Sketches and Designs

Our snail is a combination of a whole number of children’s ideas. Jacqueline Hammond, a parent and a local artist, helped us bring all these ideas together to create our finished piece. The snail is all about making the most of your time, slowing down and enjoying the world. It is about turning off technology and reconnecting with each other.

Name of Snail – MJ 

Designed by: St Mark’s CE Primary School
Located at: St. George’s Church

Photos of the process of painting the snail for Snailspace at St Mark’s Primary School in East Brighton during July 2018. Based on elements of the children’s designs I made a sketch of the snail we now had in mind to paint.

Some of the Junior Snails

Our Junior Snailway is made up of Junior Snail sculptures to accompany their full size (i.e. giant!) counterparts across the city.

The Junior Snails have all been decorated by children from schools and community youth groups, with over 20,000 young people taking part. ‘Packs’ of Junior Snails are being exhibited in cultural and educational venues across the city throughout Autumn 2018.

“The Lines and the Circle” (2012) by Geta Bratescu

https://mobile.nytimes.com/2018/02/19/arts/design/geta-bratescu.html?smid=tw-share

“I think of drawing as a dance,” Mrs. Bratescu said. “And a dance is a drawing in space. If you don’t appreciate dancing, these things aren’t possible to create.”

Mrs. Bratescu’s studio has long played an essential role in her creative process. In 1978, she made an experimental black-and-white film titled “The Studio,” and last year an exhibition in London explored how critical the space has been for her.

“My family and friends, everyone, understood that the studio was a necessity,” Mrs. Bratescu said. “But it’s not very complicated; like for many artists, it’s a place of my own.”

Magda Radu, a Bucharest-based curator and art historian, said in a telephone interview, “It’s space of freedom, delineated from the outside world, but very fertile and productive.” Ms. Radu has worked closely with Mrs. Bratescu for a number of years and curated both the Venice exhibition and the show in Los Angeles. “For artists in Eastern Europe, the studio represents a space of autonomy.”

High Quality Visitors – Festival Highlights – Artists Open Houses 2018

What a sociable month May was – I had so many lovely conversations with people that it’s going to take a while to remember the people that came to visit my open house so I’m going to make a little list quickly.

Those who made it to the trail’s ‘outpost’ had dedication and conviction. They had made the effort, as it were. Thank you all for coming – I hope some of you might be reading this 😉

Here’s some photos of a few moments I managed to capture but I’m gonna set a photo booth next year as I would love to have portrayed or made portraits even, of the people that came. (Welcome to come back and take part – new project) . I kept many people chatting for up to an hour and had a steady flow of people that gave me time to have some really decent conversations. A thoroughly enjoyable experience and far more relaxed ‘doing it from home’ … (draft)
