Exhibition at Gallery H Bangkok Jul – Oct 2017

The exhibition at Gallery H, Bankok runs until October.  I have visited it each time and whenever I go I am still excited to see the sculptural piece and how it constantly changes within the space.  The sculpture is suspended from the ceiling which allows it to move, and the subtle shifts in light and the slow movement … Read More

Studio blog April 2017

March and April have mostly been taken up with working on this large painting.  It was a pleasure working on a large scale again.  This level of detail allows me to really lose myself in the painting and the journey of these lines.  This is the last painting I will complete in preparation for my exhibition at H … Read More

Studio blog March 2017

The laser cut sculpture is in progress and I am now fine-tuning matters of material thickness and the width of the lines.  How many lines and how much negative space can I have without compromising the physical intergrity of the piece.  My intention is for it to be strong and fairly rigid, so the steel plate from which … Read More

Studio blog Feb 2017

I have been working on the prototype for my metal sculpture.  The way this object behaves fascinates me.  My drawings, as you might know, are quite dense, and by removing the perceived background and leaving just this layer of lines is very exciting. I am intrigued by the prospect of my drawing morphing into a totally different object with … Read More

This is the beginning of the sculpture project.   This is very new for me, working out how to make a sculpture using laser technology to produce the final piece. It has taken several months of trial and error and I have learned much in the process.  This is the beginning.  Scrupulously cut out from card to get a … Read More

On the road – Sept 2016

I spent almost all of September travelling in Europe, mainly in England and Spain. In London I visited the Tate Modern and Serpentine Galleries.  At the Serpentine Pavilion this beautiful construction by Danish Architect Bjarke Ingels was amazing. This is a massive sculpture in the courtyard of the Nouvel Building at the Reina Sofia Madrid.   Intriguing, it held … Read More

In the studio – April 2016

I have been travelling through Spain again.   I could not resist taking this photo of a window in a very old stone building near Girona .                                         This red building in Barcelona is so Spanish, it is a hotel which is near … Read More

In the studio – March 2016

I spent most of March repainting the background of Perinone, the mauve colour was too light, it was worth making it a dark chocolate brown, the space in the painting works much better now. The  photos for March are of  No 1 the painting Perinone  167.5x76cm in the studio between the first and second coats of paint for … Read More
