This is another painting from my Huellas de la otra Historia series. I am calling it Calchaqui (2as it reminds me of the amazing colours in the mountains of the calchaqui valley in Salta , Argentina. I will be exhibiting this painting at the Untitled exhbition at Chelsea Town Hall in June. Hope you can make it !!

This painting is called Salta la Linda, its one of the images from my trip to Argentina and is part of the Iconic lines series. I hope you enjoy it!

Later I will be posting images from my Impossible weaving installation. I am going to be installing the pieces in our unit in Tooting Market. The area all around the unit has suppliers of beautiful woven cloths. I will be spending time developing a textile installation there using materials supplied by traders in and around the market which I will post as it develops!!

These painting are a continuation of my Iconic Lines series and there will be a number of these focussed on a book I have been looking at called Huellas de Una Otra Historia. I found this book in the archeological Museum in Salta Argentina. It seemed to link with my reading of iconic lines and piedra abstracta. I hope you enjoy them, they are close to my heart.

I am looking forward to tomorrow when as part of POST (a group of artists, myself included),we take possession of Unit 32 (at the back)

21-23 Tooting High Street,Tooting, London, SW17 0SN.

We will be working here intially for a period of four months using the space as an exhibition space/project space/studio/coffee lounge style discusssion with public space!!! So a lot going on!!! I'll keep this site posted as things develop.

My proposed use of the space is to create a textile installation. I love the area particularly the clothes and textile shops....there is an impressive sewing department store nearby!! I pass through it on my way to the print studios in Coldharbour lane. I am hoping that this project will give me the opportunity to work within the community using materials from local shops and using the expertise of visitors to the market that reflects something of the area. I will be photographing the installation as it progresses and posting images here.

We will also be launching a website soon which I will link to my blog!
