Pre-festival sneak peek

Diving into the world of video to experiment with this medium as another means of bringing my work to you.

During a recent photo shoot with local photographer Lance Bellers, with Emmet Ray’s “I’ll See You in My Dreams” playing in the background, we became aware whilst flicking through the gallery on his camera that the images took on a sparkly, jewel-like quality. Aside from being a great way of showing many images in a short space of time, the flickering effect of the fast-paced slideshow seemed to temporarily transport us from that sunny room into a different dimension. Through its connection to the images, the music worked without pretension, hitting just the right rhythm and mood, and prompting jokes that we had stumbled upon a new art form.

As my preparations for this year’s festival draw to a close, and with only days left until I begin the process of hanging my paintings at 2 Knoyle Road, I bring you this sneak peek of my 2017 collection. In addition to the original acrylics on canvas, my range of cards will also be available at the Open House for the duration of the festival.

You can expect more media experimentation in the months to come, but for now please enjoy this first attempt, and I look forward to seeing many of you during at Knoyle Road.

Rod Harman – BlackShed Gallery

last night at the private view of Rod Harman’s wonderful exhibition ‘Skin Deep’ at the Blackshed Gallery, Russet Farm, Robertsbridge , TN32 5NG

I am thrilled to spend time with my former tutor, the irrepressible Rod Harman from Hastings school of Art and technology who’s encouragement, 36 years ago probably set me on the road to be a painter, he saw something in me I didn’t even recognise yet and I’m so grateful for his generous support and inspiring teaching ; so glad I went to this beautiful show, in the stunning space and setting . Thank you to Kenton Lowe the gallery owner for taking this photograph .
