We had a very successful Sunday at Studio 36 on 25th November. Here are some of the artists that joined us. And of course Veronica Gosling and Gordon Hill displayed their colourful and very mixed media work, as usual.
We were treated to a night of songs, poems and stories with Kimwei, Fiona Benson and David Heathfield.
We had a fun exhibition of children’s response to our fence project as the highlight of our OPEN STUDIO weekend; devised by Mary Bramble of our earlier sculpture trail event, with coloured marker pens tied to the fence, and removable pictures of faces from our garden sculptures. We’ve had about 40 passing young geniuses contribute names, likes, and habitats ranging from Seoul, Australia and Exeter as they have passed along Denmark Rd.
Every now and then I have a bonfire, and due to carelessness some bits of what I’m burning, scorch, but escape. One day when gathering these bits together I decided to use them. It has taken me a long time to find the way to do this, I’ve tried all sorts of backgrounds for the figure, collage, woodstain & finally decided on this acrylic painted background. For some reason the fence pulled it together. The actual figure is pasted on.
2.PERSON AND BIRD.
This one is all woodstain, pine, mahogany, walnut, ebony etc. except for the white which is acrylic. Several layers of finishing oil, and quite a bit of sanding when I made a mistake.
This is a recently-commissioned 4′ x 2′ oak table with tiles by Veronica Gosling and table by Clive Hurman. We are open to further tiled table commissions, contact us if you are interested.
