OTOOLE - MARIA - 'Caylus'

 

During my french experience I was extremely lucky to meet French artist Jacque Hue. You can experience his interesting practice at: http://www.jacqueshue.fr/galeries1.php

17th October 2015: The lovely and talented Olivia Lennon (fellow A.I.R.) has photographed some of my work below. My residency is due to come to an end shortly. I am making the most of being able to make work full-time in my last few weeks here. Thanks to all those wonderful souls I have met along the way. Check out Olivia’s work: http://www.olivia-lennon.com/about-forte/

While in Caylus  I am drawing a surveyor’s map of sensory experience, this is the first month of three. I am enjoying exploring this beautiful village and have begun creating a palimpsest of overlaid repetitive everyday experience of both immense and intimate nature.
