The Basingstoke Project – November 2015

Over the next couple of months we will be in Basingstoke, painting and sketching and talking to people, gathering ideas and material for our first project together as Artikinesis – The Basingstoke Project.

The project will culminate in an exhibition of brand new artworks from all five artists, to be held at the Creation Space gallery of Proteus Theatre, Council Rd, Basingstoke, RG21 3DH.

We all have homes in or links with Basingstoke and Deane, and we look forward to sharing our insights and perceptions of this surprising town.

We’ll keep you posted as we go, but meanwhile, for your diary:

I am an experimental artist, so I love to mix media and am trying things out all the time. I get excited by lines, shapes and shadows in the grains of hewn wood, a bootprint stomped into a muddy track, or the ripple of some fungus growing on a rotten tree stump. I am obsessed by tracks and trails, the marks left in the ground by people’s and animals’ passing. I love abstract work, both to do and to look at. Organic or man-made shapes observed on my walks take on a life of their own and have their own story to tell, which will be different for every observer. My pictures invite you on a journey into your own imagination.
