making of the New Old World

It has been a bit of a slog lately but woke up yesterday with new thoughts. I did some reading of old friends, books that I constantly refer to, and took my camera for a walk. I played on my drawing tablet after much messing about trying to get it to work. Used the free app Krita which is similar to photoshop in its way of working and am happy with it, for now.

For the bursary that all Hatchery artists received, I used some of it on mentoring. I think it is the results of this conversation that helped me with my ‘refreshment’. Looking around me, it is all so familiar, the old world. it is now my intention to look with new eyes and hear with new ears. The poetics of the new old world will inform my new work.
