My winter open studio was lots of fun! I had a decent crowd of enthusiastic supporters on the preview evening and a couple of handfuls over the other two days. The most exciting thing was that all four of the framed pieces from the Radio 3 series sold! These are the other two I framed.
I 'curated' the show by putting words near the 'exhibits' This is what I said about the radio 3 fused plastic collage and stitch pieces:
Although I love to draw in black and white, colour makes my heart sing. I feel that I solve problems while I am doing other things, so I began to wonder how what I listen to might influence what I am making. This series of fused plastic collages were made while actively listening to Radio Three. Radio 3 – I and II began with a Bella Bartok piece. What I found was that my process is longer than a piece of music, obviously, and in the end the fused plastic piece demands what it needs, so I begin to actively not listen. I would like to explore this further, perhaps looping music and actively listening throughout.
