“And yet it moves” Galileo Galilei- the early 17th century astronomer quote has been taken as a starting point for discussions, collaborations, exhibitions and various events to celebrate the creativity, experiment, the power of the open mind and the importance of questioning, thinking, being brave and having opinion.
The 2nd part of the exchange between artist from South East England with artists from South east of Italy will take place between 12.07 and 26.07. 2015.
With the musical, theatre events,and workshops, comes a large exhibition which will happen at St.Mery in the Castle, and at the Robertson street, Hastings.
Being one of the artists in residence I am looking forward to the project to start next week.
The small size mixed media drawings have been gradually finding their space in my practice. A few of them assembled themselves into the Day and Night series and were on display at the Keep, Reading, during the Open Studios OHOS members’ annual exhibition -” Desire lines”, May, 2015.The form of an artist’s book used to trace the artist’s working process may miss the infinity. The expressive drawing, with casual, easy going character of a note, allow the spontaneous use of any material -paper, cardboard, discarded drawing, old vinyls,found images.
Coloured paper and found images collage with acrylic and oil finish, 96/96 cm, exhibited at the Fleet Gallery,St.Leonards-on -sea, E. Sussex, May-April, 2015. The multi-layered work on stretched canvas was on display at Patrick’s gallery for a month, as part of my one-man show there.
With great thanks to the host for the amazing time and the opportunity.
