The first part of 2017 is being taken up by a residency at the New Art Gallery Walsall. I am working on alternative ways of displaying my work so it can be viewed as three dimensional. The residency will end on 10th March.
Jerwood Open Forest - Shortlist, 2016
In April I was selected as one of 5 shortlisted artists for Jerwood Open Forest 2016. For this second edition of Jerwood Open Forest, artists from across the UK were once more invited to submit bold, broad-thinking proposals that explore the potential of forests as a site for art. The initiative contributes to a national conversation about how contemporary visual artists engage with the environment today, and debates around critical practice and art in the public realm.
