This month I am holding a monthlong residency in the basement space at the Milkwood gallery (http://milkwoodgallery.com/index. ) This will be split into two parts.
The first part is an investigation into the production of afterimages. These ‘negative’ visual phenomena occur all the time but are edited out of our perception. Only in special circumstances can we trick our brains and glimpse this hidden world.
This project has been researched with the support of Georgie Powell a PHD student at Cardiff University. Although adjustments to this will be made throughout the first half of the residency, the focal point of these experiments will be an opening event on Friday 16th September from 5pm to 8pm.
The second part of the residency is an opportunity to see the recent 2D works exhibited together in Cardiff. Consisting of recent works and the highlights of the MA degree show work (with the exception of those pieces that have already sold). The space will be open in the normal Milkwood opening hours 10am – 5pm Tuesday – Saturday. In addition there will again be an opening event planned for Friday the 30th September 5pm – 8pm. I will be in the basement with my dominoes (Anblickspiel- see below) inviting people to sit and play a game with me. There will also be an opportunity to buy prints of selected works, while stocks last,…as well as an opportunity to buy the originals of course! . Hopefully you will all come and relax and enjoy an evening with the artist.
