WORKS IN PROGRESS ...............
Towards Buildings as Narrative.
Buildings are recorded history, architectural plans and drawings are information data banks, blueprints for the past, present and alternative futures, maybe even alternative pasts, all to be decoded.
The watercolours are recordings of buildings that have interested me ; the mixed media works are very much works in progress as I work towards a method of visually establishing alternative histories for buildings that may – or may not – have happened.
Reading buildings – mysteries, clues , plans - and visualising them will then form the basis of an extended study as I take up an MA course at Manchester Metropolitan University in September ; investigating and proposing alternative histories and futures for three or four buildings in the city centre ......buildings that will have other lives.
