Memoirs

I was keen to try new materials for this commission, including incorporating my own light source. The lighting in POD gallery consists of several banks of very bright fluorescent strips and I’d hoped that adding lights to my installation would help combat the brightness. Horses provided the backbone to the vast logistical operations during World […]

“It’s like The Somme”

I’ve been commissioned to make some work for a group exhibition to be shown at POD gallery, Bishop Auckland during FebFest, an annual arts festival curated by Jane Crawford of Daisy Arts. The theme of the exhibition is ‘The Somme:Remembrance & Expression’. My immediate thoughts were to do something inspired by the horses that served […]

The 22 black & white photographs, made during the festival of St-Eloi, 2013 were presented either side of an old water fountain, traditionally used to water horses. Once again I was hosted […]

Borrowing Freedom, Saint-Éloi

“In riding a horse we borrow freedom” Helen Thompson Finally, I’ve started going through the pics shot last August during the Fête de Saint-Éloi in Cuges les Pins, France.

Buttons for Shoot! the book

I’m getting there. I decided after much deliberation to use tin snips on the ends of the spent shotgun cartridges and then fold over since my first attempt resulted in very sharp edged buttons. So…..I’ve cut off the plastic outer with scissors, knocked out the primer (which later forms the button centre) before drilling out […]
