We have lots of new work to show as part of the Telegraph Hill Festival Open Studios 5-6 April 2014. We didn’t take part last year so there is a build up of two years of work by all three of us. There is painting, printmaking, sculpture, installation and photography – all loosely exploring themes about nature, wildness and human-animal identity. An installation in the tree house is a memorial to lost trees and forests. Brian has been using new monoprinting techniques, as seen in the flyer image. Megan is showing some of the work that was in her portfolio, which won her place at the BRIT school for September 2014.
There are lots of other studios and houses showing work, including the notorious Nunhead & District Municipal Museum and Art Gallery in Gellatly Road, and on Sunday afternoon, a Skate/Art/Music party in Telegraph Hill Park.
It’s the first day of 2013 and we have created a little platform for Beuysterous – creative actions for trees. Here’s a website that will promote a new opportunity for creative actions around trees every month. There’s also a Facebook fan page, and a Pinterest board
The first month – January – is a time for mulching and wassailing to trees. The second month – February – is Tree Love Week.
Please take part and share your inspirations.
Once again, in the revival of the ancient SE14 tradition, animals will stalk the streets on the winter solstice, the evening of 21st December 2012. Come to a workshop to make a headdress or costume out of withy, tissue and paint, on either 8th December at New Cross Learning, or on the 15th December in the Craft Room of the St Catherine’s Community Centre. Or you can just channel your inner animal. More details on the poster here.
It so happens too that the 21st December is, contrary to myth, not the end of the world, but the end of the Mayan long-count era of Macha (the era of selfishness) and the start of Pacha, the era of togetherness. So, a perfect day to celebrate our community and our togetherness with all living species.
Imagine what our world would look like; an abundance of biodiverse regions and communities living in harmony with our Earth. Imagine a world where our needs are met whilst ensuring future generations needs are met too. Imagine a world where we create our businesses from the premise that people and planet come first. This is a world where ecocide no longer exists.
