Commercial possibilities

In previous posts I have mentioned how tutors have said that my work would lend itself well to possibilities in retail products such as fabrics, tiles and so forth. I have decided that I want to keep my Harena Now work solely as fine art; I feel the message behind it will be lost if … Continue reading Commercial possibilities

Dale Chihuly – astounding glass art

I am surprised I was not aware of this artist until now. The glass art pieces he creates, alone and in collaboration with others, are simply stunning. They are everything I am imagining my Harena Now work could be. His website is an inspiration. The pieces he and his teams create from glass are awe-inspiring; … Continue reading Dale Chihuly – astounding glass art

Pricing plans

I spoke in my previous blog post about the challenge of learning how to best price my work. Although I have had exhibitions this year and attracted local media coverage, I am not recognised as an emerging artist in the wider photographic world. So where this leaves the value of my work is perplexing. I … Continue reading Pricing plans

Week 10 – reflection

I've been a tad side-lined this week as halfway through my husband broke his foot so I took a few nights away from my CRJ and project work to focus on him (and do all the chores/dog walking he has been doing to support me with my MA work schedule). But what I have thoroughly … Continue reading Week 10 – reflection

Non-fixed lumen printing with sand

As part of my Harena Now project work, I have been conducting more sand experiments with out-of-date Ilford black and white photo paper. The paler images shown below are the straight copies of the paper after I decided the 3-hour exposure would suffice, while the stronger colours of the others are created through Photoshop. The … Continue reading Non-fixed lumen printing with sand

Atelier NL is a design studio in Eindhoven. Lonny van Ryswyck is one-half of the duo behind the studio and their project, To See a World in a Grain of Sand.

Mike Perry – Tir/Mor (inspiration)

I have been receiving email info from Ffotogallery in Cardiff for sometime now, but one of its latest exhibitors has particularly stood out. Mike Perry is currently showing his work, Land/Sea or Tir/Mor in Welsh. It is described in the email as: Land/Sea focusses on the coastline and rugged landscapes of West Wales, where Mike … Continue reading Mike Perry – Tir/Mor (inspiration)

Gina Glover – environmental art

Through my research via GroundWork gallery, I discovered the work of Gina Glover. Her website description is as follows: Gina trained in Fine Art at Chelsea School of Art and in Photography at the University of Westminster. She co-founded Photo Co-Op in 1979 in Wandsworth, which in 1991 became Photofusion Photography Centre, based in Brixton.  … Continue reading Gina Glover – environmental art

Challenging perception

My attention was brought to an article today (thanks Daral Brennan via Falmouth Flexible Facebook group) about Mariah Robertson, who is part of the J. P. Morgan PhotoPlay: Lucid Objects show at this week's Paris Photo. It describes her as making "making photographs the hard way", i.e. without a camera. Of course, being someone who also makes her … Continue reading Challenging perception

Week 5 – reflection (1/2)

The main tasks this week have been to develop networking opportunities. At present, due to day job commitments, I don't often have the opportunity to attend events during week-day working hours so I have concentrated on other means of networking. Although I have a list as long as my arm, I stated that for this … Continue reading Week 5 – reflection (1/2)
