Watershed Revisited



A final exhibition of selected work by all the resident artists and writers who participated in the Watershed - Inspired By Landscape Project over the past 3 years will be on show at The Studio, Bradford 1 gallery in Centenary Square, Bradford Saturday 22 June to 24 August 2013.

I am hoping to give my huge charcoal drawings of reservoir valve towers another 'airing' but in a slightly different form. The space is a lot smaller than the giant room I had with writer Char March at Cliffe Castle, Keighley, and there will be work from the two other artists - Sally Barker and Simon Warner and two more writers, Andrew Mcmillan and Anna Turner. The exhibition is being curated by Lara Goodband and should be an exciting culmination of this award winning project.

This photo is one of my personal favourites, taken in the basement of Machpelah Mill in Hebden Bridge (my temporary studio courtesy of Trevor Smith). The sunlight reflected off the canal water and through the window somehow, echoing the window in the valve tower and contrasting with the blue light of the projected video of Upper Gorple Reservoir water.
