This month I have been drawing using a mashup of print technique:

This project has become an exhibition. For real. Opens on 16 October with a private view the night before. Semi-Permanent Collections is the title of the show. In a line down the middle of the small gallery space are three display cabinets, tall and narrow, made of glass. I’m currently working on the contents of the central cabinet – an homage to my grandmother Diana. What do you think? Any thoughts on labeling. Labeling will be the issue of the month for me.

The woodblocks are hers. There are 143 in total and my wonderful aunt Julia Bloomfield is looking after them at the moment but she has allowed me to print from them. The contents of the cabinet will relate closely to what’s on the walls.
