Islington Mill Art Academy at Victoria Baths open weekend and Swim for Restoration event 7th & 8th September 2019.
Residency at Victoria Baths 8th – 12th July 2019
Along with six artists from the art academy, I took part in a week-long residency at Victoria Baths. Making work responding to the building’s social history and aesthetics. We continued to make work throughout the summer with the aim of showing it at an exhibition during an open weekend in September. The organisation for this residency was supported by a bursary from CVAN (Contemporary Visual Arts Network).

Unit 4 Residency at Islington Mill
An eight week residency sharing space with painter and film maker Donna Wood in Unit 4 of Islington Mill to work on developing my painting practice working from projection and movement. As well as working on my own paintings, Donna and I created a series of large paintings from film.
During this process we were also invited by artist’s residency platform Orbit to record our progress over a week on Instagram @Orrbbitt and also can be seen here https://orrbbitt.wordpress.com/residencies19/
