Brocket Hall, a stately home near Welwyn Garden City, surrounded by parkland and two golf courses, was the venue for an exhibition of several of the Digswell artists in 2018. Myself, Jane Bottery, Julia Holt and Kirke Raava were invited to show some of our current work. The exhibition was housed in the golf club, which is the busiest part of the estate. I showed four pieces, all geometric reliefs made of of highly reflective aluminium elements.
Ninety-nine Corners Turned  – aluminium on painted board, 50cm x 50cm, framed and glazed.
Eighty-Five Corners Turned  – aluminium on painted board, 50cm x 50cm, framed and glazed.
All the pieces really shone in the sunlight. The combination of reflections and shadows was very striking.
Turning Fibonacci’s Corners  – aluminium on painted board, 50cm x 50cm, framed and glazed.
The pattern in this work was based on a Fibonacci spiral, similar to that in a sunflower, and again reacted beautifully to the changing light.
Three Circles Turning  – aluminium on painted board, 50cm x 50cm, framed and glazed.
A smaller composition with prime numbers of aluminium elements arranged in three concentric circles.
A second exhibition, with talented printmaker/artist Suman Kaur from my MA group, of reliefs and 2D work is taking place at Edge Grove School, near Aldenham, Hertfordhire. The private view was very well attended by students, parents and staff from the school. Edge Grove is a prestigious, independent boarding and prep school and the Head of Art, Diana Evans, another University of Hertfordshire MA alumnus, invited Suman and I to show our work and talk to students and parents.
I dont have photos from the exhibition but I showed four new reliefs and a couple of older works.
I have a larger work, with about four hundred aluminium pieces on a ground 120cm x 120cm, under construction. I hope to show this early in the new year. Location to be decided.
