The Spiral: 2018
As a long standing member of Surrey Sculpture Society, I enjoy exhibiting in some lovely and varied venues across the South of England.
Landmark Art Centre in Teddington being one such venue, a converted Baroque church, the perfect place for a sculpture show.
I was asked to be Lead Artist for this exhibition, and was happy to officially open the show and talk about the significance of it.
As well as a showcase for original art, the weekend focused on Education, and was generously sponsored by CASSART, who also supplied all our students with art materials.
As the Educational Specialist, I did presentations and lead workshops for groups of GCSE and A Level students, as well as doing demonstrations for the general public.
Art can be a very solitary occupation and it is great to be able to share knowledge and ideas from time to time which always mutually inspire.
Landmark gave me the opportunity to exhibit a large installation showpiece called ‘Spiral’.
It was 7 metres high, comprising of 14 weld mesh figures spiralling upwards. Each figure was individually made, unique in form, and hung on a motor which turned very slowly around. It was the first time I had made a piece of kinetic art. Designed to be meditative, it worked perfectly in the space, causing everyone to pause quietly as they came across it.
