Talking to Artists

I have now finished the section of the project where I talked to four different artists about their views on the use of Subject in a creative practice. So thanks to Jill Laudet, Bede Robinson, Jo Whittle and David Orme for there help and support.

Artist Interviews

I have managed to interview two of my planned four artists and hope to meet up with the third next week. It is starting to look a bit like I might be able to get all the things that I had planned done. I just need to plan two trips to places to explore the idea of collecting specific material and then do some work before producing my second Zine of work produced, by the end of this summer.

Paper Work

Not an Exhibition Catalogue

Last year I produced a zine booklet of a set of paper drawings that started from looking a Hound tooth Jacquard knitting pattern. You can see a copy of the zine here.
