I’ve been planning to make an audio story with friend and painter Gavin Watson for some time.
Gavin’s heading off to Switzerland soon to give a series of talks and exhibit some prints of his paintings. His hosts asked if he could supply a short film about his life as an artist.
It was a request that provided the perfect catalyst for us to do both — record the audio that’s been on my mind for a while and to film Gavin at work in Gaviworld, his home studio in the wilds of Northumberland.
So, I went to stay with Gavin for a couple of days earlier this month. The short film we made can now be viewed at the top of this post.
In time, I’ll compile the rest of the audio recordings into a longer story but, for now, I hope you enjoy this wee film.
Thank you for reading and watching — feel free to leave any thoughts/comments below.
