Exhibition news

I’m exhibiting this month alongside three brilliant artists at 54 The Gallery, Shepherd Market, in Mayfair. The show is going to be packed with colour and drama – and it’s a wonderful venue, surrounded by cafés, restaurants and other galleries (with the Royal Academy only a five-minute walk away). Really looking forward to it – and hope to see lots of friends and artists there.

TAKE 4 runs from Monday 22nd to Saturday 27th May, 10am – 6pm.

Royal Academy Summer Exhibition

The exhibition is over for another year, and my painting is no longer mine; it’s now going home with its new owner. I shall miss it – it’s a picture I believed in and am fond of.

I’ve also loved treating the RA as a second home for the summer, and discovering new works each time I visited.  Favourites have
included the two Arthur Neal paintings (‘Studio and Garden’ and
‘Corner of the Studio’); ‘Egg Box’ by Adrienne Blake; two beautifully
subtle variations on a theme of white, ‘Trance Map’ by Trevor Sutton and ‘From Vauxhall Bridge’ by Andy Finlay; and the extraordinary, prize-winning Man on Fire sculpture by Tim Shaw RA.  And of course Tom Phillips RA’s Humument – a whole room of his re-imagined,
intricately illustrated book pages, each one a poem in its own right.  I couldn’t resist buying my own copy of the bound edition.

26th July 2015

I’m delighted to have a painting in this year’s Summer Exhibition. ‘Chinese Lanterns’ is hung in the same gallery as the huge Grayson Perry tapestry – along with really beautiful works by (among others) Arthur Neal, Simon Wright, Georgina Allen, Frank Bowling RA and Terry Setch RA.

The exhibition runs until 16th August – masses to see if you haven’t been yet.
