FINAL WEEKS of 'Points of Juncture'
‘Points of Juncture’
is now into it's final weeks. Comprising recent textile and sculptural works, and specially-commissioned pieces that draw inspiration from Forty Hall’s textile history. The works look at self, identity and memory, linking both the artist's work, with the material identity of Forty Hall – a place built upon a textile legacy, by its former owner, Sir Nicholas Rainton who traded textiles across Europe.
'Points of Juncture'
is commissioned by Forty Hall Estate with support from Arts Council England.
Exhibition ends Sunday 22 October 2017

The Petri Project: Visualising DNA
I have been invited to contribute to this project and exhibition, with my two petri dish interpretations on the theme of ‘My DNA’. Leicester-based artists Ruth Singer & Gillian McFarland have been artists in residence at Leicester University Department of Genetics exploring creative and visual responses to DNA research. They are putting together a collaborative exhibition piece made up of petri dishes, to be exhibited at Leicester University, 10 November 2017 - 11 January 2018, with further exhibitions in Berlin and Bath.
The project is funded by Arts Council England, Leicester University & De Montfort University Fine Art Photography Research Group.
