Finally got to my blog post! I can share some great images and thoughts from the much awaited Transformations Exhibition. 30 creatives; poets and artists, from across the world reinterpreting Ovid’s classic text ‘Metamorphoses’,put on by the Artipeeps group from Cambridge, England, director Nicky Mortlock. My painting ‘The Circle Is Unbroken’ was on display there. It is my final response from Book VII specifically the Medea story. You can read about the development of the painting, and see supporting drawings on the archive of this blog.pic.twitter.com/QTpQEHTmyE
Here are some shots of the exhibition. Here’s my painting in situ with some of the poems alongside. The ‘cages’ used to display the work were fantastic. It meant you were not ‘sealed off’ from other people viewing the exhibition. This transparency really worked as an experience within the exhibition, especially when the live poetry readings took place. Here are the students from King Edward VII Academy Kings Lynn, on arrival at the show. They were great and really seemed to engage with and enjoy the work. Some took part in the poetry readings as well. I’ll share more shots on my next post.
