Gallery refresh

gallery wall

I’ve spent the day refreshing my wall in the gallery. I’ve temporarily removed some of the work in progress (with the explanation cards) and replaced them with open edition prints that I hope will appeal as Christmas presents. Some are newly printed from the archive, some were printed up and in the browser in my workspace and others are reprints of works that have sold previously. As we come out of lockdown it’s hard to know what visitor numbers will be like but best be prepared!

Fiddlesticks

fiddlesticks

These random compositions were formed by repeatedly throwing down six offcuts of card. I was reminded of a family game I played as a child where you had to extract individual wooden sticks from a pile of sticks without moving any of the others. Anyway, that aside, I do like a bit of serendipity and quite happily spent 20 minutes or so shooting about 30 of these. Then, in the spirit of randomness, screen grabbed these 16 from the grid view in Lightroom to form a collective composition.
