I am looking ahead to the 2017 Totally Thames Festival in September and Tide Line Thames is expanding. I am creating an installation of projected imagery for the Thames Tunnel Shaft of the Brunel Museum, with artist Tom Pearman below.
I have had the chance to access some technical help from Levin Haegele on the London Creative Network Programme, a mentoring scheme funded by the EU and SPACE London. In January, I exhibited a new sequence of images, Tide Line Composites, as projections for the LCN Showcase at Space Studios.
To make the Composites, I projected my photos of Thames architecture onto the surfaces of my Tide Line Thames paintings and photographed the resulting hybrid images. I then cropped and excerpted those images in Photoshop to create sets of 6 images in a grid – a fusion of painting, photography and projection. Here is Tide Line Composite 14.
And in breaking news... I have been invited by Canary Wharf Arts to extend my Thames project to create an installation of images which will be printed on large scale aluminium panels and installed in the Crossrail Place Roof Garden, a new public space at Canary Wharf. This installation also will be part of the 2017 Totally Thames Festival. I have wanted to try printing images on dibond aluminium panels for some time and now have a faublous opportunity to do so with this commission.
