Artist Profile Blair Staff

Blair Staff is one of the artists engaged in today's event, 'The Walk'. Blair graduated with a BA in Fine Art from UWIC in 2009 and in September she will start her MA studies in Aesthetics and Art Theory with the CRMEP at Kingston University.

"In the four years since completing my degree many poignant philosophical questions have arisen through studio practice pertaining to ‘value’ in the arts, debates surrounding arts in the wider community, and what is meant when we refer to a ‘participatory work’. I see the reading groups as an opportunity to engage with texts and discuss ideas, to inform understanding, and build relationships between the readers."

Artist Profile Becca Thomas

This Thursday will see the return of 'The Walk' for FORUM which will be lead by artist Becca Thomas and Blair Staff as we hike, march, pace, ramble, saunter, step, stride, stroll and tread through Cardiff and discuss walking and art practice. 

Becca Thomas is an artist whose work explores the relationships and emotions that exist between people and place. Through action and writing she looks at how developing a relationship with our environment could help to make sense of the storm of human emotion. Originally from Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales, she currently resides in Cardiff. She has been a regular contributor to Art & Music magazine and has made work for bands including The Jeffrey Lewis band and The Wave Pictures.
