A short video of me filming in the space

The exhibition reflects on my Romani heritage and our concept of place. I am interested in the commonalities we have as people, the need for a place of our own, family and food. With migration, changes in our working lives and increasing opportunities to travel, our certainty about who we are and where we fit in is unsure.

LV21 is less than 20 miles down the road from me so I couldn’t not go to see it! How lucky am I to be living where I do. I was one of the first visitors up the gangway this afternoon and chose to go today because they had a cafe survey about (diminishing) open spaces on the Hoo peninsua which is where I live as well as Cas’s exhibition. The bigger pieces are much lighter in weight than I expected them to be, especially as they are designed to be looked at from both sides, but hold some very poignant words. I was very much drawn to the display of vessels formed around the discarded beakers used by some of the migrants rescued from the English Channel and the shores of Kent.

A Sense of Place

Cas Holmes and Rosie James are both Batsford authors. Sense of Place is their first collaborative exhibition.

In this installation they embraced the opportunity to bring two bodies of work together which appeared to speak to each other about people and place.

Cloud Crowd and Shipping Forecast reflect upon the movement of people whether in a hurry for work, leisure or even in some cases forced to flee.

Travel and migration are part of human history. We saw the possibility of reflecting on this story by the interaction of these works.

The exhibition runs from 2-22nd June at B.T. Batsford Shop and Gallery

Art Textiles Made in Britain:Illuminate

​In 2023 I am thrilled to be taking part in Art Textiles: Made in Britain new show Illuminate which will be launched at the Knitting and Stitching Shows, Alexandra Palace, London, and later at Harrogate Convention Centre. Below is a detail of a new body of work in progress, ‘Glimmer’

That my exhibitions have been able to take place has been due to the generousity of my project partners and friends. Private views and talks have been held virtually where I have not been able to attend personally due to personal circumstances. Thankyou.
For further details of previous exhibitions and collaborations please see my biography on Axis Artists or on the Art-Work pages of this website
