tight squeeze

i'm astounding the new neighbours with my ability to squeeze an impossible amount of art stash into my new studio
[shed]
in what is turning out to be the most protracted move
ever.
At the moment I'm
'installing'
my favourite materials for making things;
fabric,
paper,
weird objects,
more chopped up vintage tins than i can surely ever use,
paints,
glue,
stickers,
ink pads and stamps,
a whopping collection of papers,
wool and knitting / crochet / french knitting paraphanalia, sketchbooks (we are talking zillions),
canvases
..........the list is endless.........
later,
when the last few spaces in the new place are up for grabs....artwork such as
these below
will be vying for their place
.....it'll be good to let go.....

You are busy! Look forward to seeing the new work in the new studio

Anne said...

Sometimes I think having a small studio is a blessing. It forces you to prioritize and keep only the really really good stuff and to send the rest to a new, good home. Have fun! :-)

nice to meet you Mandy - love ur blog by the way.

Rosie - I think it will be a while before I have time to do much art. I'm hoping over the summer........

Anne - I think you are right....I'm learning all about the prioritising thing and right now things for making art with are higher up the list than artworks i have created in the past!

good inspiration, my cupboards are bursting with crap I hoard for a zillion ideas for stuff to make in the future.. till it feels squashed and overwhelmed. Time to prioritize.

well, kate, i can just imagine that it's going to be jam packed in there. i hope you take a pic when it's all ready. and maybe show us which of these beauties gets to go on the wall.

Lost luggage - these are some textile pieces I did years ago. We had to do zillions of monochrome drawings and then enlarge tiny areas of them and produce a textile. I decided to produced a series.

lynne - when i take some photos to show you - i think jam packed will have to be the title of that post! Wall space? What wall space?!! There'll be no space :o))

Chris said...

holy moly! I can't believe I don't have these!! These are so cool. Your space is going to be all cuddly, isn't it? I look forward to the zillion pictures you're going to upload for us.
