Future Projects

 

Cloisters Exhibition

I have arranged an exhibition of my work in October at Cloisters, a Barristers Chambers.

They hold regular art exhibitions there and as well as the Private View, they have a regular stream of lawyers and clients through their building who will see my work.

Art of Caring

I exhibited in this exhibition last year. I have two prints that will be on display later this year.

Sustainability

 

In order to make my art practice sustainable I implement the following strategies:

I re-use canvases wherever possible, only keeping paintings I am really happy with. I like the practice of painting on top of other images as I feel like the layers of work subconciously inform my new painting, like layers of history.

I recycle paper and any other recyclable materials I use.

I work with found objects to keep costs down in my practice, as well as the fact that I love the history and narrative bound up in old collected things.

I try to sell work to make myself self sufficient, and to fund my art expenses.

To be a sustainable artist I must rely on the following:

Community, I must be connected to a network or community of artists and work collaboratively.

My skills as an artist.

Must have work time and down time.

I must have a mission statement or purpose for producing my work.

Planning, this makes all work that is produced proactive.

These stratagies are discussed in Andrew Simonet's Making your Life as an Artist
