I’m sorry if I’ve been ignoring you but I’ve been getting “painterly” – creating work to go into my first exhibition; Bikes & Blooms.
Bikes & Blooms is how I’ve branded my first solo exhibition at Four Walls Gallery in Melton Mowbray.
I am a surface designer and also a content creator. My background is in design and brand but I’ve worked as a storyteller, photographer and bit of a closet artist.
In between commercial projects I am always doodling and writing. Recently I’ve started to think about what really interests me as an artist.
Bikes have always been a theme in my work – they seem to be the most pure spirited method of transport. Non polluting and innocent at heart.
How we fit into nature, how it reflects us and how we view it also fascinates me.
My other half is a horticulturalist. Food chains and growing are part of our story. A recent project for a nature reserve has also concreted my thinking around how everything (including us humans) is interconnected. Our trails are negative – roads and such like; whereas animal trails are much more positive but seen to be of lower value for obvious reasons.
I have a bijoux exhibition of my work in Four Walls Gallery at Melton Mowbray which is on until the 28th November or you can watch it play out on Instagram over the next few weeks @wellststudio.
Thanks for your time.
Bikes & Blooms is at Four Walls Gallery, Melton Mowbray LE13 1AE from 8th – 29th November.
