Artist Residency @ Hut136 (August 2015) - People United - peopleunited.co.uk
A collaboration between artist/photographer Nicholas Godsell and artist/film maker Al Reffell
Al - “With passing of time comes transition - always - high tide to low - we are bounded to this passage of time, connected to this transitioning environment - working at ‘teatime’ for one week - day transitioning to night - twilight time - we are exploring these and other transitional spaces through mark making, staying with process, abandoning product, being curious about whatever shows up on the paper - investigation….and recording this process with time-lapse photography - marking paper, marking time.”
Nicholas - “Returning to the basics; the simple art of mark-making. A rekindled grounding in something familiar, yet slightly different. A new opportunity; working alongside another, taking our leads from one another. Engaging with the work, losing time, losing ourselves. Temporary inhabitants of a creative cave; a hut on the beach. The sea is our music, the situation our inspiration. Recording and documenting our successes and our mistakes, both large and small, in equal measure. Sharing a space, sharing a canvas, sharing an inquiry, sharing an experience."
