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.

nice idea!
wonderful artwork, unfortunatelly the next day the walls were repainted white, but that's what contemporary art is all about: impermanence.
