Racetrack Art - Nurburgring, Germany

Racetrack Art - Nurburgring, Germany

As many of you will have seen on my social media pages, I have recently been working on a new and exciting project - Racetrack Art! I had no idea this kind of thing even existed! I was approached on Instagram by a previous customer who had bought one of my chopping boards at Manchester CheeseFest a few months previously. After discussing themes and colour schemes for the racetrack art I was ready to begin! The racetrack sculpture depicts the complete current layout of Nurburgring, which is located in Germany.

Preservation and Reproduction of Artworks

In this article I am going to discuss the issues surrounding the preservation and reproduction of artworks. I will examine the ways in which Young British Artist Damien Hirst, born in 1965, addresses death and mortality in his work through the use and presentation of decaying materials, focusing particularly on one of his most famous works, ‘A Thousand Years’ . This work involves the observation of the life cycle processes taking place within a glass box involving thousands of flies feeding from a decaying cow’s head (the flies in fact fed from a sugar-water solution). The rotting head of the...

Land Art

Whilst I was at Liverpool Hope University my main topic of focus was Land Art. Researching this topic came to inform my own artwork. I was always drawn to this area of study because I found it so fascinating. Land Art emerged in the United States of America in the late 1960s during an era of radical change. The movement involves working within the landscape – often in deserted areas far away from civilisation – and rearranging the natural state of the Earth. Various terms refer to the movement, the most popular being ‘Earthworks’ – a term coined by Land Art’s...

How to Package an Artwork

How to Package an Artwork

In this article I will discuss how to package an artwork. Whilst I was studying Fine Art at Liverpool Hope University I volunteered in several galleries across Merseyside. During the several hundred hours of volunteer work that I did, I learnt everything from assembling an exhibition to constructing the visitor information for the gallery walls. One of the most important things that I learnt along the way was how to package an artwork properly. Whether an artwork is travelling across the globe or a mile down the road, protective packaging is a must to ensure it’s safety and quality. This...
