2016 MAR - Bill Mudge - 20 in 15

20 in 15 is a behind the scenes look at the lives of twenty different artists, their creative processes and working environments by local photographer Bill Mudge.

The project evolved by each participant recommending the next. Bill worked on the project in his spare time, spending roughly 300+ hours on shoots, travelling to locations and processing the images.

About half of the artists on the project are local to Carshalton, where there is a thriving Arts community. Bill also travelled to locations around the UK and France to complete the project.

The twenty artists and organisations who will be featured in the book are:

• Peter S Smith – Painter Printmaker
• Alex Foster – Illustrator
• Abel Kesteven – Artist
• Aga Cowling – Amber & Glass Designer
• Jeremy Clark – Ceramic Sculptor
• Luci Metcalfe – Artist
• Dan Redding – Videographer
• Kathryn Sherriff – Ceramicist
• Glow – Design Agency
• Guy Meredith – Composer
• Emma Capron – Interior Designer
• Wayne Sleeth – Artist
• Kendra Haste – Sculptor
• Alban Low – Illustrator
• Lucy Furlong – Poet
• Karin Andrews Jashapara – Shadow Puppetry
• Emily Hall – Weaver and Ceramicist
• Andrew Candy – Gallery Owner & Graphic Designer
• Art Language Location – Contemporary Arts Festival
• Association Amitiés Tsiganes – Community Arts Projects

This year, with your help Bill would like to try and make a photo book of the work to coincide with the exhibition at the [mine] gallery.

What will the book be like?
All the artists will be represented, and if you click on the kickstarter link at the bottom of the page you will see a few of the photographs that will go into the book.

Bill has the backing of a great family run publisher called Sampson Low who specialise in creative arts publications. Bill has collaborated with them on other projects and they do an amazing job of supporting creative projects just like this one.

Turning 20 in 15 into a book will be a wonderful way to celebrate the project, showcase the artists and get the work out to a wider audience.

"20 in 15 has been hugely beneficial in developing my own creative process, and I feel very privileged to have been welcomed into artists' studios to photograph them." 
Bill Mudge December 2015

"We are delighted to support Bill's project by hosting the exhibition at the [mine] gallery in Carshalton Village. In many ways, 20 in 15 mirrors our own efforts to work cooperatively with artists to raise their profile and provide an accessible gallery space within the community that showcases creativity and educates the public about the processes involved. Bill's excellent exhibition will help us to continue to develop Carshalton Village as the natural, cultural hub of the borough and ultimately assist in the regeneration of the village and local area".
Andrew Candy, Owner [mine] gallery, January 2016
