LACE: At a Distance - WetDovetail

November 2021

This Exhibition considers place and connection. As a part oft the LACE collective, we as a group have lived and worked with each other for the previous three years, recently this year the circumstances have changed. This exhibition talks of the frustration and isolation of making work removed from this exchange of creativity. unlike the conditions of lockdown, in which these artists studied and had to frequently communicate with one another, LACE find themselves physically distanced from one another, creating an opportunity for this dialogue comes less frequently. The exhibition considers the creative influence which we take for granted in these structures and explores the independent development of the individual within the collective.

'Untitled' - Pineapple Black

November 2021

 The purpose of this exhibition was to bring attention to the significance that a title holds over an art work. Titles aim to inform the audience , even a lack of a title is a comment on the work. The exhibition holds the title in as high regard as the work itself. our perception of a piece is largely informed by the title that is given, by placing the title in the immediate attention of the audience, the viewers become more aware the true power this holds over the piece. After all this is a key piece of information that has been provided by the artist, so should not be overlooked. Too often, the title is written in small print in a leaflet or in small writing away from the piece. it is part of the work; it is a crucial factor that allows the audience access to the work. This exhibition pushes to change our attitude to titles and help audiences bring more of their awareness to the title of a piece.

Middlesbrough Art Weekender

September - October 2021

I was awarded 'The Northern Graduate award' during 2021 from my degree show. This award was in the form of exhibiting during Middlesbrough Art Weekender, an art festival that this year ran through Middlesbrough during the end of September to the begging of October 2021. The piece I exhibited followed on with the similar interest in heritage however it looked at the heritage of Middlesbrough'a local art spaces. I chose Base Camp as it is one of the longest running galleries in Middlesbrough

 as well as the building that the art space occupies being heritage listed.

Stay Connected: Inner City: Out of Place

April 2021

This exhibition was a digital exhibition held by artist and Curator Lois Harkin. Over the third lockdown period in the UK, Lois Harkin has set up a virtual art gallery space called Stay Connected. She has been a host of multiple different virtual exhibitions consisting of different themes. This theme looked at concepts surrounding the urban landscape, but the other mediums were very different. The work that I had involved in the gallery was my piece, 'The Isaac Wilson', 2020, which depicts a Public house in Middlesbrough that used to be a county court. The name derives from a mighty man in Middlesbrough during the industrial era.
