As promised . . .
. . . finished picture of the peacock feathers on the bed!
Thanks to Jim who, for the cheap price of a few chocolate mini muffins, came round and helped transform my lounge into a photo studio for the evening and took some fab shots of this piece and another one I’ll be posting soon.
The following excerpt from The Ebony Tower was influential in the emotion I hope to reference with the piece,
“the undeclared knowledge of a shared imagination hung in the air; in her half-hidden figure against the light on the floor behind, in the silence, the bed in the corner, the thousand ghosts of old rooms. One was stunned, perhaps; that knowledge could come so quickly . . .as if it was the place, not oneself”
I feel really pleased with this piece but I don’t know if the size of it will mean that it will be very difficult to get it exhibited somewhere. I guess its a big investment in terms of space. I’m going to submit it to aspex’s biennial open submission exhibition – Emergency 4. It feels like a long shot because they only select a maximum of 12 artists but I would absolutely love to show there (the gallery space – a formal naval storehouse – is fantastic and would be a prefect backdrop for the bed) so fingers crossed!
