Silent Witness grows into Bear Witness

John Richard Scott and unknown compatriot during World War One.

Silent Witness is an ongoing investigation into how our familial knowledge and experience has shaped our individual patterns of thought and action and how this can be brought into the here and now and manifest collective change.

Bear Witness is about taking active responsibility for our thinking and outward action to manifest a nurturing environment and community.

Since becoming a mother my inward creative and personal exploration has naturally become more strongly about the 'other' and how our interactions effect change.

Silent Witness began during an Artist Residency, whereby I took the opportunity to indulge time and thought into why I have been intrigued by a photograph of my grandfather in his World War One Soldiers Uniform. And how society has shunned and kept silent the ongoing personal and collective trauma of War.

My findings are in no way conclusive. My investigation is focused on the smallest thought can influence change with collective thinking.

My methods of understanding and exploration always begin with drawing and painting. I continually observe and absorb the world around me. A specific impetuous will begin a new line of enquiry this is always something I feel great passion for. Whether a social comment or new understanding of scientific theory on BBC four.

At the essence of by being and Art Practice is the continual search of the complete state of beauty.

'Silent Witness' Installation

'Silent Witness'- Shadow Self, Photograph.

'Silent Witness' Painting

The above images are part of 'Silent Witness' Trilogy 1, to acompany the 2D works there is a short real time film.

Silent Witness Installation is expressed by different forms of media works which denotes ‘Regeneration’ by way of archetypal metaphor; the different media is to effect the connections of archetype on many levels.

Silent Witness portrays; the physical rebirth of Wakefield, the storehouse of history; cyclical vision and creativity.

The symbolism of trees represents perpetual regeneration therefore signifying ‘life death life’ cycle which is a focus in my Creative Practice. The imagery of Silent Witness depicts the winter of life, the shadow self, the seeds of new beginnings.

'Silent Witness' is my current installation as part of the opening of The Hepworth, Wakefield.

Dance Art

A quick review of the year so far.

I began the year by partaking in Turvey World Dance;

I once again enthusiastically joined other dancers and performed Contemporary Dance at Huddersfield Art Gallery, Yorkshire, UK. The inspiration was the John Cage Exhibition. Sheer delight.

I undertook contemporary dance classes at Yorkshire Dance. I was fortunate to explore a current exploration of self shadow.

I do plan to perform more dance drawing as part of my developing studies of 'Silent Witness' .
