Exhibition photos – A Quiet Obsession

On Sat we had a ‘meet the artist’ event with tea and homemade cake.  It was lovely to have the time to talk with people about the work and to see it again.    Below are some photos of the exhibition – they don’t do the exhibition justice – it has proved hard to get photos that capture the experience you have of being in the space and walking through the three different spaces.

The Art of Embodied Thinking

Three copies of my Artist book – now finished.  It has been a time consuming process but I am pleased with the result and will be showing the book at my exhibition in Glasgow.

Photographing the exhibition

Knowing I would be busy with setting up and talking with people at the opening of my exhibition I asked my nephew to be my exhibition photographer.   I am looking forwards to seeing the images and time lapse film he took of the opening.

Setting up A Quiet Obsession

Setting up the exhibition was tiring and at times stressful.  Lots of attention to detail, accurate measuring, decision making and discussions.  The end result though was good, Anne and my work sat well together and I was pleased with how we had curated it – the way the screens had been placed in the space allowed people to walk around and into spaces and see the work from different and changing perspectives.  I was especially pleased how the light from the large windows highlighted the textures and the  matt wax of the tree portraits against the black background.  It really enhanced the sense of almost moonlight ghostliness of the trees.
