I have recently began experimenting with creating electrochemical landscapes inspired by the sea and minerals of Cornwall.
In the process of creating the above works, I discovered a technique for creating tree and fern like forms, which I will use in the creation of further electrochemical landscapes.
This will be my first Open Studios… ever!
Over the last few weeks I have been transforming my outdoor studio into a small gallery space and hanging the newly created collection of ‘electrochemical paintings’.
A repurposed curtain rail enabled the artworks to be easily re-arranged and the addition of LED spotlights completed the transformation from studio to gallery.
If it happens to be too sunny or raining, there is a shade/umbrella for visitors waiting to go inside the studio gallery (1 in, 1 out).
From Saturday 29 August to Sunday 6 September, more than 200 artists, designers and makers will be welcoming socially-distanced visitors into their studios in a celebration of artistic practice, with appropriate safety measures in place.
From Marazion to St Minver, St Ives to Saltash and Penzance to Penwithick, in leafy villages, seaside settlements and wooded valleys, painters, printmakers and potters; textile designers, sculptors and illustrators will guide you between granite gateposts, down gravelled driveways and along ancient footpaths – and to the Open Studios Cornwall website, enhanced with online studio tours and additional digital content by participants who are not able to throw open their doors, for reasons of limited space or personal vulnerability – to discover, discuss and purchase their work.
Curate your own art trail by following those distinctive orange ‘O’s across the Duchy’s creeks, coves and coastlines – or take the virtual route from the comfort of your own home – and support Cornwall’s creative community. Please check the website for the latest information about who is opening and when.
