Some Q&A for a Secondary School student in Barbados

Every now and then people from various parts of the world get in touch to ask q few questions about my artwork or with technical questions. I do my best to answer – even though writing really isn’t my thing. Oddly – this month has been little crazy with questions every couple of days. So when a student from Barbados asked me nicely is I could answer some questions for a school based assignment. I said that seeing as she asked so nicely, I would. I was a little taken aback to get 14 quite chalenging questions – but in answering them the exercise was helpful in making me think.

Freshly printed Hedgebank. Collagraph mono print. Lynn Bailey-001

Working Process 2

Making the Devon Hedge Bank prints.

My studies of Devon hedgerows started in 2011. The big launch for this work was an exhibition I curated at Red Earth gallery in Bickleigh to coincide with Devon Hedge Week.

On my old website I had a “Work in Progress” gallery. So that this content can still be available I am reposting some of sequenses of photographs that showed my working process here – as rather “old News”.

Here I am offering glimpses of work in progress for 30,000 miles – Art exhibition.

Plymouth Pear in progress

Working Process

My old website had a page in the “galleries” section where I would show case some of my work in progress. Rather than having this under “portfolios” in this website, my intention it to have irregular looks at my work in progress in order to give glimpses of my working process.

So that my previous posts about my work in process are not lost and will remain searchable on this website, I’m posting them here as rather ‘old news’.

Here’s the first one I posted a while ago –

Eliments for Cirl Bunting. Lynn Bailey

Cirl Bunting – mini project

The Devon Guild of Craftsmen’s Summer Show for 2015 had the theme “Celebrations” to mark 60 years of the organisation – a landmark birthday. Members were invited to use the title Celebrate to articulate the notions of festivity and reflection that such milestones bring. I wanted to produce some work specifically for this exhibition while creating something in keeping with my own body of work about Devon ecosystems, hedgerows etc. (more…)

Urban Bees: Working Together 3.

Studies for Urban Bees: Working Together

The third Devon Guild member taking part in this project I would like to introduce you to is Helen Edwards. Based in South Devon, Helen uses her skills in ceramics, metals and textiles to construct intricate and unique Mixed Media artwork with visual and tactile appeal. Photography, printing and etching, stitching, weaving and dyeing are some of the many processes Helen uses to give her work its characteristic texture, pattern and colour. (more…)
