I have been commissioned to produce a new work for Castell03 at Caernarfon Castle.
The project ‘brings together visual artists, poets, musicians, scientists and historians to reflect on the theme ‘To The Sea’, which coincides with Visit Wales Year of The Sea 2018.’
I am collaborating with poet Rhys Iorwerth to create a response to the slate dias installed in the castle for the investiture of Prince Charles as the Prince of Wales in 1969.
The exhibition takes place from 15 to 24 June.

The exhibition of my Art House residency work opened on Wednesday.
The show consists of 133 ink drawings (selected from 250) produced during the residency. It runs until 9 March 2018.
Engine of Growth was installed for a festival weekend in Peterborough on 20-21 August. The installation invited people to vote on the fate of a sculpture in the park as a way of creating discussion around the treatment of sculptures in the collection. The weekend was very productive with nearly 400 votes cast and some fantastic, lively conversations.

The ‘Repair’, ‘Recycle’ and ‘Remove’ voting stickers for Engine Of Growth have arrived. The work is installed next week in time for the #PARKTALES festival on 20-21 August at Thorpe Meadows, Peterborough.
Not Here opened last night at Radiant Space, Plymouth.
My work for the show is Refuge, a large nest made from found materials bound together with a continuous line of rope. The work was partially built for the opening night and I will be completing the build over the next few days, inviting visitors to bring objects to be included in the nest.
Day 2 of Resistance install and despite the rain we got loads done.
EDIT: Due to unforeseen circumstances the work will now be installed during the week of 9 May, with an opening event at midday on 14 May.
Due to difficulties in getting permission to site the work at Swansea Castle my installation has been relocated to the National Waterfront Museum. Because of the move I have had to rethink the entire piece and have spent the last few weeks redeveloping the work. See the work page for more information.
It will be installed on the week of 4 April.
