Helen J. Bullard - The Natural Eye Bursary Winner 2006 Report

I feel The Natural Eye bursary scheme is an invaluably supportive opportunity to early stage artists. I feel the significant contributions several bursary winners have gone on to make to their fields is a tribute to the incredible importance of supporting artists’ at early, critical stages

The bursary funded my research visit to Bulgaria’s Black Sea Coast, Via Pontica, during spring migration, 2007.

This was a research visit to observe, draw and make notes in preparation for my BA degree show. Migration was an installation comprising a handmade vitrine which appropriated migration research (both first hand and other acquired) in the form of drawings, installation and light. Five paintings made in the field in Bulgaria accompanied the vitrine.
