Summertime News

It’s been a long, hot, enjoyable and productive summer spending most days in the studio. Luckily I can throw open the studio doors and catch some breeze off the river.

Thames Side Open Studios weekend of 9 & 10 June was sunny, busy and fun. The winner of Continuous Rainbow my contribution to the charity mystery boxes was delighted with his choice. He said I’d made him a very happy man!! Looking forward to meeting more visitors here next year.


IMPRESS
During July I was able to participate alongside other Thames Side Print Studio members in our Summer Show at Lumen Gallery where I showed my Ying:Yang limited edition embossed prints.

Why not take a late summer trip to the seaside at Whitstable on the Kent coast where I have a pop up exhibition in SHOW OFF Gallery, 13 Harbour Street, Whitstable, CT5 1AQ. Have a paddle, some oysters or good old fish and chips in the harbour. Plenty of vintage shops, arty galleries and trendy clothes shops, and cafes, pubs and bars of course. Only about an hour and a quarter from London by car or train from Victoria, Kings Cross/St Pancras or Stratford International.
Sunshine guaranteed!!

MY KINGS COLLEGE HOSPITAL COMMISSION
My two commissioned artworks will be displayed in meeting and counselling rooms in Kings College Hospital in Denmark Hill when it opens its new Critical Care Unit shortly. You may have seen the two new floors and Hellipad being built over the past three years?

With the aim of providing comfort and peace at a time of stress and trauma I am bringing real nature into the clinical environment. Castings direct from flowers and seeds capture their transient beauty promoting a relaxing environment. This is work in progress so more about the final works and installation in the next Newsletter.

Looking forward to Open Studios here on weekend of 9 & 10 June. Visit me in Studio 34 Unit 4 near the picnic area.

Equal But Different

Territory

It’s been great to see my work on this Brexit project all together within my first solo show and I’ve had good feedback. Visitors have said “ great exhibition!” “ I was completely absorbed”
“ thrilled and impressed with your body of work” “ such delicate tracery-Brilliant!” “ wonderfully inspiring work 🙂 ” “Amazing :-)”

It has really boosted the momentum so I am now pressing ahead with the next phase of casting around the UK from beach locations in Northumberland, Cumbria, Scotland, Ireland and Wales!”

Closed the show in the early spring snow where “All I Really Want is a Cuddle” is happily settled on its new plinth on permanent display in the Cloister Garden @ Lumen Gallery, 88 Tavistock Place, London WC1H 9RS
