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.

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 –

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. Read More

Demonstration Videos with Double Elephant

A major event in 2012 was the creation of some demonstration videos with Double Elephant Print Workshop.

You can see them all HERE!

I did the demonstration for the Collagraph video. It took a WHOLE DAY! In true Blue Peter style I had prepared my project at various stages in its development so that I didn’t have to waste time waiting for paint to dry.

Take a LOOK

You can see a proof being pulled from the finished plate in the video. And here is one of the finished prints I made shortly after – when I had time to fuss about colours and add mono print plant material too.

Spring Hedgerow III

To go with the Collagraph video is another short one of “Top Tops”.

Do take time to look at my colleagues videos for drypoint, mono print and relief print too.
