Sense of Place has been a year long sketchbook collaboration with artist Joanna Walton. We are both jointly inspired by the intrigue and narrative created by derelict buildings and have sought to work together visually in exploring this theme.
Our sketchbook has changed hands on a monthly basis, with each of us responding to the work that has been added; as a result these ‘story boxes’ came about as extensions of the sketchbook narrative.
The work has allowed us both to experiment with mixed media approaches and colour palettes that would not of otherwise occurred and this is purely due to the dynamic created by collaboration. Both artists intend to develop these ideas further into 2020 as a wider body of work.
