The Craft Bursary Project at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art is now finished. It’s been a rewarding five months, and a unique opportunity to develop a new project. It will no doubt continue to have a positive effect on my work. The next few months will be spent using the experimental pieces, drawings and photos to create a resolved body of work back in my own studio. Source material will be added to as appropriate.
The project has served to highlight how influential such a residency or placement can be for creative development, with the time for thinking, reflecting, drawing and writing just as valuable as making itself.
Some of my previous work based on research into tourism will be exhibited at The Collins Gallery, Glasgow in ‘Unite’. 16th April – 7th May. www.collinsgallery.strath.ac.uk
