|Ecology of Paint 1.2 Helen Reynolds|
I have been working through smearing as a process, and it has felt inevitable to address smearing as something that needs to be wiped away - an action that is so much part of my life. Here is the video that is part of my smearing research.

Publisher Makaro Press has describes the book:
The poems in Helen Rickerby's Cinema look at the personal through the lenes of a camera and the world of cinema through the unfiltered eye. Meet the boy who learns to kiss from action movies, the girl made up of symbols and the director with the aesthetic of a sniper on the roof.The fascinating part of doing the research for this image was looking at the changing gaze of women with powerful positions in the film industry - startlingly direct and challenging in the seventies, composed in the nineties and currently tending towards indirect and turned inward.
Fancy your own quality print of this? Jump over to Pledgeme and offer a donation (you might need to email the publisher - the address is at the bottom of the page). Lots of other lovely things to choose from there too.

For reasons I am not yet sure about, I am loving painting still lives in the studio there - objects stained with dyes, nearing the end of their temporary lives, set on off-cuts of other people's cast off drawings.
