Lindenfels ; Pearl of the Odenwald – Matchbox Project

Currently I’m in Lindenfels, Historically referred to as ‘The Pearl of the Odenwald”, Lindenfels lies in the Odenwald in southern Hesse and is nestled in a mountain landscape with a great deal of woodland.

I’m here with Matchbox Rhein-Neckar, to do a month long art residency with the local people. Here are some of the things I’ve done so far;

Part One ; St Josefsheim

St Josefsheim was a former recreation center of the Sisters of the Divine Savior, for the past 12 years it’s been empty, gathering dust, with no water and a leaky roof. But that didn’t deter me and one my first day the mayor of the city handed me the keys and I got to work.

After cleaning the place I invited the people of the town to come to the opening called “The Feast of St Leger’ – I asked them to bring homecooked food and old plates that I will create art with.

The event was a great success and a choir came along to sing. After dinner I let people wander through the rooms that I had especially created art in.

Part Two ; Story Teller

When people gave me old plate, I started to transfer photos I had took of the people of Lindenfels onto these plates using Acrylic Gel Medium;

I’m getting some really good results, especially with the plate’s pattern coming through – in the next few days I will start to hang them in the town.

Walls of Equality

dublin in love

Two nights ago, I found out that ADW would be painting the gates of South William to shout for Equality and love as part of Will St Leger’s #WallsOfEquality project.

As a big fan of both artists, I took a detour on my way out of the city to take some pictures of the piece. Quite clearly, it’s beautiful, engaging and it only takes two words to say the right thing “YES EQUALITY”

However, while taking these pictures, I was reminded why we are doing this; why we’re showing #DublinInLove. Minding my own business, an ‘interesting ‘ character looked at me and said “ni**er poof”.

I’m not quite sure why they felt the need to but we need to stomp it out. It’s water off a ducks back and we need to make sure we’re saying yes to love and yes to equality come May 22 ❤️
