More news, June and July….

I am working hard in my studio with oil and watercolour, preparing for a show at Arusha Gallery, Dundas Street, in Edinburgh opening early August. I will be going up there to give a talk on August 24th.

I’m also excited about going to run a stall at A Fête Worse than Death in London on July 19th. I’ll be running a stall called I CAN DRAW YOUR DREAM and I’ll be asking people to tell me their dreams, which I’ll do my best to respond to with either drawing, monotype, or drawing through carbon paper. I’ll have colour available too and maybe respond with that.

I’ll also be teaching in St. Ives (St. Ives School of Painting) a course I’m calling Dreamscapes and Memories (July 8 – 11th), where students will use various drawing techniques to explore and reveal their important life experiences and incorporate them into their creative language.

I am very pleased indeed to be able to say that Susan Daniel McElroy(until recently curator at Tate St. Ives) has agreed to work with me to help me forge a stronger path with my work. I am going to be making much larger works in the very near future.

What I am doing, June… July

I am frantically busy trying to cram as many minutes a day as I can into one of my studios. In Newlyn, at Trewarveneth, I keep a large jug of garden flowers which give me a lovely welcome each day when I arrive. The room is gradually filing up with works, many of them not yet complete. I am working with watercolours and with oils. The date of my show in Edinburgh has been brought forward, to coincide with the Edinburgh Festival, and I  need many finished new works for the show. At home I am working on smaller watercolour pieces, many of them re-works of pieces which were not finished ( even though I once thought they were!… I usually have to push works so far before they are really complete).

I am working with the images of the umbilicus, the pre-born, the wild, psychic antennae,  the matrixial, the hovering at the borders of known and not-known.

I’ve also been invited to be part of a show at Bridport Arts centre early next year, called The Theatre of the Soul.

Next month I’m going to be working with Alice Herrick in London at an Art Fete. I’ve proposed a stall called  ‘I CAN DRAW YOUR DREAM’.

Before that I’ll be teaching two workshops – one at St. Ives School of Painting, and the other at Cornwall College.

Some pictures of Italy

It’s just two weeks since we returned from Italy, and the paradise on earth that is Castelluccio in Norcia.

I still can’t read my notes, made when being quiet in the beautiful immensity which is the Piano Grande.

The ribs of Monte Vettore still snow-capped
