Feedback from my first solo exhibition
Nerve wracking doesn't even begin to describe the
overwhelming sensation of opening the "Beginnings" exhibition
in Castle Douglas last month. Perhaps I should also throw in excitement,
fear and dread.
What if nobody comes? What if people turn their noses
up, or sneer at my work? What if the building catches fire, or there's
an earthquake...? In the end I needn't have worried, but artists
are a notoriously insecure bunch.
The feedback I received from visitors was overwhelmingly
positive. It seems that people were genuinely moved by my artwork.
Time and again I was told how this piece or that had struck a deep
My art is an expression of my own emotional journey.
I try to channel those feelings and ideas into light, colour and
texture. So to see other people genuinely affected by my creations
was a truly rewarding experience.
I would like to thank everyone who came to the exhibition
and took the time to talk to me, comment in the visitor's book,
and sign up to this newsletter.
Using "Window" as a window into the way I work
After the positive feedback I received from
the promotional video created for the "Beginnings" Exhibition
(see April's Newsletter),
I thought I could use the same process to give you an insight
in to some of the thoughts and techniques I used to create one
of my recent artworks, "Window".
Sit back, press play and enjoy.
