GROUP EXHIBITION
BEHIND THE SCENES
Taunton Brewhouse

Behind the Scenes runs with the theme of Somerset Open Studios, looking at artist’ processes and practice, featuring a selection of artworks which surveys the breadth of work produced by Somerset Art Works members and the terrain in which Somerset artists now find themselves.

The work will have a sense of change or evolution reflecting the dynamic and profound processes which have affected artist’s practice at this time, accompanied by personal artist statements which provide a unique insight into their thoughts and ideas.

The gallery is open Monday – Friday, 10:00 – 16:00

Dates: Friday 8 September to Monday 30 October

Bubble Woman Leaving Studio

The Emergence Of Bubble Woman

'It had happened before,
during the Covid Pandemic of 2020.
We were told to stay in our bubbles,
while they
Broke The Rules.
But this time,
when they instructed us to socialise in bubbles,
We refused
We rebelled
We revolted
We would not gather in bubbles.
Instead,
we atomised ourselves.
We
Became
Bubbles'

Are You Local?

When I moved into my studio in September 2021, the most common question that I was asked by visitors was, 'Are you local?'. This unexpected question led me to think about the characteristic of 'local', and at what point do we become associated with a location?

Turning the question back to the public, I asked on my studio window, 'Are YOU local?' and in order to better get to know my local community, I offered free portrait sittings for anyone who has ever lived or worked in Watchet.

My publication 2020 is now sold out. The book included a signed limited edition print on 300gsm archival paper.
2020 Cover

At the beginning of 2020, I was looking for a subject to provoke daily creativity, and turned to the headlines of the BBC News App for inspiration. Every day for a year I committed to publishing on Instagram my creative response to the top headline that appeared when I opened the app. This book presents the art project as it unfolded, along with the unforgettable events that led to the tumultuous spread of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The publication chronicles the disaster as it happened, through daily photographs, videos, paintings, drawings, sketches and illustrations. Each image is accompanied by text that details the date and BBC headline, alongside hashtags that described the events of each day.

A foreword is written by Camilla Brown, curator, writer and educator on contemporary art, previously Senior Curator at The Photographer’s Gallery and Exhibitions Curator at Tate Liverpool.
