Rima Staines is a web-savvy artist immersed in: "…books and stories, puppetry, nature and interesting people, music, superstitions, folklore and fairytales, and most of all the otherness that can be found on the periphery of our lives, the strange and grotesque, the absurd and unnerving ... that topsy turvy in between place where things are not quite what they seem....(Our) days are spent in a house on wheels with Tui, (my) man, best friend and fellow traveller…(we) live in a house on wheels with a creaky mobile broadband connection…depending upon where we have parked our house…"
Rima and Tui live in an old Bedford house truck and travel the British Isles.
"WHEN THE SUN goes down, our evenings are orange. Lit by oil lamps and candles and smoking logs, lugged far and sawn to keep us warm. We squint at our meals cooking and peer into the shadowy sink to find spoons, read books by little circles of orange where the furthest away words on the page fall off the edge into the darkness."
Rima's art is what you might call "phantasmagoric." Her very rich blog: http://intothehermitage.blogspot.com/
