Tonight We Fuse

Tonight is the opening of FUSE – an exhibition at Access Space, Sheffield, that places 9 artists from 3 cities – Sheffield, Liverpool and Nottingham – in one exhibition under a common theme.


FUSE is a wholly positive and dynamic exhibition which aims to initiate meaningful relationships and collaborations with sets of artists that otherwise may not be given the chance to meet. In the spirit of forging such connections, the theme for the exhibition is simply ‘fuse’ which each artist may interpret however they wish. Indeed, the very act of inserting artists into one space is in itself a response to the theme.

I hope you can join us tonight for the opening. Many of the artists will be on hand to chat about their work, I will provide a talk explaining how we arrived at the exhibition, and there’ll be refreshments available. All welcome!

Preparing for Perfume as Practice

6 perfumes made, 8 to go! I’m almost halfway through preparations for my latest Perfume as Practice exhibition, which begins on Wednesday 30th November at Bank Street Arts, Sheffield. Intuitively, I sense that the perfumes I have made feel more refined and coherent than previous perfumes. And the fact that the perfumes are assigned to a fragrance family adds an insightful dimension to proceedings. Each perfume portrait, while different, possesses a commonality with other portraits by virtue of sharing a woody fragrance.

The open evening of Perfume as Practice AW16 is on Saturday 3rd December from 6pm at Bank Street Arts, Sheffield. I hope you can join me for chat, drinks, my artist talk and a highly scented atmosphere!
