Private viewing on the 3rd of June
Marketplace Studios, Stockport, Manchester
My first solo exhibition.
The basis of all of my work is rooted in fact or folklore so I thought for the exhibition I would exaggerate these elements. I am incredibley excited to present my new range of paper cut sculpture and kinetic paper cut sculpture all inspired by birds, and the science and myth that surrounds them, in my first solo exhibition.
"With over 9,000 different species, found in every corner of the world, these incredible creatures outnumber us 40 to 1. Rich in astonishing fact and captivating folklore, from the smallest bird to the largest, and even birds of mythology. There really is so much more to birds than meets the eye.
Using paper-cut sculpture, I present some of their stories to you."
GNCCF - Manchester. 12 - 15 October
Inspired by the Japanese gardens at Tatton Park I created a kinetic sculpture depicting the Japanese Crane. I also displayed a collection box automata piece from last year which collects money for the National Trust. Inspired by their work bringing the large blue butterfly back from the brink of extinction the piece has butterflies than move when the viewer adds money. The National Trust also help look after Tatton Park.
This exhibition was a collaboration with Tatton Park and several other talented designer/makers from Manchester School of Art.
The exhibition is open at Tatton Park, Knutsford, from 22nd April til the 17th May.
