I have been leaving small paintings in public places. The paintings, which are mounted on fences, are depictions of the view from the spot in which the viewer is standing, i.e. the view through the fence.

The project is a comment on how difficult it is for artists to get work seen by the public. But more than this, it is an effort to engage the passer by and encourage them to stop for a while, puzzle over what they have seen and hopefully walk away with a smile on their face.

The paintings are fully waterproofed in case you were concerned.




Displacement

I have been collecting and painting stones for many years. This project involves collecting stones from their various environments, painting them gold and placing/throwing them into a different environment. Displacing an object like this is loaded with association.

The project was partly inspired by the book Gold by Dan Rhodes which is a brilliantly backhanded compliment to contemporary art.

Each stone is marked with a number so finders can trace it to this blog. It is hoped that some of the stones will be found away from where they were thrown due to tides or flooding. Some stones will never be found. Can you find one?

‘Take a Look Around You’




I have been away from my work and The Last gallery for the last year taking a well needed sabbatical. I am looking forward to taking part in a residency in Finland in April and am currently busy filling out funding applications and producing work here at The Last Gallery.

So I am starting 2015 with a couple of new light-hearted projects to get me back into the swing of things.

Project number 1

                                               ‘Take a Look Around You’
