Notes on – Professional development – Made in Roath

This is the space I was displaying in. It is the skittle alley of The Albany pub in Roath.

I placed the work into the correct placing. I wanted the painting titled stairs to lead the eye upon entering the space.

I used French cleats to secure the work to the walls.

Here is an image of them up on the wall.

The sloap of the floor an ceiling was difficult to work against. They were slightly out of line but it was acceptable due to time constraints. I did not like this space particularly as it wasn’t crisp or artwork focused. There were too many distractions. Its like if your taking a photograph of an item like a bicycle to sell on the internet. You want the image to be as clear as possible. You would not want an image that was distracted so you may want a plain backdrop with very little distraction. This is what may best suit me.

I left the name plates off the works displayed as I wanted to see how it would differ people’s experiences upon viewing.

I did get feedback from the general public although it was mainly from the partly drunk pub users. Some claimed that it wasn’t painting and others laughed at prices that were set. This hurt me a little but I do have thick skin and it didn’t bother me as much as it bothered my partner.
