RIO'S FAVELAS AT THE NEW CRAFTSMAN, ST IVES, 2015
I’m currently exhibiting at the fabulous New Craftsman Gallery, St Ives http://www.newcraftsmanstives.com.
This new body of work is inspired by my visit to Rio de Janeiro last year to volunteer at the Street Child World Cup http://www.streetchildunited.org a charity that uses sport and art to change the lives of street children.
I work from photographs and memory. These images document the landscape of the notorious suburb, Cidade des Deus (City of God), and Vidigal Favela, illustrating how I have drawn on these for inspiration when making the vessels. You can read more at https://newcraftsmanblog.wordpress.com
