At the end of October we were delighted to organise a sharing of work by Andrew Omoding. Andrew has been working on a new body of work for the past 6 weeks, with his approach and techniques being observed and documented by social anthropologist Professor Trevor Marchand.
Andrew invited fellow artists, friends and family to see his extensive works on display, which includes a series of intricate objects and hangings using fabric and found materials.
This was an action research project initiated by Craftspace as part of Radical Craft: Alternative Ways of Making. The exhibition is a Craftspace and Outside In touring exhibition that will tour the UK in 2016, celebrating creativity by self-taught artists from across the UK and abroad who make work in a private domain outside the mainstream.
“I was thrilled to attend the sharing of Andrew’s work at ActionSpace. He had been so prolific over the six sessions with Trevor, there was so much to see. They had built up a clear rapport and the work Andrew created was stunning and represented so many interesting themes and stories. I look forward to seeing the film of the residency which will explore Andrew’s artistic process in the exhibition when it launches next year.”
