These coming weeks are shaping up to be the busiest I've yet experienced since becoming self employed in 2010. I'm working on exhibitions that are several months in the future, whilst also distributing as yet unseen 2015 artworks into venues now.
My key focus at the moment is working to secure funding for a solo exhibition in Florence this coming November. If you follow me on social media I'm sure you'll have viewed my recent Florence in Flood sketches. I'm delighted at the level of public engagement this project has so far enjoyed, and am excited to work with the British Institute Florence to build this informative exhibition within the walls of Palazzo Lanfredini.
Back to the present and my next solo exhibition will be in new organisation Gayfield Creative, based in Gayfield Square, Edinburgh. The exhibition will feature found-object based water paintings exclusively. Water has become the main focus of my practice: from straight depictions of sea, pools, reservoirs; to studies that explore flood-zones. The exhibition 'Surface' will exhibit more of an informal nature than my usual displays, featuring experimental works as well as works in new media.
