10/01/1517 January - 28 February 2015
INVITATION you are warmly invited to a
Preview Night: Friday 16 January 6-8pm.
As one of four PH1 Artists I have been residing on a building site based in the centre of York, researching and documenting the progress of a landmark building being constructed for Hiscox Insurance in Peasholme.
Over many months I have been inventing and developing a new print process to reflect the very nature of the build and I am looking forward to sharing this new and complimentary aspect to my work which will go on show at
The New Schoolhouse Gallery PH1 Artists in Place Residency
Satellite artists working with me include Painter, Phil Reynolds and Poet, Eliza Gregory, both exciting artists and a real pleasure to work with.
A survey exhibition curated by Paula Jackson and Robert Teed that presents work produced during and as a result of the PH1: Artists in Place residency pilot project. Lead artists John Newling, Delaine and Damian Le Bas, Stevie Ronnie and Catherine Sutcliffe-Fuller - the 'stars' in PH1's 'four star system' - have spent many days immersed in the centre of York, engaging its public on wide-ranging global issues from a local perspective. Their findings form an integral part of these new works, encompassing a 'new York' perspective that will offer a revitalized and contemporary view of the city.
The exhibition also includes works produced by the following PH1 'satellite' artists, who were mentored and supported during the residencies: Josh Burnell, Julia Davis, Claire Fisher, Eliza Gregory, Jean Harlow, Vesna Milinkovic, Matthew Herring, Alexandra Michael, Annie Morad, Phil Reynolds and Maru Rojas.
In addition, the PH1 exhibition features an exclusive film of Holocaust survivor Iby Knill, commissioned as part of City of York Council's Holocaust Memorial Day Programme 2015.
