New look for the Studio... new era for me!

 So... I had the last class with my lovely students a couple of weeks ago. Oh, it has been great watching them all develop their confidence and expression, but now it's time to part - I need to have my studio to myself to move my own work on.

I like to work thematically, often in paint, or other mixed media or charcol, but I like making little videos and also time based pieces.

For a few years now, I have been developing my "Aquarium of Dreams" project. Gathering ideas and filming pieces. It's going to be an immersive experience... and of course I will try it out in the studio.

I also hold little pop up gigs there from time to time. So, I decided to paint the studio walls black.

                                                                             It begins...

                                                                  No going back...

                                                                         TAH DAH!!!
It feels like being in a charcol drawing or an Anselm Kiefer painting.

You can see how this end will be a fab performance space, the audience will be at little tables, like a speakeasy.

This was how we set it up last time... 

I'll let you know how it all progresses.

I have re-worked the Pandemic, Fates large painting...

This is it now!

 The painting had been in the cupboard all year and it niggled away in my brain..

While it was very lovely and etherial, it wasn't really what I had intended; it didn't have the emotion I wanted. 

The reworking begain... Oooo I was brutal. Though I did like some of the various experiments inbetween.

Anyway, I ended up with this at the moment.

Here are some close ups...
