MUSEUM AND GALLERY HOARDINGS
In 2013 I was invited to carry out a project at Da Wang Cultural Highland, China. My project focused on the question:
How do traditional Chinese artistic values like beauty in order & tranquillity stand up
in a modern economic super power?
The residency culminated in an international exhibition,
where i exhibited two
paintings based on this question.
I worked with the Charity Sustrans to deliver arts projects that engage the local community and encourage use of sustainable transport.
These activities included temporary art along the National Cycle Network, working with schools to create a piece of public art and collaborating with a mural artist to increase use of a cycle route
