Working/ showing in France

The Residency at the Maison de Gravure has meant that I have been hard at work for the last 2 months on and off , talking about my work and making it alongside all the other Artists that use the Atellier, and today I was asked to show in The Sud Estamp exhibition here in Montpellier to be The Artist to show at the Maison De Graveur. That was a great moment for me to be finally accepted and appreciated here.  Also to be written about in French ! thank god  I dont have to do the translations and i’ll have something written by a French speaker.

Another Gallery in Aubusson the Gallerie Des Marches has also offered me a show next month – so it looks like things are finally changing for me here. Now I have the problem of who will come to the private view ! and my opening speeches – which is the norm here , everyone has to give an introductory talk ,  often after the mayor or some other local Art patron … not all cut and dried then yet.

Songs of Nature Prints Jan / Feb 2016

Etchings with braille and florescent card.

_MG_1477 _MG_1510 2 _MG_1752 _MG_1493

Waterfalls from old postcards were used as a theme -of time and forceful invisibility. The inverse braille which are lines from Laurie Anderson songs acts as a kind of hidden code incorporated into the landscapes, sometimes referring to other spaces and sometimes descriptional but readable.

Je me concentre sur les chutes d’eau comme un thème de temps et d’invisibilité forte beaucoup seront des eaux-fortes doubles où je déplacer les plaques comme je l’impression pour augmenter ce sens de l’invisibilité. Presque sur le bord de la reconnaissance.

Le braille agit comme une sorte de code caché incorporé dans les paysages, se référant parfois à d’autres espaces et parfois descriptifs. Ils ont mots qui bien des  chansons de Laurie Anderson ( Artiste American )

No Mans Land – woodcut on Kozo paper 2015.  300cm x 260 cm

Is a work done using the style of traditional Japanese woodcut techniques, Hokusai’s references with the sea and Tsunami were at the forefront of my mind when making this piece. I wanted to make something that floated literally, the paper is so light it moves as you walk past the woodcut, and architecturally endless. The ideaology behind this work : the oceans near escape from the digitalisation of landscapes and history.

No Mans Land est un travail fait en utilisant le style des techniques japonaises traditionnelles de gravure sur bois, des références d’Hokusai avec la mer et Tsunami étaient à l’avant-garde de mon esprit en faisant cette pièce. Je voulais faire quelque chose qui flottait littéralement, le papier est si léger qu’il se déplace que vous passez devant le travail, et architecturale sans fin. L’idéologie derrière ce travail: les océans près d’échapper à la numérisation des paysages et de l’histoire.

Interrupted Landscapes

Interrupted landscapes 2014/15

My preoccupation in working with landscape is always about the relationship between decay and growth /Disaster and re ordering Many of these drawings use real events of a catastroohic nature – observed at a distance through technology. Overlayering one event ontop of the other in the case of Cardbaord City below – where the boxes sent to help the survivors also form a cityscape themselves , then superimposed with detais of the debris from flooding . Drawings exploring the idea of interrupted landscapes on the brink of disaster.
