This time last year I moved from my home town of Clevedon, where I worked as a self employed photographer and artist alongside working in the family run restaurant. In May 2014 I moved to East Dulwich in London to live with my eldest sister, Angela and her three children, Owain, Sofia and Rosa.
"One Year in 270" was an exhibition that showed my productivity and journey as an artist in the first year of being in the house. I used painting, not only as a way to escape not knowing where I am going, but to manage and understand the complexities I have been facing with digital photography and letting go of an image.
The "Barrow Hospital" series were the first paintings I started when I moved in to my sister's home last year. They were all painted from photographs that were taken of the windows in patients bedrooms from the abandoned psychiatric hospital in Barrow Gurney, Bristol. Now being converted into luxury apartments.
All the paintings listed here were part of the exhibition "One Year in 270".
