I was completely unprepared for the depression that followed the dismantling of my Masters Show.
On analysis I should be very happy for I had presented an exhibition that I had worked very hard to produce. I shared the opening night with close family and friends who had travelled far and wide to be with me. My exhibition was well received and I was duly awarded a Distinction by my tutors.
However, the depression set in when the new term began. No longer did I have a Friday to look forward to where I would either be travelling to Gray's School of Art or making in my studio. So where to begin?
What I have learned from My Masters experience is how important making is to me. Although I no longer have a Friday to play I know that it is necessary to create time in my busy life to continue making. However instead of rushing into my studio and continuing where I left off I have chosen to take time to reflect. To spend time surrounded by my collections and works to date and take stock..........and what better way to do this than making a new pinhole camera.
