Arts Council of Wales Production Grant

Awarded September 2019

I am delighted to have been awarded an Arts Council of Wales production grant, for a project, partnered by Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, entitled A Gradual Moment. This grant offers the opportunity for me to develop new work for a solo exhibition to open at Glynn Vivian Art Gallery in October 2021. The work will tour to three further venues: Aberystwyth Arts Centre (Ceredigion, Wales), Oriel Plas Glyn Y Weddw (Gwynedd, Wales) and L’Etrangere (London)

Taking the domestic realm as its site of enquiry, the intention is to create a body of work that presents as an intimate but nameless still life that speaks of the ordinary and the human. Points of transition and the in-between space are enduring themes within my art practice; specifically it is the imperceptible, uncertain nature of these spaces and their relationship to our human experience that interests me. The domestic spaces that we occupy, benign on the surface, operate as latent gaps within the narratives of our lives, potent with intimacy and disquiet. A Gradual Moment will be an endeavour to uncover this unsettling but tender human aspect from within the sphere of the domestic.
