WORK IN PROGRESS

at
Hilltop Art House

Seating in our exhibition space at Hilltop Art House. I am working on them simultaneously to ensure they balance each other. It’s a big project!

This is the moment I have been waiting for where I can not only see how the two settees are working together but how the entire space works. Some minor tweaking has taken place but surprisingly very little. This work takes a lot of concentration and decision making with every shape, line and mark being considered. Needless to say I was in my element.

A CHILDHOOD LANDSCAPE
work in progress

A Childhood Landscape is the title of this work in progress which is very close to my heart. Being the 10th of 12 children made for quite a childhood and provided many memories, most of them happy. Although we were as poor as church mice in many ways we lived a life of abundance. Thanks that is, to our parents who were extremely resourceful and imaginative. Qualities which have expressed themselves differently in all of us. Whichever way you look at it, it is an unmistakable trait of The Wilson Family as is an undeniable streak of eccentricity. Traits which I have often relied upon to get me through life and are of course very useful to an artist. I am forever grateful for the gifts that being part of this family have bestowed upon me.

WORKING on the COLLAGE DRAWINGS

IMG_5903It has been very slow progress on these works and the changes very subtle.  Until eventually it began to transform.  Although it is slow to build, it is very satisfying work.

STEPPING UP

I had to rearrange the entire studio before I could even start on this large painting.  I soon realised the step stool I was using was going to be inadequate for the job.  So off I went in search of something better… and look what I found.  A mini scaffold, perfect.

TWIN PROJECT

A collaborative project between Lorraine Corker and Lorretta Gibbs

from studio session

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

This project is a visual journey into the twin-world my sister and I share.  It allows a  metaphorical glimpse into our private world.  While drawing  upon the experiences of our childhood twindom – it is from the perspective of our sixty year old selves.  Not only does it deal with the bonds we share, but also many of the misconceptions singletons have of what it is to be a twin.

The project is ongoing, but at the present time we are not sure where it is going.  We’re just travelling along to see where the journey takes us.
