AIR Connect Residency in Cleveland, Ohio

I arrived in Cleveland at the end of April, excited to get stuck into living life as a full time resident artist for six weeks at Cleveland Print Room, a community photographic darkroom and gallery. I thought it was going to feel like a long time, but time passed by in a heartbeat, there was so much to do and see and think about. I met many awesome and generous people along the way, and had so much fun!

Of course, I made a lot of work, too. A whole new project. It culminated in a show in CPRs beautiful gallery, and an artists talk. I've come home inspired and with new work.

The residency definitely deserves more than one blog post, and I'm excited to tell you about places I worked and explored whilst in the USA. I thought I'd include some Cleveland adventure photographs here.

DJCAD Fine Art Degree Show 2015

The yearly Dundee DJCAD Degree show is always so fun, full of inspiration and a great, lively atmosphere. This year I was in it, as a model for Kirsty Dalton. It was an awesome experience and I felt really badass in that ensemble. :) Her prints and installation with beautiful patina were striking and I loved the re-used scrim for the costumes.

I liked a lot of stuff, but couldnt take my own pictures, So I foraged for some pics of the stuff that stood out to me on my walk around the fine art and APCP galleries.
