The beginnings....

   I finally have all the parts I need to make the frame, just need for    the snow to go and I'll be able to start putting it all together.  End of    January is my aim to get the whole thing done.  I am so excited to see what the whole thing will look like.  This will be my first piece where I have really thought about my piece beyond the studio.  In a sense this has been my first, solid, freestanding artwork.

In other news I officially own and the site is coming along nicely.  Still a few more tweaks needed but feel free to have a look!

the circular shapes are evolving nicely...

I do, however, still keep being drawn back to the PVC.  This is a collage 
 made from photocopies of PVC fabric.  I obviously just love the stuff!

Philip, Keith and Florescent Colours

The piece is finally up, still can't quite work out the reasons for making and where it's heading, but I am quite happy with it being another link in the chain.  I do feel that some more work is needed.  I definitely want to simplify/abstract further, with the focus being on shape and form.  I am becoming increasingly interested in semiotics and sign systems.  I like that idea of creating a language in shape format, which could help strengthen the visual continuation.  I have been looking in particular at the works of Keith Haring and Philip Guston, who have used recurring forms, albeit figurative in nature, which help generate a strength and permanence to the art. 

I have also managed to pick up 'My first Octagons', which coincidently and unintentionally are the same colours as the cloths above; still keeping the idea of play in mind. It's drawing time I think....
