NEO:Artists – Artist in Residence: Day 16

Day Sixteen – 30th March, 2017: Evening! Today has been pretty straight forward.   I have begun the etching process with 3 A3 zinc plates.   3 plates take an incredibly long time to process,  firstly having to use Brasso to polish them,  then using the french chalk and Cillit bang to degrease.   This is…

Day Fifteen – 29th March, 2017: Good evening! It’s been a fairly relaxed and slow day today, similar routine to the usual. Breakfast, which is now actually yoghurt with honey and maple & pecan granola (it’s delicious).  Had an early start, around 8:00AM and the weather was miserable, overcast and raining. Naomi and I arrived at the studios…

NEO:Artists – Artist in Residence: Day 5

Day Five – 15th March, 2017 Had a crap night’s sleep. Woke up at 11am to make up for the lack of sleep. Eat the usual. Cycled down to the studios. So, today has literally been assembling the inside of the installation. Jheeeeeeeees, it’s been so bloody hard to achieve. It’s so so fiddly. I mean,…
