The second edition of IMPACT, ‘International Multi-disciplinary Printmaking: Artists, Concepts and Techniques’, is now live
And I’ve a paper in it
Delighted to be part of Small Print International 6
In response to the first Aerogramme this photo etching combines text, a honing pigeon and an aerogramme stamp.
The text, sending love from me to you, is a reflection and response to the Brexit vote and the unease within the UK with the undercurrent of anti-European, anti-Irish, and anti ‘other’ sentiment. The text is a hand of friendship, warmth and the human need for others.
The choice of stamp is reference to the aerogramme and how this airletter made the world a smaller place.
The honing pigeon is a reference to how people have needed to send messages and communicate with others for centuries.

space place practice is an artist research hub that spans the UK and internationally; we come together to create dialogues and to develop projects informed by a shared interest in notions of space, place and creative research. Our expanded practice is expressed in image word and action.
The Soapworks Exhibition, which is a collaborative project between Centre of Gravity and First Base, represents for our members an opportunity to respond to an extraordinary place and building. This collated publication has been supported through ACE funding and also The Art Research Centre, Bath Spa University.
Each member has a definitive creative practice and brings this to bear through encounters made; responding and activating their fieldwork through the spaces of imagination, architecture, histories, the real and the possible. The responses within this book raise questions around performing place, and consider an alternative model for dissemination of visual research generated through our experiences of the site.

Delighted to have become a member of Space Place Practice
Space Place Practice is a research collective, in which visual artists and multi-disciplinary researchers meet to engage with issues of space, place and site. Its dimensions are produced through interaction and critical discourse which act as points of departure for individual practice and collaborative projects.
Together we challenge and explore the interstices between embodied practice and theoretical enquiry where there is no hierarchical distinction between making, thinking, writing, and doing. Our expanded practice is expressed in image, word and action.
Regular forums are held in which we discuss and invigorate methods, theories and creative practice, building on established and more experimental notions of Space and Place, which we understand to be mutable, fragile and evasive. We consider the forum to be a creative space in which we draw inspiration from our conversations; we regularly invite other practitioners (as well as members) to share their work and also their enthusiasms in order to create other ways of making and being.
