Amid the hectic comings and goings over the last few weeks, I completely neglected to post on here about an exciting opportunity I’ve been lucky enough to be offered. There is an organisation called Art House in Wakefield (West Yorkshire, about 30mins drive south of Leeds for those of you unfamiliar with UK geography). The director David saw my work at my degree show, and along with three others from my year, has offered me a place on a paid graduate residency in December. I basically get to stay in a flat with the other artists (when I do the residency there’ll be some grads from other unis too), make work in a studio space and then have our studio open to visitors as part of the Wakefield Art Walk.
I’m yet to get to know who will be there the same month, but I do know one of them is a guy from my college, Jack Fisher
