JP's Description: Being careful to maintain the privacy of the studio where I work has always been a priority. I wanted to challenge this 'secrecy' however and, on the invitation of the Wexford Art Centre, decided to turn the gallery into my studio for a month.
I used the walls as my canvas and people came in walking around the space as I painted. It was a challenge to my usual method of silence and solitude but an interesting exercise.
At the same time, a festival of dance was taking place in the building so movement was the activity of the moment.
At the end of the month's work, we held a one-night show 'closing' (with readings by a bunch of poet friends).
The next day the oil paint on the walls was scraped away and the surface repainted white.
