Luxurious A stone curved so hollow it was translucent, wrapped in gold fabric that smimmered,folded,joined effortlessly. Egyptian middle history,
Like it could be some beautiful furniture piece,
Coming forward in time. Summer holidays Palm beach cavaran park 1949. Living in a caravan for four weeks.where the adults were tall ,the golf course dangerous,dodging flying balls.A park of different shapes and colours, glare filled skies, salt drying on our shoulders and ears, a yearning to go to the Palladian for ice-cream
Doha beached, on shallow embankments, a memory from long past.
Meandering along locked in with a treasure trove of imagery initially created using drafting film + acrylic paints and my Ipad. A meandering journey that led to Egypt,the creation of a sacrophagus painted as if made from some rare translucent stone/ gold fabric thread placed in a buriel chamber, the walls of which adorned with memories depicked in previous paintings .
My April exhibition has been postponed till Oct 2020 , for obvious reasons, and my dissatisfaction with FB has reached a all time low. The introduction of their algorithms means the honeymoon is over. I have realised I can use my latest news segment to achieve the same ends , ie sharing my work with those who enjoy it, and the odd realisations to boot.
The next weeks will unfold a treasure trove of images that enter new territory and can only be found on my website.
The show will provide a opportunity for friends and followers to see a diverse selection of recent work, to be held across the month of April, with opening night the 3rd, giving everybody plenty of time to browse, at a time to suit their own busy lives. The exhibition is made up of 30 recent works all limited addition prints and all for sale.
I look forward to being there for the opening, to share the stories behind each piece, and current interests, firing my new creations. Invitations will be sent out thru March.
The venue is small but opens out to adjoining parkland providing a perfect backdrop.
My exhibition in New York was the culmination of 3 years planning and was a big success. Arriving home I have been re-thinking my way forward, and have begun with some new mixed media works from photographs taken as we crossed the globe
A freezing morning in the African bush gave up this photograph which I have made a digital painting of .
It is intended for the ninewhiterooms 2020 exhibition , included in the portrait gallery. A number of other pieces from our trip around the globe will be added as they come to hand .
Will add regular pieces during the remaining part of the year.
