It was with great pleasure i found myself back at Leeds Arts University exhibiting as part of the TCL Art Collective in October. We were commissioned to produce work to exhibit on the main stairway of the University leading up to the 2nd floor. Over the years I have passed this stairway many times in my time at the University and having the opportunity to show work in this space opposite the timeline of now famous alumni has been a great honour.
I chose the work pictured above 'Illumination' as my main piece. Its likeness 'Earthrise' the first image taken of earth from the moons surface in 1968 by astronaut Bill Andres was one of the reason i chose this particular piece. 'Earthrise' was also the first image recognised as kick starting the Environmental Movement. I discovered this image while on my degree in Interdisciplinary Art & Design and still it informs my practice today as an Environmental Artist.
Because there are 6 framed works and 5 TCL members the 6th frame will be presented as a second piece of work from us all on rotation for approx 1 month each. I will be the second one up which should be from around the week beginning 5/11/18 so if your in and around the Uni take a look at my second piece of work....it is very different to the main piece.....let me know what you think!!
