Abstract

This was an exhibition curated by jointly by the University of Chichester and the Ironbridge Open Air Museum of Steel Sculpture, UK.

The Otter Gallery has a collection C20 British artists including Henry Moore, Patrick Heron and Graham Sutherland. The exhibition was a 2 person exhibition with the American sculptor, James A Wade Jr. My contribution was 24 sculptures and 6 digital prints. The exhibition was a key dissemination point of a period of fine art practice research; extending previous work based on journeys in Landscape. The research addressed new approaches in relation to scale and materials in sculpture revealing the methodological approaches in engagement with actual landscapes in association with the WALK research group at the University of Sunderland.

A new direction was taken in the way the journeys by foot were mapped and recorded by date and companions. Routes from satellite images and maps provided information for templates cut by computer aided design and manufacture. Dissemination was via:

1. The work itself exhibited in: The Otter Gallery, University of Chichester 7.12.2012 – 27.1.2013.

2. An associated 40 page publication “Surveying Landscape” with a foreword by Pam Brown Director of the Ironbridge Open Air Museum of Steel Sculpture and an essay by Sam Cornish. The publication is a full catalogue of the exhibition and contains full colour images of all my exhibited work.

3. The sculpture “River Wear (Blue Glass)” was exhibited at the ICA Gallery London as part of the City of Sunderland’s Launch of its creative Industries strategy October 2010.

The supporting portfolio contains images and details of all work exhibited and the associated Publication.
