Venice!

I am about to leave to begin my journey to Venice, travelling via Bournemouth and the Russell Cotes Museum, then London where I’ll see Alice Herrick and Samantha Sweeting at Sam’s show at the Herrick Gallery. I am also going to check out the space at the Art Pavilion in Tower Hamlets. Venice on Tuesday!

May 2013, thinking about new work on the theme of Flight, being winged, aerial…..

The person hidden in the wing. The open wing, expansive wing. You hide between the feathers. You hide as breath, as shivering rustle of white resistance, just giving to the touch of my lips, I feel you all around me, your whiteness I see through my closed eyes. There was a day when I met you, when you first came to me, introduced yourself to me, and I could smell your feathers, feeling them all around me with their white slippery sleekness.

The Feathered and the Unfeathered.

Freedom from Torture, West Cornwall Supporters Group news – drawing workshop during Golowan

I recently became involved with this charity and I wanted to contribute something towards it.  I feel that raising awareness through creativity is a dynamic, productive and positive way of approaching this area of challenging, confusing, often hidden, shadowy, and shocking human activity.

I will be leading a workshop on drawing and working creatively with themes implied around the theme of torture.

Title of event: Drawing the Line: Freedom from Torture. How can we respond to human cruelty and injustice through creativity?

 Details of the event:  In aid of ‘Freedom from Torture’,  Kate Walters will lead a workshop exploring a number of themes including how the body stores our life experiences, dreams, nightmares, fairy tales, archetypal imagery and how we feel/can respond to  the human-instigated torture towards others which is going on in the world. We will aim to focus on empathy and the heart-mind as a way to safely explore these themes.

 

Participants will work with drawings, writing, and colour in a supportive and sensitive environment.

 Please bring drawing supports (e.g. paper, board) and your preferred materials.

 Age limit: participants must be 17 or over
