New Public Artwork

Last week I finished a new public artwork which can be seen on Fitwilliam Street in Sheffield.

It was commissioned by MAF Properties for their new student flats accommodation. It is a design etched onto the glass balustrade of the first floor and can be seen from the street.

The design is abstract and based on a composition of curved arcs which cross and intersect while flowing across the nine glass panels.

New commission

I have been commissioned to produce a design for an art work for a new building in Sheffield.

A line between

A line Between is a video produced as part of my Yorkshire Artspace Micro Grant for the Castlegate Festival. The video is an animated slide show made out of photographic images taken during a walk around the area.

My intention was to explore the area and collect images. I was trying to get a feel for the area, get to know it better and decide how I would use the architecture of the Castlegate quarter to produce one of my digital drawings.

Microgrant from YA

I am pleased to announce that I have been offered a Microgrant from YA Yorkshire ArtSpace in Sheffield.

The grant is for me to develop new drawings using the Castlegate area of Sheffield as subject and to explore new processes. Resulting work will published in an exhibition at their Exchange Place studios, located in Castlegate.

There are a number of different elements to the work that I will be carrying out. You can follow the progress of this work in a blog.

A part of the grants work will include a call out for people to submit images for me to use in a drawing, information about taking part in this is posted here.

Get Involved at Nottingham Contemporary

From November last year until February 2014  I was working with Nottingham Contemporary’s Get Involved project. With the help of the young people and Sian and Alice I was commissioned by the group to produce an animation to be used as part of an installation for their Collabor-8 night held at the Gallery.
