Gail Ritchie Contemporary Art
As it's May, and I missed the opportunity to say 'may the fourth be with you!' I am (more seriously) sharing some very early memorial work which I have recently started. For those interested in process, the images above illustrate one way of working. In thinking about concepts for memorial forms, I begin by creating small scale models which are playful experiments in texture and form. Photography and digital manipulation add another layer of thinking (through making) which in turn leads to offshoot ideas and concepts. These in turn, might become drawings which suggest other ways of re-configuring the original 3-D form. It's all about trial and error, experiment/failure and letting the art follow its own path through the research. I will be posting more updates as the work develops and I am excited to see where it goes!
This is where you will find news about exhibitions, projects, events, other artists, travels, experimental work and sometimes things that I just enjoyed seeing! I hope you enjoy them too!
