I've had to cancel the November residency in Iceland. I received a letter last week and my application for funding wasn't successful and I was dependent on that to get going. I would've liked to get back and I am disappointed to not be doing the residency but on the up side I am starting a new body of work and I'll be kept busy with that.
The plan in Iceland was to work on sketches and drawings to incorporate Icelandic folklore into my practice and introduce new characters. I will instead be working with new characters based on figures of Irish mythology.
