Extra Bones: Work in Progress III 4th - 7th April 2013 Utrophia, ,http://www.utrophia.net/places/projectspace3
I took part in a collaborative & intensive 3 day residency called 'Progress in Work III '. Andrew Kerr of Extra Bone fame co-ordinated the event and I worked along side artists, Reena Makwana & Tim Spooner.
First Day.The opening night was a late, I ran an informal rubber stamp class and there was beer and some music. The rubber stamp work was included in the first Progress in Work pamphlet, I photocopied over the prints with images created by the 3 artists.
Second Day.I started to carve and print with the Yams, Sweet Potatoes and other root vegetables I collected from Deptford Market. Catfish, Dried Fish and Fresh Whelks were picked up to inspire the work.
I started to explore repeated patterned printing through the use of adapted rollers. This was the first time i had attempted this, I cut out sweet potato rollers using a small piece of plastic piping then craved abstract and figurative patterns of circles and crayfish into them.
