It has been a while since I posted on this blog as my Instagram and Facebook pages are so much easier to update – instantly and directly from my iPhone, whereas here I have to find the time to sit in my office at my computer (there must be a WordPress App so I could avoid this, better look into that)
So over the las two years (apart from running Essex Art and Sculpture Classes) I have been studying for an MA in Sculptural Practice at the Minories Galleries in Colchester and very close now to the final exhibition Being There.
The exhibition includes four of us and we are sadly the final MA Sculptural Practice cohort at the Minories.
My work, Inside Out – Representations of the self, is a sculptural path of self criticism. The work is a culmination of academic research, helped by an internship at the internationally renowned Henry Moore Institute Leeds, and sculptural practice. I explore representations of the self through a process of making, destroying and repairing as a metaphorical journey of trauma and healing – the scars of life – a way of trying to make sense of what it is to be human.
I do hope some of you can visit the exhibitions, please click on links below for details of dates, times and previews etc
