So that is my piece finally done for the auction. With all the other preparation I’ve put into this I hadn’t actually had much time to think about what I was going to submit. I always find whenever I try and make art for a purpose, it adds a different kind of pressure which more often then not makes me produce pieces that aren’t up to scratch. A highly irritating quality of mine.
So after three trial runs this is what I came up with. You just can’t go wrong with pen and paper. It allows me to be loose and fluid the way I am on canvas but on a far smaller scale.
So tonight we have our auction preview night, a week in advance of the actual auction. If you are in Newcastle today feel free to head down to the Gallery North Project Space at Northumbria University. Works will be on display from 6-8pm. We’ve got some great pieces and it’s all looking really exciting! Feel free to check out our auction website: http://nuartauction.tumblr.com/
