WAVING THROUGH A WINDOW
8 January - 8 February 2020
Across six months, six teenagers crafted photographs and words to depict a small part of their world and show details and happenings of everyday life.
This project was coordinated by Dr Annabel Foot with the support of The Arnewood School and the MRC Lifecourse Epidemiology Unit, University of Southampton. The Clinical Research Network Wessex kindly donated funding for this work which was carried out as part of the NIHR funded project Engaging Adolescents in Changing Behaviour (EACH-B).
SEEING THE WOODS AND THE TREES

My working method, is to immerse myself in the forest, walk, see, sketch, take photographs, feel - then back at home paint. Using the sketches and photographs as guides only, I switch on the sub-conscious. These works are made by instinct. They no longer represent an actual place, it is even difficult to decipher the season. I place colours beside each other and build up the layers using all sorts of different implements, your ice-scraper isn’t safe whilst I’m around.
