Fun Fun Fun!
During the month of January I took part in Fun A Day, where you do something fun every day. I wanted to explore and play with an idea with no defined outcome to see where it takes me. Adapting the ‘Five Currant Buns’ nursery rhyme as a starting point. I went on a journey and did some sketches of bakers shops, ink drawings, illustrations, patterns and then focused on creating a range of paper cuts of local shop fronts and all cool things they sell. I love local independent shops on the high street.
The exhibition opens on Friday 13th April at 7pm, and is on over the Saturday and Sunday from 10am – 7pm at Gallery space, 4th floor, WASPS Studios, Meadow Mill, Dundee, DD1 5BY. The exhibition will have an eclectic mix of projects that happened in January.
A few of the things I created during Fun A Day will be developed in the future, I can imagine a range of illustrations to a 5 Dundee Cakes in the bakers shop counting book. Doing the paper cuts allowed me to think about the positive and negative space and keep designs quite simple. I’ve been playing with these by adding colour and texture since January. Here are some test pieces
Some of my pieces will be for sale, please contact me directly firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text 07841423335.
