I was lucky enough to help Richard Woods install his artwork ‘Estate’ at Houghton Hall. The drawing covered the front lawn of the hall and took several hours to install, no thanks to the pouring rain! NUA students also pitched in as did Sir Anthony Gormley and the artwork was filmed from above using a drone. A temporary installment for Richard’s project it was deinstalled the next day. Had a great time chatting with Richard, his team, other volunteers and Mr Gormley too.
I now have work for sale with thecurators.com founded by Lea Simone Allegria and Augustin Doublet. Thecurators.com is based in New York.
