the company of artists [part one]

Sunday 28 June 2009

it’s been a heady few days of artists’ exhibitions, previews and soirees.. times to flaunt with the art and flatter the artists, the opportunity to make new connections, and just very occasionally putting one’s foot in it with foolish assumptions and then having to withdraw graciously to the buffet…. places where wine and words flow… talking of nuances of surface, resonance, veils of colour, vibrations, gradations, from visual clarity to the erased and obscured, from outside to inside, of noise and silence, expansiveness and containment… i am all talked out…

along with the recent work i have set up in the barn for the art trail i also put on show my piece for salthouse 09. which i finally assembled in situ, neatly spacing the verticals, then later coming back to where the journey started, to the horizon… a friend said it appeared calmer that way…
