In June I was part of a Residency at Brisons Veor
which enabled me to spend a week
experiencing the beautiful wildflowers
the intriguing coastline and changing weathers
with artist Susan Williams MRBS,
photographers Gareth Williams
and Andrew Rushton
We walked separately
or as a quartet
We brought our own works in
progress to continue or pursue.
We enjoyed convivial company
and I had the most intense period
of making and installing work.
Just a week, but what a week.
I continued to work on the pre-felts made during the course with Jeannette Appleton and developed a piece inspired by the Oblique Strategies cards by Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt. I had no definite plan other than to let my surrounding sing to me and my experiences guide me, I was swept along by a tremendous energy drawn both from my surroundings and my companions.
It was a jewel-like and infinitely precious.
An album of inspirations and experiments which informed the work can be found here.
