We really enjoyed the pv for our Flock Together exhibition at A2 Gallery, Wells and we were very grateful to Alan, the gallery owner, for all his help and support. It was fantastic to see all the work together in one place, enabling us to see how the individual pieces fit into the series and reflect on how the work is developing.
We’re looking forward to the first solo exhibition of ‘Flock Together’ opening at the A2 Gallery in Wells tonight. Exciting times yesterday hiring and driving the van to deliver all the work to Alan! Thanks to our brilliant roadie Imogen who did a fantastic job lifting and carrying too.
Hope to see as many people there as possible – the exhibition runs until 11th April and for more details see the gallery website: http://www.a2gallery.co.uk
We were pleased to be invited to the artist talk on abstract art by Andrew Davey, hosted by The Friends of SAW (Somerset Art Works)at Woodlands Castle, Taunton on Wednesday evening. We were very happy to be given space and opportunities to promote our Flock Together project. We took along some framed collaborative monoprints, PV invites and posters for our forthcoming solo show at the A2 Gallery in Wells, as well as some postcards to give away to attendees. We were delighted with the level of interest in our work and forthcoming exhibitions, the positive comments we received and the really interesting new contacts we made. There was a good turnout for the event and Andrew’s talk was both informative and entertaining, presenting images of his own work and others, to give an insight into how abstraction informs his own practice.

As part of our collaborative process, both Debbie and I have experimented, explored and developed our existing practice as artists to create working methods to respond to the webcam and GPS footage. In tandem with the collaborative works which are built up using our alternating layers of hand and machine-made marks, we have simultaneously developed our individual artistic practice, also responding to the webcam and GPS data. We regularly submit our works, both collaborative and individual, to open submission exhibitions and I’m delighted to have these 2 paintings, both derived from sheep-cam footage, selected for the Royal Watercolour Society’s ‘Contemporary Watercolour’ exhibition currently showing until 18th March at Bankside Gallery in London. http://www.royalwatercoloursociety.co.uk

It’s really exciting to see that more traditional societies such as the RWS are taking an interest in our work and keen to embrace new ideas and approaches to using water-based media. These two works each combine gouache, gesso and Indian Ink, capturing, drawing out, defining, reinterpreting and expressing the movement of the sheep across the barn at feeding time.
The private view of the exhibition last week was great, with lots of exciting works by diverse and talented artists – here’s a few images:
Exhibiting and sharing the works, both individual and collaborative, is very important to us, so we’re delighted that these two works have been recognised and exhibited at Bankside.
