I am delighted to announce that I have been awarded a professional development bursary by a-n artists’ newsletter.
I will be blogging my progress regularly as I go along: Permanence vs Ephemerality
Extract from my proposal:
As an artist working with paper and loving its fragility, there are times when I would like to explore ways of making the work more permanent, while retaining the intrinsic qualities of paper. I was talking to sculptor Anthony Heywood recently about working with paper and we discussed the issues of presentation, protection and conservation, and how difficult it is.
I am grateful to a-n for the opportunity and to Anthony Heywood for the reference. I will be working with Meltdowns in Ramsgate, who I would also like to thank for their offer of in-kind support.
