Our first ever Art Trail, curated by Karen Turner and cave, took place between the 9th and 12th of July, working with over 20 local artists. As part of the Art Trail we held a Guided Tour, on Saturday the 11th of July, led by the fantastic artist Harmony Thyme. With thanks to Poly Sara and Wilfried Rimensberger for sharing some of their photos of the art in situ on the On Foot Guided Art Trail tour.

Although the Art Trail has now ended, below on this webpage you can still see an online exhibition of the works which were displayed.

From Sue:

I’m interested in historical photographic techniques. I made these by creating a digital negative and exposing to paper painted in Cyanotype solution to UV light. I love the pared-down images technique creates, especially when applied to close-up photography.

Cyanotypes made from photos in the Barbican conservatory from my tine as instagrammer in residence there.

Title: Pablo Born Through Frida

Apparently Pablo Picasso met Frida Kahlo once in Paris. One can only imagine the electricity in the room between the pair of artist giants. Picasso is famed for his misogyny and this portrait is to show him as being born of a woman (the ultimate reminder of the power of women) in this case born of Kahlo herself, surrounded by flora featuring the female form.

Title: pleasure and discomfort

Movement and the body’s relationship to created forms are presently the focus of my
practice. Currently utilising predominantly metal sculptural structures combined with the
physicality of my body as a basis for this exploration, I further alter these initial forms by
directly interacting with them in live interventions, therefore both challenging the idea of
finite sculpture and seeking an ongoing dialog between myself and the materials. Thoughts
of the balance between revealing and concealing- the need to be seen by the Other and the
need to be hidden – are also explored in these interventions, through which dialogues
between interior and exterior worlds are expressed via the manipulation of physical objects.

The interventions are of varying duration and never choreographed in order to maintain
spontaneity and connection with the environment.

Pat Hayward Lockdown sculpture 

Title: Sitting man

In the absence of a kiln I bought airdry clay. I have never used this clay before so made a couple of smaller figurative sculptures to test how this clay feels and moves. It’s great to use at home and I’m very pleased with the results and the final sitting man.

Medium: Airdry clay, stabilised, painted with chalk paint and wax finish. Mounted on a painted black plinth.

Title: Drawings

My drawings are part of an on-going body of work revolving around the theme of attachments. Emotional, physical and material attachments.  Inspired by the writings and works of Louise Bourgeois this series of 45 drawings was created with the attitude of “what will be, will be”.

Using stitch as a drawing tool to create the images and only allowing myself the exact amount of paper to start meant that any “mistakes” that occurred became part of the work. The irregularities in the stitch made the outcome more interesting.  Using this method helped me overcome my overwhelming obsession with erasing…

My aim is to develop a practise that evolves. Bringing together and engaging with family, friends and communities. (Making them as important as the piece itself).  A series of installations that use many craft forms, manipulating the transformative quality of crafting to create ephemeral, playful, extraordinary sculptural patterns and objects. I want to celebrate women’s creativity. Re-contextualising craft activities traditionally associated with domestic space.
