Duration of my residency
Reason(s) of the residency
Exchange with other artists
to spend time painting in France
What was my residency project?
My project during my 2 months residency at Pxxx in France, was to experiment with technique and style, and to come back to what is true in my work and be inspired by French culture, art and history.
It was a time of collecting and sharing information with other artists from around the world and from France; it's culture, food, people and countryside.
It gave me time for preparation for my new works which I started after returning home to Australia.
During the residency, I took part in a public event
Funding of the residency
My opinion on artistay's service:
I found Artistay to be most helpful; great communication and suggesting Pxxx residency which was perfect for me and the way I like to work.
Here are some pics of Pxxx; my residency in France, the countryside in St Erme, my studio and a fellow painter from England who was there during my stay.
