Wallpaper at the Royal Shakespeare Company

November 7, 2015

wallpaper at RSC My Peter Pan wallpaper is hanging in the RSC Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon alongside their current exhibition – Make Believe: The Art Of Neverland. I really hope to get a chance to visit this exploration of artists’ interpretations of Peter Pan. It includes work by Paula Rego, Tom Gallant, Kerry Miller, Béatrice Coron and Andrea Dezsö as well as stage and set designs from the RSC show.

I also screenprinted some of the design onto fabric to create colourful cushions in the family activities area of the RSC.

bauble installation at Latitude Festival

July 17, 2012

I’ve had quite a lot of tweets/emails/facebook comments over the past few days in response to the seemingly plagiarised installation at Latitude this weekend which is identical to my work at Kensington Palace last July.

… However, it appears that Kensington Palace themselves have simply replicated the idea at Latitude – with another theme and presumably another artist. They are quite entitled to do this. Ownership of artwork and an idea when it’s created by a commissioning body and an artist together can be vague. I worked on the project together with the Outreach & Community Involvement Officer at Historic Royal Palaces.

It does present interesting questions though for artists when you work on interactive installations and don’t own the concept or the final artwork. Anyway I like Latitude and I’m pleased that all those juicy red baubles aren’t just going dusty in a palace attic.

Exhibition at The Brook Gallery

March 21, 2012

My solo exhibition at The Brook Gallery in Budleigh Salterton has now finished. A big thanks to Angela and everyone at the gallery as well as all the visitors who came along. I’m really pleased to have sold so many prints – this means I can start a new body of work next month!

I’m looking forward to see the work of printmakers Eileen Cooper and Mila Furstova as part of the gallery’s Women In Art show.

Here are a couple of press cuttings from the exhibition…

Sunken Garden Secrets Installation at Kensington Palace

August 3, 2011

here are photos of the Kensington Palace installation of secrets (of former inhabitants and visitors alike!) I liked how the red baubles suspended from the verdant pergolas were like strange berries or fruits filled with all kinds of unusual secrets offered by the public…

 

Sunken Garden Secrets at Kensington Palace

July 17, 2011

I’ve just finished working on my latest project which is an interactive installation in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace.

As part of the inTRANSIT festival of Kensington and Chelsea, I’ve created a series of lasercut silhouettes featuring the secrets of former inhabitants of the palace (from the ratcatcher and Peter the wild boy to various princesses and princes). The public are invited to go along and add their own secrets between 22 – 31 July.

While working in Oxfordshire over the past few weeks I’ve been visiting Blenheim Palace to get an idea of Sarah Churchill, Duchess of Marlborough and to see the statue of Queen Anne commissioned by the Duchess.  This inspired the bauble depicting ‘Secret Regrets’ which suggests the remorse the two inseparable friends may have felt after their friendship dramatically fell apart in 1711.

Scrooge poster for the flicker club

December 28, 2010

This is my poster design for the flicker club’s screening of Scrooge. I was sad to have missed the film (due to all the Devon snow) and Tom Hollander reading the first chapter of Dickens’ essential Christmas tale – but I’m looking forward to more flicker club events in 2011.
