Polesden Lacey, National Trust, Artist In Residence 2016
I was selected as "Artist in Residence" at Polesden Lacey on 2nd and 16th May 2016.
I studied the cottage in the vegetable garden and the iris garden which I feel are linked by the cupids arrow in the sundial/sculpture. The arrow appears to come from the cottage. The irises reminded me of a 1000 fallen arrows of love, stuck in the ground.
I am finishing the painting of the cottage to go with the painting of the irises.
"WWW - Wonder, Witness, Worship" 2016
Monday 28th March - Sunday 3rd April 2016 10am-5pm
Denbies Wine Estate, Dorking
Wonder - The practice of drawing and painting from direct observation increases our perception and sense of awe and wonder of the world.
Witness - We bare witness to the light of the world, care-full-y recording our perception of the here and now.
Worship - By offering our attention (love) to the subject we worship and show gratitude for life to our god.
We can marvel at the World Wide Web, but it can also be a distraction from our physical realm. We should remember to Wonder, Witness, Worship and not spend all our days surfing the virtual reality of the WWW.
Paintings, drawings, sculpture and ceramics by Eric Barfield and friends of the Ericaceous Art School and Studio. Discover the wide range of art courses on offer at the studio.
