What I have been doing, February 2014

What have I been up to of late?

As an artist;

I have finally sourced something I have been wanting for a little bit of time now:

fb post wool

So, a small win there.

I have a plan for a project; hopefully it will go well. Wish me luck!

As a person; so many different things…

I moved to Bath, from London (not as stressful as moving hemispheres, I must say)

I  started a new, really grown-up job which has been absolutely wonderful

I got sick with an annoying, niggling little cough

I found a permanent-ish home

I learned a little more about long distance relationships

I tried Thatcher’s cider, and liked it

I got rained on, a lot

And that is about it! Not too bad for the first two weeks of February.

About kellymarietheartist

I am an artist who, up until recently, was living and exhibiting within Toowoomba and the greater Granite Belt district. I have since packed up and left Australia, and am currently living and working in England. My work engages the craft involved in handmaking within a contemporary art context. I am drawn to the physicality of repetitive textile processes, and this is transcribed though the tactile quality of my forms. In particular, processes such as crochet, sewing and rug making serve as a proxy for growth within my personal environment. Many of my works imitate situations in nature, and they form organically as I create each individual piece, each addition both a continuation and re-enforcement of its predecessors. I enjoy using recycled materials for many of my works. Using crochet and other textile techniques to do this is an important part of my work as it celebrates a tradition of craft that has historically been relegated to 'women's work', with all the negative connotations that entails.
