After such a long period of preparation and anticipation my exhibition finally opened on Friday evening. We gathered in the beautiful market town of Ruthin in North Wales, put our colours on and walked down the hill. I realise that after several days of looking so closely at the details of the show I found it almost impossible to have any real sense whether it was a ‘successful’ installation or not…however my wonderful gang of friends assured me it was indeed successful. Yipeeeeee….
The following day I gave a talk in the gallery to about 60 people and it was the first time I had done a talk in-the-round so to speak. Like a strange sort of solo performance which involved going into some detail about the various processes and pieces on display.
I now feel like a certain hurdle has been jumped, in a good way, which can make way for another 16 years of new work and exciting collaborations. The list of people to thank for their help and support is endless…so for now, for here; I shall just say that you know who you are!
The show is up untill the 15th January 2012…so please do go and have a look if you find yourself passing near by.
