Uncommon Spaces

Circuta Virosa Installation Parc Du Monod

'Common Threads, Common Land' first shown at art textil sent in Switzerland continues in Le Mans, France from 31st October until 22nd November in the  Pavillon MONAD, Parc Theodore Monad under the kind invitation of the City of Le Mans.The building and park were once the barracks of the 117th Infantry. With its raw walls provides and interesting backdrop for its temporary exhibitions. 

Bridges

 I like the way the walls sometimes merge with the work and the edges are lost.
Dutch Blue
Lace Windows
40 Yards
 

Some of the lovely walls both presenting a challenge and an opportunity to see work differently.

 Outside, and the Autumn colour.

 As part of the week I also ran workshops at Atelier de Genevieve looking at restructured books, text and image. Some images of work in progress:




I finished the short stay in France with a brief visit to the Musee Bourdelle, home of fabulous sculpture in gardens including Antoine Bourdelle and Rodin. 




I was also delighted to exhibit with the  Canterbury Festival as part of Runnymede Revisited (in celebration of the signing of the Magna Carta) at St Peters Church on Oare. Again, I loved how the work responded to the space. 
I will also be exhibiting 'Common Place, Common Land' a linked exhibition at the Cafe Gallery in Maidstone Museum in December. This exhibition will have a 'Meet the Artist Day' on 12th December in aid of Ranscombe Farm/Plantlife
(Exhibition also supported also by John Harper, Partner of St. James’s Place Wealth Management www.johncharper.co.uk)
