‘Place, Face, Space’ was the recent exhibition held at Bath Artists’ Studios Gallery during our open studios event 21st – 23rd September. It was a group exhibition showcasing work produce by studio holders.
My contribution included screen printed wooden books and bound paper sculptures.
The exhibition preparation is well under way and the pieces have arrived in Bath from New York so we are pleased to have them in the country. We have set up a website for the project atwww.foldingcosmosbath.wordpress.com
Our flyers have also arrived; we have met some lovely people on our journey distributing them so far…..
Here are some photos of the Folding Cosmos exhibition I am organising to bring to Bath from Japan. The exhibition will launch on the 27th April and run until the 5th May 2012. During this time there will be the opportunity to attend Japanese tea ceremonies and contribute to our peace tree with origami and messages. I will exhibit textile and book pieces along side the established Japanese exhibition which I will develop in response to a period of research based on the tea ceremony, traditional Japanese dress and symbolism in design. I have started this research and am finding fascinating, can’t wait to start developing the work!
I currently have the pleasure of working with Sarah Kelly from Saloukee http://www.saloukee.com/. I have been an admirer of Sarah’s work for a couple of years now and was flattered when she asked me to come up with a design and make project for her new book. The book is not due out until the end of next year (Nov 2011) but Sarah is busily pulling it all together, it’s very exciting.
Sarah and photographer Gemma Dewson http://www.gemmadewson.com/ came to my studio on Saturday to do the photo shoot for my chapter of the book, we had a great day, I can’t wait to see the results!
