Artist Statement

'I don't know who you are, Rhiannon Lowe', or so said Rich Collins. Ducky, could you read the label, please?

Yeh, sure. "I've made drawings and installations, done a few performances - talks really, but with noise, sound, a bass guitar that I kicked a bit. I sang a little on some, and on sound pieces I've made. Worked for a magazine called CCQ for a few years before it went under. I was exhibitions officer in mid Wales, a curator's bitch in Cardiff, managed artists on residencies in the north, and got up to my neck in trouble with Wales at Venice a while back. I did an MA in museum studies, painting and drawing before that in Lancaster. I've worked in Scarborough, Hull, Sheffield, and curated a show in Carlow, and online on axisweb."

Thanks, what about below that, I can see there's small print.

"Loves a job in a charity shop."

Nice. Oh wait, is there more?
