Hope will be Artist in Residence at The Hot Tin each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10-3 during the show. She will be available to talk about the work as well as making new work inspired by the listed historic St Saviour’s Tin Church now known as The Hot Tin.
Over 100 days in 2017, colour and mark making were explored to produce two book works containing 100 small paintings. Two reference books were used. The first 75 colours are taken from The Secret Lives of Colour (2016) by Kassia St Clair which tells the story of 75 colours through history. All mark making is taken from A Nomenclature of Colors for Naturalists, and Compendium of Useful Knowledge For Ornithologists. (1886) by Robert Ridgeway, Curator, Department of Birds, United States National Museum. These were combined using a formula of Hope’s devising to determine the types of marks used each day.
