One Million Points of Light

I’ve just revisited this interesting project started by renowned holographic artist Andy Pepper in 2006 – and it’s still there to see. Have a look; artists in over 120 countries ‘lit up’ blocks, singly or in a pattern, on a grid. The number of visits to each block was counted. I joined it in 2007 or thereabouts and, at random I confess, was featured as artist of the month in July 2008:

The piece used to illustrate it was my section of an Exquisite Corpse. This was made of recycled materials and put together as a whole with two other artists, John Lincoln and Stuart Goodacre as the centrepiece for a joint exhibition. The Torso has hung on my walls since; I’ve not tried to sell it as I have a sentimental attachment to the old geezer.

However, times move on, it’s good to move things on and out and create new mental space. The Torso (which has a beating heart – honestly!) has been on show with Nicholas Bowlby and in the course of things will probably pass out of my life. So here is a picture of the whole piece again:

and me putting it together:

I have several new large pieces nearly finished – not quite ready to photograph yet. The weather has been excellent for making and drying paper!

In the Barn at Sussex Prairies

There is going to be an event before long to publicise this exhibition of my botanical art and the work of other artists and sculptors placed all round the lovely Sussex Prairies. I have an enormous space to myself, the only snag being that people don’t all realise the existence of the attractive newly converted barn, the Garden Room.

Here are a few more snapshots:
