Thinking thoughts out loud……..

 

Contemplating The Absurd and SEARCHING for  meaning in a world seemingly without point or reason.

………..we all have a story to tell

………..In the subconscious we play to an imaginary audience and drift in and out of a subjective reality – the Theatre of the Mind.

………..Thinking about the space between fantasy and reality. The threshold of leaving one and moving into the other.

………..today I went to the theatre, I am audience and actor. I will go again tomorrow.

………..of Liminal Performance – “located at the edge of what is possible”  Sue Broadhurst.

…………I hear the silence, it is shouting at me to listen.

…………Am I somewhere between fantasy and reality, between spirituality and reason moving constantly between dream and being.

Artist in Residence

Artist in Residence – Thornbury Town Mayor, Helen Harrison. 2016/17

This residency is a first for Thornbury  and was initiated by Helen when she approached me to be her artist in Residence. Together we will explore what it is like to be part of the community of Thornbury.

Throughout the year I will be working with various groups in Thornbury to discover what  it feels like to be in their group and their place within the community.

Art Workshop for 7 – 11 year olds

28th January, 2017.

What a lovely group of children we had at Thornbury Library creating artwork with gusto. We talked about what it means to be part of a community and the things they get involved in. There certainly was no timidness when they created their own large scale  characters out of cardboard. Thank you to Thornbury Library for letting me run this.
