After eight months of total crap I have turned a corner; the corner. A new beginning. Spent Saturday at Waterperry gardens in Oxfordshire at the Art in Action event. As usual the ceramics were my favourite - we bought several beautiful, tiny porcelain dishes, and just the smell of wet clay made me want to get my hands dirty again. There is a sack waiting in the back porch and two small boys who are also itching to get their fingers into it, and the summer holidays have arrived with blue skies and sunshine! Best in show though was Roanna Wells. I am not a great fan of textiles, there is too much homespun dross, but some things shine out like Roanna's conceptual pieces executed, we watched her, with painstaking concentration. They really have to be seen to be appreciated, quite wondrous.
Interpersonal Spatial Arrangements
Interpersonal Spatial Arrangements is an ongoing series of works looking at social situations that bring people together for a common cause.
By abstracting the individuals, focus is given to the spontaneous emerging patterns and self organisation of the crowds.
