New Adventures in Wax

A new body of work started to appear this weekend following a few influences that have been bubbling away for the past few weeks. Firstly I have been delivering a number of weekly mark-making session as part of this project which has got me playing with lots of materials I have overlooked for some time. And secondly I bought a new set of water soluble wax crayons from the nice folks at my local art supplies shop. There is something really nice about the friction and resistance felt when using a wax crayon on paper.

Bird Box Bonanza

This week I started work on a fantastic new project designing sculptural bird boxes in collaboration with pupils at ten Kirklees schools (inspired by this project). So far I have had the pleasure of working with 88 children and three teachers, working through a variety of ideas and approaches in the creating of wildlife themed characters which will form the basis of the Bird Box designs. The boxes will be exhibited as part of this years Festival of Light in Huddersfield - watch this space for further updates…

Ancient Waters - Holmfirth Arts Festival

I had a fantastic night a couple of weeks ago performing a commissioned piece 'Anicient Waters' as part of Holmfirth Arts Festival in collaboration with Arun Ghosh and his band, and my partner in crime Benjamin Rabe (collectively we are Bunny and the Beardman).
