Just returned from the Eastern Himalayas, this is my first video about the trip. Mani stones are prayers carved in stone and are a form of land art I found particularly haunting and beautiful.
What does an artist do while manning a gallery all day? My answer is to create exacting dye-work for birds, butterflies and bees. It is easy to stop and talk to people, but they can feel they can look at art without my looking at them.
This is my last day St Ives so if you plan to come along, today is the day.
Cooled by the Atlantic and a flutter with butterflies. My current exhibition at the Salthouse Gallery, St Ives.
St Ives is so sunny that people are seeking shade and art in the Salthouse Gallery. I am cool and comfortable and looking forward to meeting all who visit.
My exhibition opens at the Salthouse Gallery, St Ives on Saturday 17th June 2017. You can find it in the heart of Downalong; Norway Square, St Ives TR26 1NB
It will be wonderful to see all of you who can come along. I shall be hanging the art on Saturday morning, but shall be ready to welcome you for the rest of the week.
A row of foxgloves waiting for their cliff-top home.
Why, I sometimes wonder, do I take on really complex subjects when I have a tight deadline. Foxgloves are fiddly. But then we all love them.
With an exhibition coming up in St Ives in less than two weeks I have turned my attention to a new coastal piece to replace work sold during Open Studios. Foxgloves are now in flower all along the coast. I have brought a fine specimen into my studio as they are also flowering generously in my garden.
'Huangshan with Clouds' is finished and on the wall. I was curious to see what reaction people visiting the studio during Open Studios Cornwall would have to this unfamiliar landscape and, happily, they love it. More details at http://amandarichardsonartist.com/content/huangshan-clouds
