Judy Chan

I was lucky today to find some cardboard art in my own town today, not far from my studio at Pedestrian Gallerypart of their Extraction show 8 – 14/4/14.

I was really taken by the piece  High Rises (2014) by Judy Chan who had crafted a giant piece that covered the floor and wall. Consisting of rectangular tubes representing high-rise buildings that keep popping up in Hong Kong to satisfying the growing need for families and businesses that need the space to work and live.

For me I was concerned with the structure of the piece, how it was constructed, a very professional and clean job. It almost comes alive, like mould or damp that just keeps on growing. There was a sense of great movement as the pieces were shooting out of the corner where they all begin.

It’s great to see cardboard being used so simply to and beautifully to create a powerful piece of work.

Studio Photoshoot

A few months ago I was contacted by a photography student who was building up a body of work for her final show at her college. Billie Patrick a photography student in Leicester College who is interested in the portraits of artist, contact my studio to work with artists in their spaces. I answered the request, inviting her to come to my studio space. Arriving with her assistant they both got to work, photographing me at work whilst I was completing my rolling stock’s construction that day.

I am more than happy to share her best pieces with you all. I wish her the best of luck as she begins her degree in Photography at Nottingham Trent.
