With just over a month to go until the Wobudong exhibition in Manchester, I now need to start taking some decisions about how to install my work. Fortunately I am able to use the space above my studio and yesterday afternoon I got some really useful feedback as part of a Whistable Satellite crit. Now that the work has come away from the wall, so many possibilities have opened up as to where it can go. I am very excited.
In the evening went to the opening at Turner Contemporary of the new Helen Frankenthaler exhibition and had a brilliant time. The paintings were amazing. I loved the non-drippy, flowing thin paint on raw canvas, the way the oil seeped out through the canvas, the gorgeous colours and the empty spaces.
