Plastering is my trade but we specialise in damp & remedial work helping people tackle and solve their damp issues. Years ago I would plaster anything and I’m the unofficial world record holder for skimming the largest ceiling in one drag 😉. I don’t take awkward jobs on these days as their are too many damp issues to be solving. This job was a favour for a friend who had work men in to do this shop fit. They were slow and rough so a plea was made to me to sort it out for them. The salon is still operating and we only had a 3 day window to board and skim it but we got it done. It is up there in the difficulty scale as the floor is different levels. Still it’s done now and it would take a ships ransomed for me to do another #difficult#plastering#awkward#plaster#fireboards#8x4#skimming#cheaplabour#scaffold#boss#skimmingmiles#bradford#southyorkshireproperty#renovating#cando#ican
#babahousetextures | the lower segment of a wall - known as the dado - is often finished differently to serve a protective function, but that doesn't mean it can't also be decorative! At the NUS Baba House, dados commonly feature animals, plants, and Chinese antiquities. Seen in this photo is a plaster relief of a vase comprising of seven bats, which symbolise happiness and are considered auspicious in Chinese culture. Can you see the bats in this photo?

I initially started my project, which brings together textile and plaster (1st photo) to explore what the role of textiles is. It led me to investigate how we make sense of something, how we understand objects and people, and how not understanding something or someone changes the attitude towards them.
The idea for this work grew from my experience of exhibiting my early woven work X-Ray series (2nd photo); the expectations surrounding it due to it being weave/textile. Textiles are largely seen as functional objects however, my weave, X-Ray series placed in a fine art context expresses my interest in materiality, change and human response. Through material exploration I built a structure that focuses the viewer on its vertical line structure, which is emphasised during a performance with light (3rd photo). The material’s ability, to visually transform and trick the viewer’s perception speaks of human experience, and assists an understanding of time and space, while all of these aspects may be limited to chance.
More in upcoming posts. For now, I’d be interested in hearing if you experienced through your work/other situations where expectations altered the existing work/ideas and informed a new area to explore. Or if you no matter what continued your line of thought when making.
