Project summary:

I hope to expand on an existing practice which incorporating found stimuli, chance and by-product, looks to examine the roles and relationships assumed within the creative act.  

My current studio endeavours often utilise the found object in relation to the expanded field of painting.

Throughout this residency I would look to compliment this way of working with new experimental methods which echo and reflect my topic of interest. Over the years I have been cataloguing marks seen in every day life, be it a scratch on a car, a fingerprint on a door handle or a spill of paint on the floor. I would love to bring these traces of the everyday into a new body of work, printing and reproducing these marks and in-turn interrogating my role as the artist. This project has been building in the background alongside my practice, waiting for an opportunity to utilise facilities such as those at Derby and be fully realised. I would also welcome the freedom granted by the upgrade in scale of workshop facilities, as the size and scope of my current studio practice is somewhat limited by what I have available to me. 

I would relish the chance to work alongside students and offer my knowledge and advice in pursuing a career in art during and beyond their studies. From creating your own opportunities, integrating into the local scene and exhibiting, as well as realistically balancing a practice alongside work. It would be a valuable experience which I’m sure would benefit myself as much as students. 

Beyond practical aspects of the residency the opportunity to undertake a period of focused research in the facilities and engage in Derby’s art scene on a wider scale is enticing as I currently reside in a neighbouring city.
