Spurn Point – Artist in Residence

I was Artist in Residence at Spurn National Nature Reserve, East Yorkshire during 2012. Over a six-month period I engaged with and responded creatively to the unique landscape of Spurn. The body of work I produced during the residency included two large art quilt pieces (Spurn Cloth 1 & 2), works on paper (rust prints with collagraph) and a series of artists books. All of these included marks and prints made using found objects from the site. The residency culminated in an exhibition weekend in the old lighthouse at Spurn on 21-23rd September 2012 and was followed by a gallery tour throughout 2013.

An 80 page book Textures of Spurn was published to document the residency with my images and diary extracts. A slide show documenting the development of the project can be viewed here. More information about the project and the gallery tour can be found on the residency blog.

This project was in partnership with Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and was supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
