This weekend I am exhibiting four structures which have one life as four lobes of a brain but which have taken on a separate and parallel life as wall mounted sculptures
This is my exhibit this year, as part of Open Studio’s Nottingham. We, 3RD Space Studio’s are one of several studios in and around Sherwood which are open to the public this week-end. Today, Sunday and Bank holiday Monday, 10.00 a.m. till 5.00 p.m.
Last week-end was all about being a part of a Group Exhibition at All Hallows Church in Lady Bay.
We were eleven Artists,: Paul Liptrot, Pip Crawforth, Sarah Finer, Paula McCann, Laura Matthews, Phil Clarke, Fran Tristram, Chloe Pas, Paul Crawforth, Holly Early and myself.
Beautiful show in harmony with its environment. Although we were many, it all felt spacious. Cool, calm and collected. Many visitors took refuge in our sanctuary.
The masks returning to their roots in order to manifest as Gargoyles.
Great to be part of a group show where we were exchanging thoughts and ideas. All of us seeing our own work though other peoples eyes and seeing it in a new environment. This in turn gives us a different perspective on our own work.
Such a delight to see how this structure moves and changes it’s character as it has moved from a flat plan, through being a bas-relief hanging on a wall, to becoming a fully three dimensional structure, fully actuated in space.
This week I have been mainly making a Polygonal Brain.
Working with Nottingham University to make a giant representation of a brain for a Science Exhibition at the Royal Society in July. Some way to go, with a range of technologies yet to be attached. A treat to be working with scientists, sharing skills.
Well it has Happened and the Sun Shone brightly and s,the crowds came flocking.
It has been so much fun after two years of hard work.
Finally find The Nottingham Urban Fox that I have been waiting for.

I know that many people could, and would, accuse me of having too many tea towels. Maybe over 900 does seem a bit excessive but I love tea towels, in all their varieties and I do use them, all. I have been collecting them, myself, for over 50 years and, on…
Everyone beavering away, in Offices, Studio’s, Caves, Theatre’s and the Streets of Nottingham. Completing puppets, sets, sewing, risk-assessments, orders, invoices, tickets, chairs, gazebo’s, domes, van’s and yet so very much more.
We shall be starting tomorrow evening on World Puppet Day, 21st March 2018.
Still no sign of Urban Foxes.
