Today I had the delightful opportunity to meet Beverley Thornley in person for the first time. I love it when a social media contact becomes a real world one, and Beverley with her fascination with chalk and concrete and traceability makes beautiful work which comes straight out of the earth .
We had lovely conversations around traceability, memory, and also about our shared interest in pigments, and her very site specific work, and how my work even when site specific is only in as much as it related to the global history of trade.
She has some projects she is thinking setting up so watch this space....
And sweetly she is the second artist to visit my very small studio space and say “I am impressed you manage to produce what you do from here...."
In addition I am delighted to announce that I am to be represented by Luminaire Arts.
And delighted that Why Not Art are at the Ideal Home show this week with a catalogue of artists including me.
Spring really is in the air with all these potential new beginings.
