I have been extremely busy with preperations for my TV shoot that I have been slightly neglectful of my readers on my various blogs. Skype and Facebook seem to be a dominant force where my work is concerned at the moment. Which is why I am so happy to say I will be working with the amazing Jett Vivere, the immensley talented artist and all round friend of mine on a personal collabirative project which is not only supported by the gallery but the team at Ten Image Professional UK branch in London.
We have both been feeling less than arty and very much out of the loop for a few months with only minimal make up work on my side and a heavy focus on the gallery (Phoenix art) on her side. That we felt the need to push the creative buttons and create something new.
So with that in mind we spent a fun afternoon over coffee discussng our plans and goals, choosing colours, discussing photographic potential as well as canvas remditions of our efforts and have decided to expand and work within her goggle series of paintings.
As one of my favourite peices in her work, its a huge honor to be working on the goggle series and doing something new and having a fresh take on this for us both, for m e its about expanding the horizons and moving into new ground for her its a welcome return to an old favourite and giving it a new spin.
As one of Scotland (and Europes) premier artists I am hugley flattered to be able to work with her and have secured another project with her gallery partner JP McLaughin, admittedly JP and myself did discuss working together first, unfortunately time has whittled away and he is unavailable at the moment so we are making that a part of the TV series.
Over the next few days I will be making a decided push toward having a rest, I do have a business/personal trip arranged in London and plan to relax a little over the next few days and recharge the batteries and really push myself to get this project going.
Excitingly this will be a part of the ongoing video for youtube and REga MAg which I contibute to, as well as a good portfolio piece with a contemporary edge.
