This week I’ve finished the piece of work I am submitting to MOMA Wales summer open [ but then selected ] exhibition. This gallery, which is relatively small but quite wonderful, is in Machynlleth in Wales. The theme of the exhibition this year is ‘The Garden’, and my work accordingly is called ‘Garden I, Lost, then Found’. There will be a ‘Garden II’, too. If it’s not selected, I’ll still love this gallery; I just don’t manage to visit it as much as I would like to.
Keeping to the Welsh theme, Six and Friends ‘Orientation’ travelling exhibition is shortly going to be showing at Minerva Gallery, in Llanidloes. I finished my nasturtium piece some time ago, but only got around to sorting its hanging out this week, and also re-jigged the hanging of a couple of other pieces too. The nasturtium piece is now called ‘Summer Triptych’, and the other two pieces were with the Orientation show at the Bramble Patch, but I don’t think they have been blogged before, so here they are too. They will join my bigger pieces in the show, ‘Li Carpet’ and ‘Floating Gardens’.
The show runs from July 8 until September 7.
Garden I, Lost, then Found. 80 cm x 40 cm, mounted on pre-stretched canvas.
Summer Triptych. 150 cm x 110 cm.
Autumn Moon. 100 cm x 50 cm.
Spring Moon. 100 cm x 45 cm.
And some close ups, which excite me more than the finished piece, as they have so much potential for future pattern based work.
