Blink of Life

My piece for the Alderly Hey Children’s Hospital Exhibition and charity auction on friday the 17th of october to help raise vital funds for one of Europe’s biggest and busiest children’s hospital. The theme of the exhibition is the idea of centenary, comparing past and future. I came up with a diffrent concept originally but decided this would be a better suited for what we are trying to raise money for.

Trapped

First proper drawing i have done in about 3 months, but back at it again. I used charcoal, i want to use graphite again but just love how much depth and black you get from charcoal it excites me haha. Plus no horrible shining back in your face when you’ve spent hours working on something. I’d probably use graphite if i wanted something more realistic with more detail. Tried to play around with negative double exposure think ill be trying out some more stuff like this, feels like the right direction. I decided to title it “Trapped”.

Here is the time-lapse video, tried out a new camera stand that lets me film directly above without messing about, and having tripods on crazy angles.

World of Glass Open Art 2014

I have two pieces in the Godfrey Pilkington Art gallery, St. Helens in partnership with the World of Glass Museum. The exhibition is open till 5th of september and entry is free. Both pieces are available for purchase through the gallery. It’s the first time i have ever had something on display in a gallery so it was interesting and fun to see people talking about by work as they was walking past. If you’re in the area stop by and have a look at all the stuff on display and help support the gallery. (NW England)
