Gail Ritchie Contemporary Art
Working through an inherited archive of books, documents and photographs can be overwhelming. Where do you start and when does it end? What are you trying to say - if anything? These are issues I am engaging with just now. To bring the past into the present needs ( I feel) an intervention which adds to the narrative. Memory is passive and remembrance active - hence my pressed clay counters, made from dried poppy seed heads. A work in progress!
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!
