berlin. The art we encountered was awe inspiring, inspirational and confirming. I had many ideas of new art objects and pieces to complete when arriving home, and I have mostly completed one, the Hundertwasser meditations, of which one iteration is pictured below.
I have been mostly busy with building on various projects, building being my profession for income. I am happy that this is swaying more toward design and build however, and at some stage more designing than building. I have a cool wee house to build in the new year that I will keep you posted on under a new tab ‘Architecture’, it is a very minimal design that I have produced to accommodate a clients budget and brief and yet will be funky and desirable.
I am currently working on getting this place up to speed, and also working on an upcoming exhibition at the Refinery Artspace in Nelson. The exhibition is with AnnCT Braunsteiner and Larisse Hall, and runs from May 6th to 26th 2013. I will upload the poster soon and any interested can come along to the opening, I will have a mixture of objects and acrylics for this show, and whatever happens in between. More later, Lee.
