Thrilled to have been appointed artist in residence with Ballet Cymru. I can’t imagine a more inspiring and generous group of people for a painter to work with, nor a more supportive organisation. I feel extraordinarily lucky.
Also delighted to have a selection of my pictures hanging in the company’s Newport headoffice/rehearsal space, including these four pieces featuring Daniel Morrison, Andrea Battaggia, Beth Meadway, Anna Pujol, Miles Carrott and Gwenllian Davies, made in response to rehearsals for Shadow Aspect and The Light Princess earlier this year.
Having worked with the company over their last couple of seasons, I’m very excited at the prospect of building on that experience and producing new work as the dancers and choreographers create next year’s programme of shows – including a revival of their Cinderella, and an original interpretation of Dylan Thomas’s A Child’s Christmas in Wales and Tiger Eggs, with music by Mason Neely and Cerys Matthews.
Huge thanks to Darius James and Amy Doughty, and to everyone else at the company.
