Happy New Year!

My resolution is to try and make my “Jenny Meehan Artist’s Journal” postings shorter and sharper, but I have failed already.  I like to stuff lots of little snippets in, and never manage to orchestrate a well rounded and well formed piece of writing…  However, I also work on the premise that readers would just shimmy down quickly and read what they personally found of interest, rather than read every little part.  The joy of skim reading!  Even easier on a phone, scrolling down quickly.  So the excess is easily trimmed off, and I may ramble on free of the worry that I might be less than interesting.  This is a great liberty… Someone speaking in another context like a church or meeting knows their listener will have to endure  the whole, regardless of how much it really meets their interest.  They may nod off, or go for a daydream… Pulled back only by a sense of duty and not wanting to disrespect the effort that may have gone into the speaker’s speaking.   With this thought in mind, my long and broken titles may be a good idea…You have each little subsection labelled and no more.  Hit and miss as you will.

A little plug for this…

I have three artworks in the exhibition below which looks like it is going to be well worth a visit.

“Goethe’s Delight – Liquor Silicium”

“Goethe’s Delight – Liquor Silicium” is back from being exhibited at “The Orange Tree” Theatre in Richmond Upon Thames.  I’m rather fond of it… Still.  Good sign.   I mixed up pigments with a light creamy coloured Keim Soldalit paint, which has a wonderful matt surface, and really reflects light very well indeed.  On board properly prepared the Keim Soldalit works very nicely and I have conducted various tests over the last few years with the Keim Soldalit being mixed with various other substances…though not technically correct, I cannot resist trying.  I made some interesting pastels.  They work reasonably well.   However, Soldalit is  best left by itself with only the addition of pigments, which have to be alkaline resistant.  I have tried it out on different substrates, and have got quite a feel for it now…    I haven’t exploited  it anything as much as I intend to.  The Soldalit was much easier to use than the Beeck mineral paint on the Trafalgar Junior School Mural…  While this seems ages ago, I remember the consistency being easier to manipulate.

Here is “Goethe’s Delight – Liquor Silicium”.

To my thinking, it is a celebratory kind of work, expressing the delight of discovery.

I have just painted an oil painting on hardboard, primed and then coated with Keim Grobb, with oils.   It was an interesting surface to use, really soaking up the paint and giving a very matt surface with some texture.  In theory it should be fine…though I wonder if a layer of isolating varnish, maybe something just light, like a retouching varnish, may have been a good idea, between the Keim Grobb and the oil?    On the other hand, I like the very matt finish, and maybe this would be lessened, pretty much ruining the point of using the  Keim Grobb in the first place.   Well, let’s give it some time…It is an experiment.   It has a great texture too, as well as a casein like feel.  Drinks the paint.  Much nicer than an acrylic primer or gesso, more absorbent.  Very light reflective, which helps the colours to sing, loudly.   Will post up image soon, still in incubation of thoughtfulness right now!

Recovery Exhibition at the Institute of Mental Health, Nottingham

This is still running.  Here are a couple of images which include my two paintings “Pink Girl” and “Bandage Box”

I really  like the painting on the left of the image…Looks amazing. Will need to take a look and see whose it is.     My two are on the right of the image.

Winter Tasks

Sorting out work which has been piling up in cupboards and drawers.

I don’t take as many photographs as I used to, but still like working on the occasional digital image.   Affordable digital C- prints are good to offer to people who don’t have, or want, to buy an original painting and are so easy to produce.  I really need to get my Photobox Gallery facility sorted out so that people can buy these online, but it is one of those jobs I always successfully manage to avoid.  I am much more interested in pushing new work ahead rather than selling prints of past work!  If you do want an affordable print of something, do contact me and let me know what kind of thing you are looking for though, because though I haven’t gotten around to putting work online, I have a lot of photographic and digital imagery available.

I have been organising past work and taken a few more images so I can build up an illustrated catalogue/record for easy reference, and, for easy location, as there is a need to store things in several different places, and this can make finding particular paintings or prints a little tricky!

Brendan Carroll 

I am also having plenty of time to review and reflect on paintings past/those still in progress.   Which made reading this article by Brendan Carroll very suitable for the season.   Brendan Carroll writes most insightfully on the importance of time and reflection, on asking questions of your painting and seeking to relate it to other paintings in a way which may add light to being able to examine what one is doing.  Having experienced myself recently a certain sense of tiredness and boredom with a lot of the paintings I see (thankfully marked out here and there with paintings which do assert themselves in interesting ways), it was a pertinent read.  Also, maybe I am  experiencing a feeling of having seen the same thing (in different flavours) far too many times before,  and it has been easy to feel discouraged and disappointed with the way that painting appears to be  pushing forwards.  However, this may just be my own personal low mood…  I know there is lots of exciting stuff out there, I meet it sometimes, and it encourages me.  Also, I think that these “troughs” in my own creative mood are natural and good, but probably colour my vision in a little of a negative way!

I like Brendan’s challenge  and I think it is timely.  We should maybe make sure we keep the bar raised and keep our own expectations high.  If a wet painting “just does”, then it is not doing enough.  I personally feel each and every painting should push new ground and dig into the old at the same time.  But I guess it is not surprising that production rather than contemplation should maybe have taken centre stage, due to our culture which is so materialistic and production orientated.  And sometimes it may be a simple matter of producing a set or series, or body of work which looks good together.

Menier Gallery “Free Painters and Sculptors”

“Without Boundaries”  Exhibition

Free Painters and Sculptors
Monday 2 – Saturday 7 December 2013
The blurb…

“Without Boundaries is the first Open exhibition that the Free Painters and Sculptors have held in many years and are delighted to welcome new artists to exhibit with this long-established society at the Menier Gallery.

The exhibition title Without Boundaries is staying true to the founding principles of the organisation, allowing artists true freedom of style and expression. This exhibition will feature a variety of contemporary paintings, prints and sculpture from a competitive selection of 40 established and emerging artists.”

My visit to the Free Painters and Sculptors in December took me to this interesting sculpture:

Thank you to Zoe, for kindly letting me include images of her work here on my blog.  Take a look at her website, it is very interesting and exciting art working.

Viewing the work was made perfect for me by the small paper sign “Please Do Not Stroke The Sculpture”.    The calling out, each tentacle, with it’s nipple like end, reaching towards you, calling out to be touched, desiring you to touch it, needing you to touch it… And yes, more than touch… to stroke it, because there was not one, but many, crammed together, like some needy, but equally assertive, emotional…object?  Being?  Maybe between the two!  ?  How often have we felt so prickly, so defensive, and yet been so soft, knitted together and vulnerable at the same time?

What a delight.  The small paper sign just brought this little bit of conflict into the experience, which kind of made a little tension there, for me, which felt just right!

I always find sculpture so much more engaging than painting when I visit exhibitions lately.

Gosh, as usual,  my blog is a mass, even a mess of, little bits. Piecemeal.  Piecemeal fashion!

 Christian Spirituality – For Reflection

Christ has no body now on earth but yours,

no hands but yours,

no feet but yours,

Yours are the eyes through which to look out on Christ’s

compassion to the world,

Yours are the feet with which he is to go about doing good,

Yours are the hands with which he is to bless people now.

       

        St Teresa of Avila 1515 –82

Poem for “Awakening”

Wow, in all the sorting out of December, I found this poem.  I wrote it for the rethinkyourmind competition.  Oddly, I got an email back about my poetry entries saying that they were off the topic…??  The topic being “With good mental health I…”   Not sure why this was counted as being off topic myself, but never mind.  Such is poetry I guess.  I would have thought that awakening, opening your eyes and your self to reality, was a very good indication of good mental health.    I had my painting “Awakening” up on the wall at the time, and hence, the title of the poem was taken from the painting, which inspired it, or nudged it into existence, at least!

Awakening – Jenny Meehan

Awakening

I can carry

a thought through thick and thin. Stop

by choice, not only when falling. Hear

my heart beat

to see new beauty. Speak

that I may be more

than dusty darkness, or a gap between others.

Now I hold

my inner light:  Lift it high. I  bring myself outwards.

I carry treasure, revealed in unexpected places.

Glitter and gold?  Yes, I have plenty – Both the stars –

which always hung  in the night, and the sun

which persisted in rising, even though I would rather sleep.

Yes, I have reason to move forwards.  I have life within and life around

I have colour, texture, and the ground is not so steep.

Jenny Meehan 2013        Keep fiddling with it, so in progress.  Interesting to see the changes I make.


Art and Spirituality

I don’t like to part the two words…there is no parting in my mind.   The wonder of creation is the spiritual made flesh and the making of an artwork is a most wonderful way of  being.  It is prayer, it is silence and speech (well, language…) together, working.  It asks only for our attention, our participation, our giving of a small amount of time, and a willingness to enter into the experience of looking (or listening).  The experience of looking is so much more than an external, assessable matter.  It is allowing oneself to be permeated with the materials, colours, presence of the work.  Sometimes the connection and encounter is easy, even instant, sometimes we meet easily a precious experience which can add richness to our life.    Praise our Creator God, that S/He  felt such love to bless us with such creativity, wrapped into our spirits and bodies, with love.

(Note, as a woman, it matters a great deal to me to identify God as not “He” as is convention, but as both male and female in description… a necessary, yet clumsy expression, of our Maker.      God is described as many things..ie “a rock”, yet of course God is not actually a rock, just as God is not a man or woman, apart from Christ, of course. (If Christ wasn’t a man in his time, he would have never have been allowed to do anything, I shouldn’t think!!!!)

I tend to spend a lot of time at this time of year reviewing past work, which is very important to do, because looking back at what you have done with some distance between you and your work, you see things you didn’t, and, thankfully, sometimes you recognise something which quite clearly points the way forward.  Last year, for the first time, I did some painting in a series.  Not in terms of the subject matter, but simply just the format (50x70cm), substrate (canvas) and paint (acrylics).  This was worth doing, quite simply because it gave me a collection of work which generally hangs well together.  The additional factor of using  some pre mixed colours across the thirteen paintings brought a connection between the works which is useful if they need to be hung together, which they were when up at Alliance Healthcare.  I didn’t find that working this way took anything special away from the individual works, which all developed along their own path very independently.

A new venture for 2013 is some women’s painting tuition which I will start in February.  It’s been in my mind for a while, and I think I should use my Post Graduate Teaching Certificate in combination with what I have learnt over the last seven years or so.  One to one painting tuition can be very expensive, so a small group setting is more accessible for the majority of people.  I plan to structure it in a fairly informal way, with teaching points based on peoples individual needs.  There might be some whole group teaching if there is a shared interest in a particular problem or subject, but I want to utilize the character of a small group (maximum 4) to enable people to develop in their own directions in a very focused way from the outset.  I’m very much looking forward to this, because I loved teaching when I taught, and the mural at Trafalgar reminded me how much I enjoy it.  I don’t want to waste what I have. I have  one group starting in February, and hope to add another session later on in the year if other commitments allow.  If you are interested in joining an adult painting and drawing class at some point, let me know.  The classes will continue to be in the daytime and for women only in the immediate future.

I have also joined KAOS (Kingston Artist’s Open Studios) and it’s really lovely to get to know other artists in my geographical area, something I have meant to do for ages.  Here’s the website:  http://www.kingstonartistsopenstudios.co.uk/

Looking forward to West Dean soon, for some life drawing, which is hard work but very worthwhile.  I cannot afford more than a weekend course at West Dean now, so I intend to make the very most of it.  I think I might need to give up on the idea of returning to West Dean for a few years, because though I consider the continuation of my training essential, there are many other demands on our finances, and other needs are also to be considered.  But to have an opportunity for some concentrated time with drawing is long overdue for me, and I am very much looking forward to some hard work.  The problem with working mainly with abstraction for a while is that there is no need to really study external subjects with such intent, and direct observation, while it appears restrictive in one sense, in reality is far from restrictive but opens up new and exciting possibilities which can only come from the outside.

I will certainly be going along to see this free exhibition at the British Museum:  http://www.britishmuseum.org/whats_on/exhibitions/bubbles_and_bankruptcy.aspx?utm_source=enewsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Dec2012&spMailingID=40798212&spUserID=MTY0ODIwNDUzOTgS1&spJobID=173607659&spReportId=MTczNjA3NjU5S0.   Call me a prophet of doom, but I think that this financial crisis/downturn/whatever is going to last a very long time and quite possibly get worse, and it is going to take/make a very radical shift for most people in terms of values.  We have been saturated in what I will playfully call “materialist esteem” ; something that will caress and love you AS LONG AS YOU CAN PAY FOR IT.  I whimsically thought yesterday of what life would be like without advertising, and while it would probably be harder to get hold of what you wanted, it may also be true that you may not really want it anyway.  How much of our desire is created by external influences which tell us that “THIS or THAT is what we need?”  Fascinated, as I have been for some time, by the idea of using materials traditionally utilised by advertising,  ie PVC banners, Foamboard signs, etc. I’m now working on my next solo exhibition “Signs of the Times” which will mainly consist of some recent abstract prints expressing small phrases/actions/emotions, for example “Putting Your Point Across”  “Relaxing Walk” “Irritation” etc.  Just the simple things.  No instructions.  Nothing to “live up to”.  Nothing much to think about.  Just visual experience to relate to, however you want.  No pressure.  I let the viewer know what the work meant to me in the title…I have a pet hate of “untitled” work, (if it is called that intentionally), and not just because the artist hasn’t made up their mind, (or maybe not even thought it worth a title). Things deserve a name.  Sometimes more than one.  It can change.  There’s no rule against it. As long as it rings true. As long as it really does relate.

Here is some of the work.  It is available as prints in various forms, including Digital C Prints, Poster Prints, slightly more expensive Giclee Prints, and some very nice quality affordable Ink Jet Prints on Bond Paper.   Contact me at j.meehan@tesco.net if you would like to buy one.

Just got the month for my next Cornerhouse Community Art Centre Exhibition, and it is June.  So I will be showing some of the above there I expect.

I digress. Joyfully.

Back to the current Financial situation.  I look back nostalgically on my photographic artwork “Don’t Bank On It – Still Life ” which was selected, I am very pleased and grateful to say, for exhibition at Pallant House Gallery in Chichester as one of the works on show as part of their Open Art Competition: the “Pallant House/St Wilfrid’s Hospice Open Art Exhibition. What a long time ago that was!  But I still feel a little sense of achievement, having had some work displayed there.  It’s always encouraging when someone chooses to exhibit your work.  It’s not the reason for doing it, but it does help to know that lots of people are able to see it, because let’s face it.  There’s not much pleasure to be had from a load of artwork stuck in a cupboard.  The spider’s might enjoy it. I am not sure if moths like paintings. Do they? Or does the paint put them off?

Here is “Don’t Bank On It – Still Life”, which I am still happy with, so it seems to be standing the test of time.

Had a look around the London Art Fair.  I found myself drawn to every Ivon Hitchens and Alan Davies painting in the building, which made me smile.  Nothing else seemed as interesting to me as their work.  Not on that day, anyway!

I’m getting quite irritable at my own lack of painting, but I’m needing to sort out some domestic matters, which have to be done.

I like the Mall Galleries (Mall Galleries, The Mall, London, SW1) very much.  It is a lovely space, doesn’t feel cold (I mean in the emotional sense!) and I very much enjoyed the exhibition “The British Scene” which runs from 24th January to 16th February.  This is well worth a visit.  Works which I enjoyed the most: Melvyn Petterson “Hainton Track Snow”; an etching which demonstrated a wonderful match of subject matter to medium…Even the tiny specks against the white rang true in terms of depiction, yet, only there in chance, however, as in reality, only there in chance.  How satisfying to see that.  However, nothing chancy about the composition; it is the best I have seen for ages.  The scratching and scrapings of black grass against the snow in their composition which created a path; a path you wanted to walk down even though it somehow seemed like you shouldn’t…Well, that’s how my imagination worked for me!  I love the rather uncharted walkways idea…The whole thing of walking BEHIND the facades, and I think that is what drew me to this particular work.  You can view Melvyn Petterson’s “Hainton Track Snow” on the Mall website, as it is for sale. If I had the money, this is the work in the exhibition I would have brought!  It is very reasonably priced and some of the edition still available.

Ah, better than that I have permission to include on the blog!

I also enjoyed Anthony Morris’s “River Melte, South Wales”.  It was beautifully framed too.  It has a sensitivity and softness, with just the right amount of light.  Unfortunately the image on the Mall website is far more contrasty than the painting itself, and this pretty much takes away the feeling which the painting gives, which is far more gentle, and indeed, the power it possesses isn’t due to impact in a dramatic way but to some beautiful brushworking and a certain restraint in the use of light; just enough to give it the necessary life, but really JUST enough, which I think was the appeal for me.

Out of the Peter Clossick paintings I liked “Yellow Flowers” most, and it is so rewarding to see such dynamic use of paint bringing structure and form on the surface, hand in hand with confident colour.  I felt I wanted a little bit more definition in the yellow flowers because they were the focus, but however it’s not my painting, so it matters not!  Also, I could easily change my mind either way, because the colour itself may hold enough autonomy to assert the flowers, indeed it did.  And the title helps.  It is maybe to easy to define things too much too.  I think this is a very difficult matter, because more damage is done by showing too much than too little in a painting in my opinion.  Maybe it is good to make the viewer work a little harder in certain areas!

Also noted by me were some of Bob Rudd’s painting’s particularly “Lakenheath Fens, Suffolk” and seeing these added some urgency to my desire to play with watercolours this year. An unexpected find for me too, in the book shop area, in the shape of a book containing images of  Michael Morgan’s paintings.

Popping along to the Cork Street Open 2013 was also a good trip.  Huge variety of work, which was very interesting.  My favourite by miles, was a sculpture by Colin Hoppe. (which has a french accent on the e, though I don’t know how to insert it here).

Take a look at the work “Back to Basics” which was on display at the Cork Street Open here:

http://www.hillingdonartists.org/artists/Colin%20Hoppe/Colin%20Hoppe.htm

and his own website also:http://www.feelliketouchingsculptures.co.uk/ 

I nearly fell off my chair when I found out he was blind.  What a humbling experience to see, touch and feel something so beautifully created with such power.

Jonathon Chapman has moved “Art in the Ark”, to a section of his own website and the new address is http://www.jkchapman.com/art_in_the_ark/.  Jonathon does an excellent job of organising the exhibition programme at The Ark Conference Centre and it is well worth taking a look at his coverage.

Well, these are the snippets for now.

Trip on Saturday to Wimbledon Art Studios was very interesting.  I realise how important it is to follow your own unique direction, though this takes some nerve.   Words are really a waste of space when it comes to painting.  So that is enough said for today.

While preparing for my next exhibition at the CornerHOUSE Community Arts Centre in December, I have been releasing myself from the “list of things to do” with a little bit of work on some images taken around Christmas last year.
