He jumped in our red Nissan Almera
Fetched Nescafé Azera
Dust suspends in the air
A lounge he fettles
Then he gets back and vacs the dust before it settles.
When I was solo the vac was a no no
He feels home on the range it doesn’t seem strange to be cleaning the flue
As folks with fires do.
Though the subject vague Jo put a face to counting
Stop reflect think
You might change what your going to do next
Pex appeal what’s the next appeal
I wish I was more like you
You like me because I’m me
Scan to print and on electronic tablet
Nothing is exactly the same always evolving
Make a conscious effort to way things used to be
Photo shoot image trace & vectorise / black white to software
We got laser in the workshop 3ml Perspex pane
Get those love notes into the light
Nothing is worth anything if it’s easy
Sheet one 16 notes that’s how it’s going to be
Take heart press start
Bring those notes into laser light.
Black engraving Green to cut
Settings for success
Love notes in a tin
To get your piece of the jigsaw to fit
You need to cut out the right piece of the action for you
To make the jigsaw less of a puzzle
A picture emerges
Not as cold as Norway
But you could see your breath
“Rhubarb” she said were off to the pub
Pulling it out of yourself
Red acrylic spreads like butter
Darkest of umber
Red purple blue
Vibrates with emotion I hear it said
Something new for the exhibition stimulates new ideas
The space itself the canvas
Like an unfinished memory
She traced the building
With her finger
“It’s Wood Street”
Then she cried.
She danced there on D day.
Tough and gritty feeling thwarted
Laying on her bed
What you been up to pastel popper?
With sunlight in her bouffant
Thought and intention spilled out
From chalky depths
Jill presents a nostalgic image of herself and her sisters in their early years. This reflection on a childhood memory allowed Jill to work through trauma caused by the loss of her sister to cancer. The process of applying acrylic and oils on slate experimenting with laying is addictive in its quality. This intensive approach acted as a therapy. In using monochrome palette Jill believes a greater connection is made with the viewer and reflects the nostalgic feelings being explored.
