Every year, I always seem to do the same thing , I am doing a bit of planning of the year usually in end December/early January but for some reasons. this year took a bit longer.
It is thinking time!
End of December and early January, I like to do my planning for the year. this year in particular, I am concentrating on getting a business plan a bit better, planning marketing , exhibitions ( as much as I can so far), what work I will need to do to make sure i get those exhibition right.
This year I am also doing open studios with West-berkshire and part of it, there is an exhibtion in Arlington center. The theme fo rthat this year is "afterwords" which will be challenge for me and I am really tempted to do a sculpture which has nothing to do with animals for once. So i have ben thinking about this for a while, sketching ideas and thinking again. I have few ideas but will see...
I have been thinking, looking through my last yea sketch book, sketching ideas, and thinking again! looks like I am doing a fair amount of work in my head at the moment!:) i have some good idea and they start to materialize slowly...time to start working on them. The idea that i have this year are an extension of what i have been working on so far, the directions are still changing a bit but the fundamental of the work stay the same.
I have few new works at the moment and I am just waiting to do the moulds! Another work is also being made so you will know more about it very soon.
This year I have also the challenge to finish some of my old work! I have few pieces unfinished, a more traditional work but it will be interesting to see how they benefit from my latest research.
A project of experimentations leading to an exciting exhibition of cutting edge equestrian art.
The purpose of this project is to gather a group of leading equestrian artist working in different style sharing ideas, creating a common story of experimentation. Those artists will be challenged to present new visions and new fresh approach to equestrian art over a year. So far, some incredible artists will participate to the project:
We will also start a blog that will run for the duration of the project with the stories, the progress, ideas and sketches. Artists will meet up few times during the project.The project will be online for a year via a blog with the final exhibition (Location TBD) where sculptures, paintings and sketches will be displayed.
