Sara Bor, 14 – 21 January 2017

It’s an overwhelming environment and it was difficult to know where to start. I was too eager to begin making, knowing I had a limited amount of time there. I began 3 large scale paintings working in situ outside. Additionally I carried out studies and drawings to help complete the paintings at the end of the Residency.

On reflection I think one week wasn’t enough and that I should have applied for a fortnight. Although my project went well I felt I needed the first week to really acclimatize and to absorb my surrounds and become familiar with the place before starting work.
