New Endeavours

Just another update about work, to say I have now completed my studio work with Jeremy Gardiner; I helped with about a hundred watercolour pictures, and learned a lot in the process. He now has to spend time focusing on his panel paintings for the foreseeable future.

My focus will now be doing a combination of writing and illustration work for a book, as well as making some new canvases for my exhibition next Easter.

I will be installing a small selection of paintings in the new apartments in Bath city centre, at the start of next month. Here is their website: http://www.hidingspace.co.uk/

Events on the Horizon…

As I predicted in my last post, things have been a bit quiet of the website front recently, while I have been busy with my studio job! (Which is going very well; I have nearly completed work on approximately one hundred pictures, and am just about to move on to another eighty…)

Just wanted to check in to mention a couple of events on the horizon:

Firstly, from next month, a selection of my original paintings will be on display and for sale at a brand new apartment building in Bath City Centre.

And secondly, I have been offered a residency and solo exhibition at Bath Artists’ Studios, which will be happening for two or three weeks around Easter 2018, so watch this space for more info… Here is a link to their website: http://bathartistsstudios.actuk.net/

Open Art Exhib. Update!

Hello everyone, just a quick update about the Open Art exhibition I’m involved with, at Cass Art Islington:

The curator has very generously asked me if I would like to display one or two of my paintings “in the flesh”, as it were, on the actual gallery walls! This is an honour, as most work is being displayed in the virtual gallery space.

As a result, I will be dropping off two paintings this Saturday 9th September, and collecting them when I attend the private view of Jeremy Gardiner’s upcoming “Drawn to the Coast” exhibition at Paisnel Gallery: https://www.jeremygardiner.co.uk/2017/09/04/drawn-to-the-coast-exhibition-at-paisnel-gallery-london-4-to-20-october-2017/

Open Art Exhibition, Islington, London

I was recently invited to take part in World View’s Open Art exhibition, which will be taking place 12th – 24th September 2017 at the Cass Art flagship store in Islington, London.

This is an exhibition with a novel concept; it combines a real-life gallery and a virtual space. Here are more details from the Cass Art website:

“The #Openart exhibition introduces a new way of viewing and sharing art, crossing the line between a real-world gallery and a virtual one. On the walls of the Cass Art Space in Islington you will find a selection of fine art and photography from artists around the UK. Every artwork on display has also been digitally reproduced and can be seen inside the virtual gallery – which breaks beyond the four walls of the space and expands the selection of artworks to over a hundred. Not only can you explore the fantasy virtual space as part of your visit to Cass Art, you can also download this experience at home. This ground-breaking idea gives art-lovers a novel experience, whilst improving access to art and enabling artists to share their work more widely and easily, and in new and exciting ways.” https://www.cassart.co.uk/customer/workshops

Address: 66-67 Colebrooke Row, London, N1 8AB

Opening hours:

  • Monday – Saturday: 10 – 7
  • Sunday: 12 – 6

Work Announcement

Just a little announcement to say that I am currently working as a studio assistant to another artist, collaborating on a big series of paintings. I am not permitted to share any details on social media, but wanted to post this message in case anyone wonders why things are a little quiet!

“Stock”, Bargehouse, London 2017

Our exhibition, “Stock”, at Bargehouse, London was a great experience and got lots of positive attention, and it was lovely to spend an entire week in London! The Bargehouse building is an ideal location on the South bank and just a few minutes’ walk from Tate Modern. It is a rustic-looking building with textured brick and plaster walls, and lots of variations in lighting, so everybody’s work had its ideal position. I’ve added a few photos below of my work in location, me by one of our posters, and the entrance:

“Stock” is Nearly Here!

It is almost time for our show, “Stock”, at Bargehouse, Oxo Tower, London! We are setting up from Tuesday, and the show is open 28th – 30th July, with the private view on 27th July from 6:30pm. We successfully reached out crowdfunding goal – many thanks to everyone who donated, it’s going to be a great show. See “Stock” Details And New Work for links to the website, facebook event page etc.

Before then, I have a busy weekend ahead as my artist collaboration is beginning! I cannot give away any more details yet, but watch this space…

Philip Gray at Whitewall Galleries

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the official opening of Philip Gray’s new series of landscapes at Whitewall Galleries in Bath, where he also did a painting demonstration.

I would recommend having a look at his website. His work is incredible; the atmospheric, Romantic qualities and vivid colours combine to create art which I really admire, and is thematically similar to my own.

His demo lasted approximately 15 minutes and, in that time, he created a painting of a diver exploring coral reefs. It was useful to observe his techniques, and the way he allows the behaviour of the paint to take control of the final appearance.

The paintings are on display at the gallery (17 New Bond Street, Bath) until 10th September.

Degree Show 2017

Slightly late post to announce that our degree show is currently on at Sion Hill in Bath! It is the final showcase of work from this year’s graduates from across Bath School of Art and Design, with lots of interesting visual work to explore.

It continues every day until Sunday 18th June at 5pm. Here is the link to the Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/272493309880151

Me with my final three paintings (see the gallery in University Year 3 for details and prices):
