I'M ON TV!
24 July 2022
Whilst I can't pretend the programme was all about me, I had great fun watching this engaging and informative documentary about the RA Summer Exhibition. Presented by the one-and-only Joe Lycett, it was on BBC2, and can still be viewed on the BBC iPlayer app - "Joe Lycett: Summer Exhibitionist".
My cyanotype "Aquarius" and I pop up a few times in the background. It was exciting to see Aquarius heading for the traditional judging stool, which has been part of the RA forever - a bit like the sorting hat at Hogwarts. Luckily, it was picked!

ONLINE SCULPTURE EXHIBITION

Not many people know that I also make sculptures from my beach-salvaged items, in addition to my more familiar cyanotypes.
I was particularly delighted to have been selected by curator and wonderful sculptor Cath Stocker to be part of her innovative virtual exhibition dedicated entirely to sculptures which have their inspiration in activism and offer new insights beyond what is immediately visible to the viewer.
Artivism In|Sight is hosted on the ArtCan website at www.artcan.org.uk and can be viewed in 360 degree virtual reality, complete with a beautiful soundscape recorded especially for this exhibition.
