Trans-States & Books of Blood…proposal success!

Yesterday I heard from the University of Northampton who will be hosting a conference called Trans-States in September. The conference is about exploring ways the Arts can help us to explore different areas of consciousness. My proposal to give a talk/performance about my work has been accepted…I am delighted! I will be talking about my ‘hollow bone process’.

Further good news: I recently heard from The University of Hertfordshire which will be curating and organising a project called BOOKS OF BLOOD: A CROSS-DISCIPLINARY INVESTIGATION INTO BLOOD AS REPRESENTATION, SYMBOL, AND TEXT IN MODERN CULTURE
All humans ‘are books of blood—wherever you open us, we’re red’ (Clive Barker). If our bodies are books of blood, then they can be read…

….. My proposal has been accepted for this project too, and I will be showing work and contributing to events and a publication. I am so thrilled! It is hoped that the project will travel from Ireland to London.

a-n Travel Bursary

I have been awarded a generous Travel Bursary from a-n to enable me to explore the Outer Hebrides to enable me to broaden and strengthen the connections I made on Iona during the Winter of 2015/16. I feel very grateful and excited about this opportunity.

I will be travelling to Sutherland, Orkney (including Papa Stronsay), Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis, Harris, North Uist, Benbecula, South Uist, Eriskay and Barra. I’m also hoping to get to Tiree. I’ll be visiting Arts Centres and hoping to meet their staff. I’ll  be making drawings and notes and paintings in my mobile studio with Pip Seymour paints, monotype equipment and several sketch and note books. These notes and drawings will be shown for the first time in a show I’ll be having in the Little Picture room at Newlyn Art Gallery opening November 11th 2016.

A bit later in the year I will also visit Tobermory on Mull to visit Comar, and I’ll return to Iona to teach a workshop and spend some time working on the Croft at Lagandorain.
