Our brief Wolf at the Door pop-up has come and gone. One weekend of gales and driving rain through which a good number of friends, neighbours and past visitors and buyers came to support us and buy Christmas presents.
Our jeweller friends Campoli&Nelson were there, together with artists Judith Berrill, Claire Fearon and Ian Williams. There were also books, felt jewellery, ceramics and the most sensational cakes and chocolate panforte from Siobhan of Brighton Table.
And my own work of course. I hung it differently from usual, in groups according to colour and theme. I had one whole section on the stairs devoted to cosmology and the night sky.
It’s easier for the eye to see pictures properly if they are a coherent group or have common elements. I know from my own experience that, however exciting unexpected juxtapositions may be, I quickly tire when I go to exhibitions which rely on this buzz.
I had a green section too…
…and a winter corner.
I really enjoyed this way of doing things and it told me something about my own work – something to do about focus – I still need to work out exactly what!
