Spent a few hours in The Studio.
These cogs were a present from a friend, who was unaware, I am working ( just beginning ) towards an exhibition in January. It is site specific. The Verdant Works, a jute mill museum, so lots of machinery. Not at all sure how I will use them, for now I am printing and taking rubbings.
Heard a talk by Bridgit Collins, describing her ideas and work practise. Really interesting. Cure for a creative block. Tidy your studio, rearrange things, read a poem, go a walk and just do something. We all know this but good to be reminded.
Seagull has been given another outing. Submitted him into the Meffan Gallery Christmas Exhibition. This exhibition attracts entries from across Scotland so fingers and toes crossed he gets in. Always a bit nervous when my work is being juried, never gets any easier. Fear of failure deep rooted.
Play with a purpose, thinking about layers. Machinery, Fabric, Womens Lives, Times Past.
Tracing paper on top of printed cartridge.
No sign of the owners on my walk today. A jolt of colour among the bronze, red and yellow leaves.
Please look in next week, I may have thought of more ideas to use the cogs.
