For the past few months, Cameron Morgan and Glasgow-based artist Charlie Hammond have been meeting every week for their collaborative residency. The pair got to know each other’s work and to create a series of prints inspired by Charlie’s matchbox collection.
“I liked working with Charlie very, very much – he has a good sense of humour, is a lot of fun, and has a really good nature. I really enjoyed myself’ said Morgan.
The residency, which ended last week, resulted in an impressive body of work.
“Working together with Cameron has been a joy“, Hammond said. “Like many good collaborations we started with no clear direction but found our way through action, the work itself the result of these ongoing and very natural conversations.
Cameron’s energy is infectious (though a few more tea breaks wouldn’t hurt!) and his ability to translate the essence of an object into a direct and playful drawing or ceramic allowed us to progress quickly, screen-printing layer upon layer and developing the works far beyond our initial thoughts.
Not only have we ended up with a great body of work but also a great friendship.”
Cameron and Charlie’s work will be on display in our gallery in a short exhibition in early April.
