It's a shame about the light reflection on the glass
Well, yesterday was the exhibition opening...:D
Unfortunately it wasn't organised well. It could have been so much more exciting and interesting but never mind. My work is now up in our town hall for a week and bidding is taking place all week. I really wonder if I'll get any bids.

This is my piece, I didn't get a straight on image as this suggests, I've edited this so it looks normal again as there was a window right behind my work, not smart placing on the head tutors part but can't do much about it now. Underneath is my little bit of writing that you see along with the work. I'll paste I here hehe.

Seven Plate Collagraph Print with added textiles

How often do we think about what's beneath us? Do we see it as a disposal centre, treasure hunt, a fuel resource or something to be marvelled at? Can you honestly say that you think about this on a daily basis? I sought to try and portray what was beneath us in the form of a collagraph print which was then worked upon with textiles. With each layer and process, I could contemplate it's reality, longevity and life of our world. If we are going to carry on, on this planet, we need to acknowledge the unseen, respect it for it's power over us, and what we'd do if we didn't have it any more. This is the land and earth that feeds us. We keep abusing our world with all sorts of destructive actions, it is not enough to stop at the surface. We dig deep, deep as we can go, to seek out resources or to bury our waste.
Sooner or later the world will reject all of this.
Sooner or later we need to stop.

I hope, that through trying to portray what lies beneath us, we can see that it isn't just a chunk of rock. It is beautiful. It is powerful. It's to be cherished, for it is far wiser and alive than we'll ever be in our tiny lifetimes.

It's our future in our hands.

They muffed up the placement of words on my little square, I specifically wanted the first set of bold writing where it was so it flowed, but again that was changed without my input. I wish they wouldn't do that. It may be my first exhibition but seriously, I know how I want things...

ANYWAY apart from that lol, I'm happy, exciting, apprehensive and just thankful that my work got chosen and the chance to exhibit. It's an amazing opportunity that I didn't think I would have and words can't express how I feel about the matter.
I'll be invigilating on Saturday which I think is the last day of the exhibit, so I'll get to see what's happening and how the week has gone ☺

So, until we meet again!
Toodle-loo ♥

I'm completely obsessed with this blossom tree.

It's been another beautiful day with lots of sunshine and not a cloud in the sky.
The smell of summer is in the air.
Every time I look at the blossom tree at the end of the garden, I smile warmly at nature.
Two more days until the opening night.

Can. Not. Wait.

I lost sight of my blog for a while.I don't know why. Perhaps there were other more important things happening? In some cases yes, in others, no.

I could have blogged...but I shant go on.
Flyer for the exhibition

SO! I had assessment, it went well enough, I passed and they liked my work. I didn't realise how much until last week when I got an email saying my final piece was going to be in the Your future exhibition! I mean wow...I can't even express how I feel about it other than a big ol' ball of OH MY GOSH. Hehe.
So preparations have gone along, writing an artist statement for the show, making sure my final piece is top notch, watching it being framed by our artists in residence. It looked amazing once they'd finished. I was so impressed. It's well worth the £25 for framing.
Whats more, at the show our work is availiable for auction in the dutch auction system. (I'm told this is where they write what they'll pay on a piece of paper and then put it in a box) Exciting no?

-Spazz out-

-Cough- excuse me....Anyway hehe I kind of want to sell it and kind of don't. It'd be nice to have a piece of my work up on the wall in our house. But alas, I really could do with the money and as I've been advised to price it at £120 minimum I can't really let that slide by. So, thats my reasons for wanting to get a really good photograph of it.
Our building site back garden and next doors.
We need to build the fence still.
It's spring but it feels like summer, and what am I doing? sitting indoors on the pc of course. But, I have the most amazing view of this tree with masses of blossom on it. It's really lovely to just look out the window and see all of this green and white and flowers!

BLOSSOM ♥ Love it
