This new piece says it all – I visited (and loved) Dungeness two years ago, but I’ve only just got round to doing this souvenir of that marvellous, strange, atmospheric place.
Dungeness was done for my recent exhibition at Pelham House in Lewes – as part of the town’s Open Studio scheme, Artwave – and our two-person show continued into October. It featured work made with reclaimed materials and/or on themes related to global warming and the environment.
Since we moved just over a year ago I have lurched from one deadline to the next without finding enough time to make new work or indeed to research new exhibition possibilities. So no formal Christmas Open House this year, just an attempt to catch up with myself: ‘reculer pour mieux sauter’, as the French say!
