‘Greens Create…’ Art Exhibition at The Hoxton Arches Gallery in London – 19th October to 24th October. 2016.
‘Green Creates…’ is an innovative free week-long exhibition which seeks to celebrate Green Creativity. Andy Goldsworthy : Grayson Perry : Gavin Turk : Ralph Steadman : Lesley Hilling : Jon Snow – A fantastic line-up of artists talking about the environment through Artworks.
I am very excited to be part of this exhibition; my contribution brings focus on the waterways of England and Wales… We live and travel on our narrowboat ‘Hekla’ – this life enables us to see the environment and how the wildlife live among us. The waterway networks are the corridor gardens linking the towns and cities together. My drawing in the exhibition : looks at what does the average person see? An endangered species, or do you simply see a frog… ‘I became enchanted…’ is a poem written to be read in any direction… so it changes with each reading… to be read up close… Whilst the drawing is to be admired from a distance…
I began working on a series of drawings which capture an essence of encounters; coming together as postcards, prose, drawings, sketches, paintings; they tell the story of the characters we comes to know.. Watercolour, Pen and ink, pencils, create… Kingfishers perched, diving, rising, frogs sunbathing,, toads hiding, swans tapping on windows, lapwings flocking, geese squawking, coots hiding, moorhens fighting, a narration of life on the water. To realise what a difference water quality and habitat can make; is the meaning of life or death. For with out either we loose a species… food for thought!
