So lovely always to receive photographs of paintings in situ; Night tidal what is inspired by late night lockdown walk to the beach; the moon reflected on the inky water; ￼￼this collector also has ‘Tidal’￼ a slightly larger – piece about the sea in Kefalonia Greece – I am very grateful that she decided to have them both in 2020 – a difficult year for showing work – this kind of support keeps us going￼.
This year I am displaying work in my home and studio and sharing it through the online open houses – a great and very welcome opportunity in the current situation – for information about paintings that are available please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ve found an addictive little creative pursuit of splicing my photographs from daily walks, often in sunset with slices of images from my paintings – really interesting seeing the relationships that are there not always consciously noted. Helping to make sense of the internal and external world and experiences of the current situation here in lockdown May 2020.
Also I made a recording zoom interview last night with my friend Artist Julie Allan interviewing me about my practice, inspiration etc last night, really fun to do, I will do the same for her soon and will edit and release it soon. Watch this space, hope everyone is well.
In the postponed period of Brighton Artists Open Houses 2020 due to social isolation period there has been a brilliant idea to get local artists to exhibit their paintings in the windows of their own house; here is my contribution, harder than it looked to attain, the large pieces looked very sad indeed but this little framed piece worked nestled in the corner of our front window.
Always interesting to get a different perspective on our work as artists; didn’t feel brave enough to leave it there long, but I am definitely feeling inspired to keep painting and appreciating having a studio at home and a garden to go and commune with nature and get inspired – being in flow with painting is one very good way to forget for a few moments/ minutes about COVID 19; I hope anyone reading this is staying safe and sane in these very strange times.
