Gwyl Arall (another) Festival

Celf Gwyl Arall Art was a weekend art exhibition coinciding with the festival over the weekend of 23-25th of July. The exhibition took over a empty two floor shop on Bangor road in Caernarfon, N.Wales and displayed local established and emerging Welsh artists. My artwork, 100,000 was chosen and there was tv coverage of the exhibition opening which my piece got a 2 second show. Unfortunatly I wasn't able to go up but it felt good to be showing my artwork in my local area I grew up, plus my family and extended family went to support. Hopefully there will be images but for now I have stills from the tv programme.

Title: tictoc 2010
Materials: mixed media on khadi paper

'tictoc' originated from a quick angry emotional sketch I made while being 6 months pregnant. I then forgot about it until I started a new sketchbook and I scribbled it on to the pages. It wasn't until I was 5 days overdue I decided to create something using the sketch as the foundation and attempt to reconcile with the feelings I felt at that time in February and mix it with the emotions that were running through me while being overdue. Unfortunately I didn't get to finish it before my baby girl arrived but carried on afterwards still tuning into the feelings and emotions I felt before. The anticipation, the lack of control, the unknown, strange and weird.
