Junior Snailspace Art Trail launch at Jubilee Library- Snailed it !

Snailspace Brighton is a vibrant and exciting, FREE, public art event in Brighton & Hove. Admire 50 giant painted Snail sculptures and over 50 Junior Snails as you explore our great city at a snail’s pace.

Following on from the hugely successful Snowdogs by the Sea art trail in 2016, Martlets, has once again teamed up with Wild in Art to deliver a mass participation sculpture trail that is great fun for families, artists, and businesses, all whilst raising vital funds for a local charity.

The sculptures can be found throughout Brighton & Hove, highlighting our city’s historical landmarks, architecture and creativity in our vibrant community.

Painting the Snail for Snailspace 2018

Painting the snail with the children. Snailway is in Brighton from 15 September – 18 November 2018

Here’s the snail I painted with the children at St Marks Primary and being auctioned in aid of @martletshospice the snails will be all over Brighton – ours will be in St George’s Church in Kemptown

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.

Discover over 50 snailtastic Junior Snails along the Junior Snailway from 15 September – 18 November 2018

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.”

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

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)

About artbyjaxx

Contemporary British artist, Jacqueline Hammond, is renowned for producing strong, punchy images that are rich in texture and colour. A prolific painter and multidisciplinary artist, she exhibits widely and is commissioned by individual clients, collectors and high profile brands. Jacqueline’s inspiration comes from direct observation: subject matter is plucked from the world encountered every day. Some ideas evolve, others are reactionary. Thought-provoking themes explore today’s society, the media and cultural theory. Whether inspired by the street or the sea, Jacqueline’s work has an edge: her paintings are consistently striking. Her natural disposition is to let the paint dictate the creative process, trusting the medium and her mind’s eye to translate the vision.
