Invitation – one of the new smaller pieces I will be showing at this years Artist’s Open Houses – Brighton in May

my work will be exhibited every weekend in May from 11-17.30, at ‘Art at 21’ in a beautiful period house – 21 Montpelier Crescent, Brighton, BN1 3JJ as part of the 7dials art trail.

The venue is an easy walk from Brighton Railway Station.

We will also be open on coronation weekend bank holiday Monday 8th May.

I will be exhibiting with Nick Gardner, Kate Strachan, Luciana Liraz, Gary Goodman, Jane Sarre, Jo Delafons, Rebecca Angel and Ingrid Boucher – paintings, photography, sculpture and ceramics

New painting – just finished earlier this week – a very quiet earthy palette, which doesn’t often stay; many iterations along the way. I’ll be exhibiting in two open houses at this year’s Brighton Festival in May details to come and I will also have some paintings in the Oxmarket Contemporary – the John Rank Gallery in Chichester in early April – in the ‘Keep Art Alive’ Exhibition.

The Drive Home – thoughts from website on inspiration.

The Drive Home

It can begin with simple colour and mark on canvas or paper, seemingly random, but once I start it is as if I am processing so many things – walking home in the rain, looking out of my window, listening to an unexpectedly profound bit of music, recollecting a moment in time or noticing the light/sky change suddenly. Pretty intangible stuff, but weirdly specific at the same time. Music is always on, it seems to help take my mind out of the literal, into the abstract language of paint. I know I have finished something when that conversation stops, and when the words start flooding in for a title, immediately or much later when I am making sense of what I was trying to do.
