I was employed as artist in residence by DLA Design Group, based in Leeds, London and Manchester for 30 years, finally retiring in October 2020. During that time I was privileged to work with some very talented people on some amazing projects. Below is a selection of these in no particular order.
Echo – 2005
Echo Development, East Street, Leeds
Evolving through art as process, these paintings considered and reflected on particular elements of the art led Echo Development in Leeds, for Barratt Homes and Rushbond Developments.
The Paintings were a visual and emotional response to a sculptural identity at the centre of the scheme that considered it surroundings, ie, Place, Space and Community.
The Heart of the scheme encompassed a vision for the future and held a reflection back to a rich industrial heritage.
These paintings (and others) responded to the interior and exterior spaces, moods, atmospheres and energies.
These forms and ideas influenced the eventual architectural design for the Echo Central project.
