Mark Sealy, Director at Autograph ABP and I have been in conversation about my practice for 6 years now, and only a few months ago,I was awarded the prestigious residency under Autograph ABP who are able to nominate one artist each year.
At Light Work, I spent a month critical developing and re-mastering You Get Me? with Master Printer John Wesley Mannion. In that month I was able to digitally print 48 portraits on Canson Platine Fiber Rag, 26 x 40 inches. I also developed my critical thinking with regards to how I want the book to look and feel. Having this time to concentrate entirely on my practice has been invaluable and I cannot recommend enough the residency at Light Work.
Work by each Artist-in-Residence is also published in a special edition of Contact Sheet: The Light Work Annual along with an essay commissioned by Light Work and I am delighted to announce that Charles Guice has taken up the challenge. Here is a link where Charles is interviewed, he talks about how he became an art dealer, the type of work he represents and more.
Here are a few images from my time at Light Work.
