BROKEN DOWN.... 

EXHIBITION AND NEW WORK IN PAINTING.

(If you have watched to the end of the vid, yes my son is fine and I bought him a new guitar!)

WOWEE 100% Please see Update #1 for Stretch Goals....

The project is to create a new body of work to be exhibited at The Python Gallery in Middlesbrough. The exhibition will open with a private view on the 25th of July this year, and the work needs to be completed to hang by the 7th of July! 

This will be my first solo exhibition in over a year, I'm incredibly excited about  it and I would love to make it the best I possibly can. I am hoping with your help I can do this.

Why Kickstarter

To make this project great I am looking for funds to help me fulfill the project outcomes, these include materials, namely purchasing canvases to create the new paintings on, - also to create the rewards for you wonderful people. Publicity material for the exhibition, and the costs of the private view as this lies with me and not the gallery!

About the work

The new work will bring together a lot of elements and themes I have been exploring over the past year, including beauty, the portrayal of "normal" women, self portraiture, sexuality within art, the painterly surface and experimentation with paints and other mediums (see below for more examples of work).

 For the last year I have been lucky enough to have a studio within the old Cleveland Crafts Center and to be very warmly welcomed into the Gilkes Street Artists group, this studio was funded by the Strategic Development fund and Mima. 

Thanks MIMA!!
Thanks MIMA!!

Having this studio space has made a huge difference to my art practice and really pushed my work forward, I have had work included in numerous group exhibitions and started to sell my work on Artfinder, which is going well! its been a good year. Within the month as a group the Gilkes Street Artists will be moving to a new building and new studios, I am very much looking forward to creating my new work in a new setting. Hopefully another exciting year is ahead. 

Thank you for reading, and thanks so much for your support, it meams the world. Please keep watching for further updates.

Risks and challenges

It will be very difficult for me to create the standard of exhibition expected without your help, the exhibition may end up with quite a retrospective element as I may not be able to afford to by enough canvases to create the work. Also the exhibition may not have the greatest impact if I can not pay for a private view. I hope that this exhibition may be a stepping stone to bigger and better exhibitions and projects, and so I am really pushing to make it the best I possibly can.

If more money is raised than expected then I will be able to produce even more work and will be able to experiment more with materials. I will be able to publicise the exhibition incredibly well.. and make it an amazing success.. Who knows where this stepping stone could take me.
Thank you.
