Creative Experience - presentation at Escuela de Arte Pancho Lasso  

Over the past few weeks Sarah-Jane has been in touch with the fabulous team at Escuela de Arte Pancho Lasso, the Lanzarote School of Art. The discussions between them led to Sarah-Jane delivering a presentation to many of their students, lecturers and alumni last week.

The presentation topic was about Sarah-Jane’s ‘Creative Experience’ to-date, and her artistic journey so far. It also provided an opportunity to talk about The Lacuna Studios and what we intend to bring to the island.

Sarah-Jane was introduced by Carmen Miranda a lecturer from the college. Sarah-Jane talked about her formal art education from GCSE through to her PGCE. The progression initially led to Sarah-Jane being a secondary school teacher in Leeds. However, after five years, she decided that this wasn’t the career choice that best suited her and she moved to Cyprus to undertake her Masters Degree with the support of artist and educator Stass Paraskos at the Cyprus College of Art. Stass had a huge influence on not only her art but also on her vision of her career and indeed her whole life for the future.

Sarah-Jane returned from Cyprus and set up as an Artist Educator, working creatively in many varied locations. Some examples are The Tetley Art Gallery, Leeds Museums, Cannon Hall Museum Park and Gardens, Arts Council England, The Arts Council Collection, The National Arts Education Archive, The Marks and Spencer Archive and National Portfolio Galleries such as the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Sarah-Jane has developed her own publishing house Next Generation Publications which has been able to publish a number of books created by participating children and relating to projects she has delivered over a number of years (these books are now available from the British Library).

The final section of Sarah-Jane’s talk explained about how her past experiences and teachings from Stass have led to the creation of The Lacuna Studios. She explained that how, along with Simon Turner, they aim to create residential art studios on the island of Lanzarote to provide facilities for both local and international artists and art students to learn and create in relaxed surroundings with no obligations.

Sarah-Jane talked about her experiences with other influential artists and her involvement with The Frozen Academy, an arts collective headed by Josef Danek.  She also spoke of her regular involvement in the Larroque Arts Festival, directed by Professor Kenneth G. Hay from the Gallerie la Vielle Poste in Larroque. This is an international Arts Festival based in the rural village of Larroque in the South of France. The Lacuna Studios is proud to twin with for 2019 and deliver the Lanzarote Arts Festival at the end of July through to the beginning of August.

Sarah-Jane opened up the floor for questions from the audience with some very interested students keen to find out more about The Lacuna Studios, the Lanzarote Arts Festival and also about Sarah-Jane’s history.

The Escuela de Arte Pancho Lasso presented Sarah-Jane with a copy of the book telling the History of Escuela de Arte Pancho Lasso, to mark the occasion. The book is now a part of The Lacuna Studios Library which will be based at and accessible through the studios.

More details about the Lanzarote Arts Festival 2019 will be available shortly from The Lacuna Studios website and facebook page

Here I am going to describe how these beach experiences have had an effect on my artistic practice and share some of my new series of artworks with you.The beach is a place of many unwritten rules and laws that have to be carefully navigated to ensure a trouble-free visit. How close to position your beach blanket to someone else’s? Is it ok to block someone’s view of the sea? If it is windy, can I shake my towel out when I am ready to leave the beach? Is it ok to smoke/drink/eat/play music/be loud/be amorous?And then there are the tensions that bubble inside of the people on the beach. Tensions and conflict that run just below the surface in a thick and palpable river of doubts, anxiety and confidence crises. Can I wear a bikini? How do I hide my tummy/bum/stretch marks/lumps/bumps. Is it hot enough to take my clothes off now? Will everyone stare at me?And it is this that I have noticed more than anything – how people feel in their own bodies, how people react to their own and other bodies and how people perceive that their bodies are perceived.Some people are already down to an itsy-bitsy string bikini before they even land on the sandy edges of the beach, having strolled along the prom quite confidently in their swimwear. Others arrive, anxiously, check out the beach, make their way to a spot vacant of most people, spread their blanket and sit and wait. Wait until everyone else’s attention has been diverted away from them and their arrival. Then and only then will they take off an item of clothing and even then perhaps they will sit for another half hour or so before going the whole hog.I hate that these people, no not these people, we, for I am no different. I hate that we all have these niggling doubts in our heads about whether our bodies are an acceptable presence on the beach. Every body is a beach body and everybody has a beach body. Every body is beautiful in it’s own unique way. Every body is amazing in its capacity to do things, essential life things like survive, reproduce, regenerate or just be super resilient.I decided that I want to make works that were a celebration of the beauty of the human body in all it’s many shapes and forms. But the works couldn’t be that one-dimensional for this is such a multi-faceted problem. These people, feel worthless, of no value, not good enough for a particular part of landscape because of what? Why? Peer pressure. Industry pressure. Mass Media. Social norms. Cultural values. Gender pressure. And probably lots of other reasons as well render the owners of these beautiful bodies silent, without voice, for an individual voice in the face of such overwhelming outside noise is simply drowned out.The more I thought about it, the more it became clear that these people that I saw as beautiful beings inside beautiful bodies, are not treated like the unique, special, living, breathing, feeling, souls that they are. To these vast outside pressures, industries and authorities they are faceless, just another body in a world of bodies that they need to buy into their lies.So it is these two juxtaposing views that I have in my mind as I create this series of work – I speak in the present tense as this is definitely the beginning of something. I am continuing with this series, sketching every week (almost every day!) at the beach and working on canvases, boards and other larger surfaces as and when I have time in my gorgeous outdoor studio in La Vegueta, Tinajo. ‘The Faceless (Beach Bodies)’ will have more works in the future but for the time being the start of this series is currently being exhibited at the gorgeous art gallery ‘<a href="https://www.facebook.com/Galer%C3%ADa-de-arte-ENMALA-1472891556272093/?__tn__=KH-R&eid=ARDodgeDhjCNpU7PXeQHS0GuImplyU7paazljd1dk1crRKiFU6lhcE1MA5up8Gl8xORifLYIyXwa-7PC&fref=mentions&__xts__%5B0%5D=68.ARCI_cwn17jqszV8wNC4hRDjQ3yxqnyT9CjvKhpNLU-7d6plFl7myE7rwklEBsrh4geHn9Yav9DlqEGsvZH9Jkg3j0_x5J8WjaWH7dpZE0EeWE_SLD9nRQAE6cpWB1_NgNnKqUbJo5m3nB844VOvhi7jzLHDmbvtwtxYLCccNJtrJ-R0YUsverapQIkNn08VAgA0wz2awBXmD8KM249gN1EdtVuWVs8sAFZAnf7nYoG6U5OrmVcoSlq6ZRHbNbKhirmjcYFKqhRtef6o3stIqmL9Lh-WYAh-tn5DLQ_b2Pdey5W4qkoOiLdCNCt6srfhzB4UwAILSW64YOpugEpyTLbn1Oo_swoMB9_KqFdpLEs4m63gE-ixDymhf5fd56XLbbHASooJk6RIoZaZOWxmX1zzznhEQwpD" target="_blank">Galería de arte ENMALA</a>’ in the village of Mala, Lanzarote.”</p>

<h2>Simon and his Landart featured in 

Lanzarote37° talking about The Lacuna Studios </h2><p>Our co-founder <a href="http://facebook.com/sct73" target="_blank">Simon</a> has been surprising beach goers around Lanzarote with his Landart since we arrived on the island and has been taking every opportunity whenever we travel to deliver a piece of Landart. This hasn’t gone un-noticed and a couple of weeks ago Simon was approached by a Lanzarote publication <a href="http://lanzarote37.net" target="_blank">Lanzarote37Grad</a> a popular, local based magazine that has been around for a number of years.<br/>Simon was invited to talk about his work and about The Lacuna Studios.<br/>The interview went really well and the article was published this week, with a four page spread in the magazine. Simon also had an image of his Landart used on the magazines annual calendar this year, which means his art will be up on walls all around Lanzarote for six months! The article is below, along with images of the article (apologies for any translation errors!):-</p><p>Simon Turner in the evening at the Playa de Atrás: he loves to create his transitory works without any audience attention and is nevertheless pleased when they are later taken over by playing children, before the art is then recaptured by the sea.</p><p>The first time I encountered Simon Turner’s Land-Art on the Internet was pictures of his artwork on his Facebook page. I was fascinated immediately, how beautiful it looked! Who is the artist, I asked myself, and how does he do that and with what? How does he get such huge mandalas, because when he is right next to the piece he has hardly any overview of the entire work.

Simon and his Landart featured in Lanzarote37° talking about The Lacuna Studios 

Our co-founder Simon has been surprising beach goers around Lanzarote with his Landart since we arrived on the island and has been taking every opportunity whenever we travel to deliver a piece of Landart. This hasn’t gone un-noticed and a couple of weeks ago Simon was approached by a Lanzarote publication Lanzarote37Grad a popular, local based magazine that has been around for a number of years.
Simon was invited to talk about his work and about The Lacuna Studios.
The interview went really well and the article was published this week, with a four page spread in the magazine. Simon also had an image of his Landart used on the magazines annual calendar this year, which means his art will be up on walls all around Lanzarote for six months! The article is below, along with images of the article (apologies for any translation errors!):-

Simon Turner in the evening at the Playa de Atrás: he loves to create his transitory works without any audience attention and is nevertheless pleased when they are later taken over by playing children, before the art is then recaptured by the sea.

The first time I encountered Simon Turner’s Land-Art on the Internet was pictures of his artwork on his Facebook page. I was fascinated immediately, how beautiful it looked! Who is the artist, I asked myself, and how does he do that and with what? How does he get such huge mandalas, because when he is right next to the piece he has hardly any overview of the entire work. Could he provide us with a photo for our Lanzarote37° annual calendar so that our readers could enjoy his art as much as I did? I really wanted to get to know this artist and so I sent him a message and asked to meet him.

Simon responded promptly and a few days later he and his girlfriend Sarah-Jane Mason, who is also an artist, sat with me in the kitchen and I got chatting quickly with Simon and Sarah, both from the UK. The love of Lanzarote creates a connecting element, and their refreshingly open and unpretentious manner lovingly makes them ignore the fact that my English has suffered a noticeable decline after so many years without sustained listening and speaking practice. Simon was also very happy to be present in our 2019 calendar.

I find out that the two had met each other many years before they became a couple, had re-joined each other in the depths of social networking, and now, after meeting for a coffee in Leeds, they are inseparable. The thought makes both of them smile while their eyes meet intimately. Somehow one immediately notices that the two - at least in my impression - are similar. Neither Simon nor Sarah would bend for commerce or consumption, both live consistently according to their nature and are definitely willing to sacrifice themselves in order to get closer to their goal.

Their goal is to set up an open art house in Lanzarote, where artists from all over the world can live and work as long as they want. Simon and Sarah, with consistent systematics because their planned art house, prefer to approach a climate-friendly area, but at the same time Great Britain should not be too far away. They agreed quite quickly on the Canary Islands, but which of the now official eight would be the right one? Simon and Sarah drove all the Canary Islands by car, methodically and purposefully, Simon glued to the driver’s seat and Sarah with a map on her lap.

Sarah directed Simon through every single village from Gran Canaria to Fuerteventura, and finally to Lanzarote; where immediately after they had travelled the road from the airport straight to the north, and through the Malpais at the foot of Monte Corona, there was the mighty island. Here on Lanzarote the Art House was to arise.

On the island, working as “Workawayers” exchanging work for accommodation they have been employed in the most diverse jobs, in airlines or in the holiday home care as well as for art projects of individual communities or even the island government. Always with the vision in mind how to make their Art House similar to a project in Cyprus where Sarah lived and worked for a long time, the campus of today’s ‘Cyprus College of Art’ in the coastal city of Lemba, which the Cypriot painter Stass Paraskos founded.

Simon and Sarah’s dream, would be a place in Lanzarote where artists and those with an interest in art come together to live and work with each other side by side. What is special about the planned Lanzarotian art school should above all be that really, everyone is welcome that has a lust for the Arts. Education and training will not play a selective role; the desire to create will be what counts, not some previous education or certificate of study.

Carefully mentioned doubts on my part about suitable real estate on our island given the high prices could ever be found, but the young artists do not seem easy to depress. Both have a lot of project experience in the field of art and are keen to be able to access the corresponding EU funds. The first hurdle to cross when the project was set up was a suitable real estate property needed to be found. It seems like a goliath task to me. But I think so too. It would be a project that Lanzarote, the island that has benefited so much from the creations of an artist like César Marique is still profiting well.

Where, on the Canary Islands, if not on our island, could a modern, open-to-all art school be better located?

And who, if not Simon, could be a more ideal co-founding member with its transient artefacts, in view of an ever-increasing awareness of ecology on Lanzarote? Because his art is also synonymous for what Land Art can be; Art occupied with a socio-critical component to the propertied bourgeoisie, who considered the works of the visual arts only as objects of speculation. Land-Art artist Simon does not want a new consumer good throw into the insatiable throat. In addition to art for the sake of art, Simon also wants to create works that can not be exhibited in any gallery, can not be transported, are not for sale, are not harmful to the environment or are permanently…..Beautiful. Transient. Trackless

The South of Lanzarote hides many hidden treasures. The Lacuna Studios team are taking their time to explore the hidden corners of the island, the special places that aren’t listed on the tourist maps.
Every now and again we stumble across something very spectacular!

Arte de Obra and Bettina Bork

A few weeks ago The Lacuna Studios were really excited when they had the opportunity to meet up with someone with similar beliefs and ethics to both Sarah-Jane and Simon; living, working and promoting European cultural exchange in the heart of the island of Lanzarote.
Bettina Bork is an architect and designer who studied and apprenticed with César Manrique between 1986-1992. Then, in 1993 she renovated a small, traditional house in Haria with the cooperation of the local mayor. Following this, Bettina continued to renovate traditional properties, this time choosing a larger house which first became a small hotel and eventually in 2003 was set up as a Cultural Centre ‘Arte de Obra’. A beautiful collection of fabulous apartments finished to perfection.
The inspiration for Arte de Obra came from Manrique’s similar project ‘El Almacen’ in Arrecife; an ancient study house renovated for cultural and artist exchanges, collaborations, studies, residencies and exhibitions that has been operational since 1986. Bettina says of the influence of El Almacen, “From my own positive experience there I developed the idea to continue something similar. I had the idea to create or continue an instrument for students of different nations to connect and make contact.”
Bettina also talked to us about some of César’s projects and how his designs often took shape through him drawing designs in the sand. Similar to techniques implemented through Simon’s land art interventions around the island.
The Lacuna Studios were really lucky to meet with Bettina Bork in Haria and at Arte De Obra, where she happily spent a couple of hours showing us around the centre and explaining some of the work that she has been involved with recently.
One of the most exciting projects is a film, full of members of the local communities in and around Haria that has been in development for over six years. It has recently received recognition at the ethical tourism fair, ITB, (the worlds’ leading travel trade fair) in Berlin and will be premiered in its final edit at a celebration of Manrique’s centenary.
The centre itself is gorgeous with bright, white walls, large communal spaces and lovely green outdoor spots for collaboration and exchange. Bettina was keen to emphasise that this is the most important part of the centre – to provide an ethical sort of tourism for the island and to provide a base for European and perhaps even cross-continental exchange.
Bettina was also very keen to learn about the work that both Sarah-Jane and Simon create. We really hope that we can arrange to work together in the future; perhaps on a project to celebrate Manrique’s centenary?

La inspiración para Arte de Obra vino del proyecto similar de Manrique 'El Almacen’ en Arrecife; una antigua casa de estudio renovada para intercambios culturales y de artistas, colaboraciones, estudios, residencias y exposiciones que ha estado en funcionamiento desde 1986. Bettina dice de la influencia de El Almacen, “Desde mi propia experiencia positiva desarrollé la idea de continuar algo similar. Tuve la idea de crear o continuar un instrumento para que estudiantes de diferentes naciones se conectaran y establecieran contacto ”.
Bettina también nos habló sobre algunos de los proyectos de César y cómo sus diseños a menudo tomaban forma a través de él dibujando diseños en la arena. Similar a las técnicas implementadas a través de las intervenciones artísticas terrestres de Simon alrededor de la isla.

COLOREAMOS EXPERIENCIAS

We’ve had another busy week over here at The Lacuna Studios, we have been hunting high and low to find the new TLS cruise machine, we have been taking care of the fabulous Casitas Tabayesco during our workaway experience with Caroline and Rich.
