News update (Dated: 1st September 2022)

A quick update on latest news!

It was wonderful to bring Landscapes at Noon back to Flatford during May and June, alongside some new cyanotype works in progress. Amazingly over the month it was open we received 2,800 visitors to the show - meaning with last autumn's exhibition we reached approximately 5,000 visitors. Wow! Thank you to everyone who visited and to those who took time to comment - it was much appreciated.

If you missed it then our smaller installation of silk cyanotype works is still on show as part of the Recreating Constable exhibition at Christchurch Mansion, Ipswich - open until 25th September. Here the works are being shown alongside original Constable's and his Suffolk contemporaries. I was also delighted to have shared the project, alongside Laurence Harding, at a talk for the British Art Network's Landscape Group, which was hosting a day for curators and researchers at Christchurch Mansion.

June also brought some other exciting news as one of my cyanotype cloud studies - originally made at Flatford - was selected for this year's Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition. This year the theme was 'Climate' and it was great to be included a second time and to have my work included in one of the print rooms curated by Grayson Perry.

Opening later this month is the Letchworth Open at the Broadway Gallery - a celebration of artistic talent in Hertfordshire - and I'm delighted to be showing an experimental work, which highlights my interest in the photograph as an object and 'what makes a photograph a photograph'.

Finally, I was also awarded funding from the Arts Council England as part of Developing Your Creative Practice (Round 13), enabling me to dedicate time over the next 9 months to test and experiment more sustainable ways of working, as well as learn new skills in collage and experimental moving image. This is currently underway and I look forward to sharing some of my work in progress over the course of the next year.

News update (Dated: 29th May 2022)

It's been a busy few months, with lots of exciting project and exhibitions happening - here's a quick update on things happening so far this year!

First, I'm delighted that Landscapes at Noon, work created in 2021 as part of my National Trust & ECDP commission with Laurence Harding, is being shown again this year. Our large scale cyanotype installation on silk has been split this time across two key Suffolk venues, showing at Christchurch Mansion, Ipswich as well as returning to the National Trust Flatford.

At Christchurch Mansion, seven cyanotype works are included in the Recreating Constable exhibition, alongside original Constable's from their collection, and will be on show until 25th September. At the National Trust Flatford, a smaller installation sits alongside new, smaller works inspired by Constable's tree and cloud studies. This exhibition is open daily, 11-3pm until 26th June. We will also be running a cyanotype workshop at Flatford on Saturday 25th June.

In other news - in April, collaborative work created as part of my New Forest residency with WorkShowGrow last September was shown at the New Forest Heritage Centre, Lyndhurst.

I was selected by south London gallery Blue Shop Cottage in their Works on Paper 4 open call with some newly released cyanotype works from my project Where Land Runs Out, which focuses on the disappearing coastline at Shingle Street in Suffolk. I was one of 125 artists, where 500 works were selected from over 10,000 submissions. In addition, I was winner of the Blue Shop Cottage/WorkShowGrow WoP4 competition receiving funds to support my practice. The online exhibition runs until August, and some additional, newly released works have also been added this week.

I participated in Ways of Seeing: Green, at Bell House, Dulwich as part of Dulwich Arts Festival over the weekends of 14/15th & 21/22nd May. Initiated by Kim Thornton, five rooms in Bell House were each curated by a different curator. I was invited to exhibit some of my camera-less cyanotype works in the Lutyens Room, curated by Ky Lewis, alongside 8 other artists.

Finally, coming up in June, I'm pleased to be part of SVITLO, a fundraiser for Ukraine, curated by Kateryna Snizhko and Mira Matic, and hosted by Looiersgracht 60, Amsterdam. See here for information, with more to follow soon!

National Trust Flatford Commission - Hay Wain 200, A Bigger Canvas
(Dated: 9th July 2021)

I am excited to announce that Laurence Harding and I have been appointed as commissioned artists for the National Trust Flatford commission A Bigger Canvas, to celebrate the 200-year anniversary of Constable's iconic painting The Hay Wain. The commission will take place over the summer of 2021 culminating in an exhibition at Flatford in the autumn. As well as creating some new site based work we will be holding a series of pop up workshops for visitors and local community groups, and inviting the public to collaborate in the making of a large scale cyanotype installation piece.

"We are thrilled and honoured to have been selected for this exciting commission in celebration of the 200-year anniversary of Constable’s ‘The Hay Wain’. Inspired by Constable and the landscape at Flatford we will be using a range of experimental, historic and sustainable photographic techniques to create a series of new works, including a large-scale participative community-based installation. We are really looking forward to working with the ECDP and National Trust over the next few months, as well as engaging with visitors to the site, offering an alternative way to interact with Constable’s work and the location in an accessible, fun and creative way.”
Laurence Harding & Liz Harrington.

This commission is made possible through a commission from Essex Cultural Diversity Project supported by Arts Council England, in partnership with the National Trust.
