two houses

Two houses = two stories.

The white chalet is a time-teller (a clock which no longer works), some houses light up and are welcoming in the darkness. They are wired even though dinosaurs hide on the roof.
The dark house is woven and embroidered – there is a golden fish and a broken heart – in Swedish it tells us that loneliness is at least containable…

– such is life and sometimes we cannot choose.

Continuing with the plan to get more work out there in places other than galleries, here’s some New Site Specific work made for a local coffee shop – smaller oil paintings made on raised stretchers, the walls in the shop are a really beautiful warm grey colour, hopefully they will be accepted, if so I’ll give them a shout out here :)

Bermondsey Art Trail

If you’re in central London on the 11th. July, how about supporting this event!

Really pleased to be included here. For once we didn’t need to explain anything, we just sent our site info to the Bermondsey Art Trail and they liked what we do http://www.arthouse1.co.uk/the-bermondsey-art-trail.html and we have one of our videos included in a screening at the Shortwave Cinema in Bermondsey Square.

Breeze Creatives CIC and Vane, have been granted access to Old Shire Hall in Durham for a limited time, to host four very special events that aim to showcase some of the best creativity in Durham, Newcastle, Sunderland and the surrounding areas.

As part of this series of events taking place, on Friday 15th August for one night only we are staging a free night of film, video and moving image work by a selection of filmmakers and artists from throughout the region and beyond. Over a dozen rooms throughout the Grade II listed Old Shire Hall will be turned into screen rooms to showcase a diverse range of work.

Not only is this a chance to see some exciting up and coming filmmaker’s work, but also a chance to look around the splendid Old Shire Hall, which has been inaccessible to the public for several decades. Old Shire Hall is a Grade II listed building situated in the heart of Durham City Centre. It was built in 1895 as the County Hall, and was used as such until 1963 when it was bought by the University of Durham as a home for their administration. Old Shire Hall has particular significance as this is where the first all Labour County Council was assembled in 1909.

Artists and filmmakers showcasing their work on the night include: Ruth Siddals, Beth Ross, Tim Neath, Peter McAdam, Ponor-Janczak, Klaus Pinter, Sean Burn, Kayleigh O’Keefe, Letizia Binda-Partensky, Sheryl Jenkins, Roberta Orlando, Melanie Menard, Lucia Schweigert, Nicola Joanne Carter, Huw Andrews, Fin McMorran, Allie Litherland, Anna Flemming, Amelia Crouch, and Stu Herring.

Free admission with pay bar.
