Inspired by Landscape - The Watershed Project

The official start of the Year 2 residency and highly appropriate that its April 1st since the trope of the Fool as an innocent vagabond associated with wilderness, new beginnings and the joy of discovery makes an interesting jumping off point for me and fits in with the approach I aim to take during the project.

I'm following on from Year 1 resident artist Sally Barker and author Char March will be taking on the role of resident writer from poet Andrew McMillan. Sculptor Sally has done some fantastic work with her photo montages so do take a look at her blog via the link on the right.

Inspired by Landscape is a 3 year project initiated by Pennine Prospects, a regeneration organisation, providing 3 artists and 2 writers with 40 day residencies to develop their own work and to encourage others to explore and enjoy the uplands of the South Pennines.
