‘Voyons Voir’ Art Residency Invitation, Aix-en-Provence
July 2013

I was recently invited to Aix-en-Provence in the South of France, by the French cultural organisation ‘Voyons Voir‘.
In anticipation of a forthcoming artist residency, I have been asked to propose a project which will serve as the basis for the month long residency.

The organisation has a series of beautiful sites, including two majestic vineyards producing wine and olive oil- with one overlooking ‘Montagne Sainte-Victoire’ – the breathtaking mountains which featured in much of C├ęzanne’s paintings. There was also an enchanting garden with a series of beautiful sculptures and design works from previous residencies.

Of course, I am utterly inspired and subsequently spending much of my days working on a very special project that i’m hoping will come to fruition very soon!
