I’ve just added a new section to the website. ‘Work In Progress‘ is exactly what it sounds like: a sneak preview of work under development. I’ve posted two rough edits from my ‘Edgelands’ project to get things started.

Brighton Undercliff Path, 2012
Brighton Marina, 2012
This year we opened our studio as part of the Brighton Artists Open Houses. This is an annual event running concurrently with Brighton Festival. This year there were over 200 Open Houses and approximately 1200 artists.
The Open Houses are an excellent way to reach a broad spectrum of the public. We had visitors from all over the world and with a wide range of art interests. It was fascinating to see the way different people engaged with the work.
My coal mining project, A New Topography of the Durham Coalfield, prompted numerous conversations with people whose relatives had worked down the pit.
Similarly Remains, which presents a series of cremation urns, provoked fascination and the occasional shudder. One visitor suggested that the sweet smell I detected while working with the urns could be due to Sugars of Lead. Further research indicates that so called sweet leads taste sweet rather than smell sweet, so the mystery is not yet conclusively solved.
I’m showing prints from A New Topography of the Durham Coalfield and a selection of my current work in progress.
Klara will be showing a queer selection of textile sculptures, screenprints and oil paintings. You can see more of her work at www.klara.co.uk
