Delighted to have my work ‘Incidence’ selected for the ArtLacuna Prize.

The selection panel included Julia Alvarez, Sonia Boyce and Jamie Shovlin so that made it even more special to be included.

ArtLacuna is an artist collective space set up by Wimbledon College of Art MA alumni.

The lacuna, or lexical gap, represents a gap in translation, a place where multiple meanings are applied, where meanings shift and new interpretations can be made.

Great spot by the window. Also next to Jess Littlewood’s work which I am a big fan of.

Nice to meet up with old friends from previous exhibitions together – one of Euan G, Stewart’ s giant skulls here and also one of Hannah Williamson’s delicious tiny paintings.

Another favourite was the installation of 16 postcards by Holly Stevenson.

Tracey Payne’s installation in the back yard caused a lot of interest as it inflated and deflated (in the rain).

A familiar face from SHOW 2013 – Nicola Thomas had a couple of her black on black etched prints here.

A new graduate from the RCA Printmaking course, was really nice to meet her.

The Private View was really busy despite the awful weather and hidden gallery location.

Congratulations to Noemi Niederhauser who’s work appeared quite a quiet participant of the show, looking at her website I think she will put on a really interesting exhibition.

I have had a fabulous three weeks of inductions at the RCA. This was all about learning processes, getting to know the technicians and finding our way around the workshops.

The technicians are amazing, approachable and enthusiastic, we couldn’t have asked for a better team to support us.

As the indomitable Alan Smith summed up – it was all about the transference of knowledge.

There was a lot of knowledge to transfer.

So we have had a feast laid out before us and now we must eat as much as we can before it is all taken away again.
