Art work in Residence

Sometime early during Oct 2005 I had a conversation with Mrs Phoenix - she had asked me where had we first met as she felt she had known me forever - in fact since 1985 at the birth of the Marsha Phoenix Memorial Trust in house Arts project. I had responded to a job advertising for a photography assistant - I became the project photographer and following that as arts worker and later Artist in Residence. I continue to run workshops to this day. I had no idea I would still be working here in 2006.

‘Portrait for an Archive’
Mrs Phoenix has often commented that she needs another forty eight hours a day as there is too little time for everything -(and I don’t think that sleep was included in the forty eight hours!) In ‘Portrait for an Archive’ I have duplicated Mrs Phoenix - giving her multiple selves, & giving expression through digital media. Each print is a unique one off design that is part of a body of work.

The function of the workshops are to develop, learn & enjoy creative skills both for personal and professional development in a relaxed and informal environment. Many of the pieces are worked on collectively.
Some of the young women will use the workshop as an extension of their studies, for others it’s a new area of interest & for some its time out. The workshops are provided in the relaxed and informal atmosphere of the living space within the home.
The workshop and resulting exhibitions give an audience a window into some of the skills developed. The work allows us to see some of the positive contributions that young people make in the community and also take into the world at large.
