I have recently completed a large new oil painting (240 x 150cm). It is “Amida” a star maker, a figure that creates dust from chaos, from shapeless matter. The painting is now part of the Solterra Art Collection in Spain.
I travelled over to Portland for the last day of this year’s Pop Up Dorset. Great to chat to some of the visitors and meet some of the other artists.
Here are a couple of images from the day. Incidentally “Mago” and “Veil” are now part of private collections in Spain. I was lucky enough to spend some time with the film maker Norman Lomax. Norman is a former staff photographer at The Independent and The Observer and have free-lanced for most of the top magazines in Europe including Stern and Figaro. After a spell working in education, new technology has enabled him to shoot digital film. His recent movie in Portland is both beautiful and poignant.
I’m really pleased to have two large oil paintings selected to show at the Pop Up Dorset summer 2012 exhibition. I’m also very proud that one of them, “Veil”, has been selected for the front cover of the exhibition catalogue. The other painting selected to show, is “Mago”. Both were painted this year and it’s the first time Mago will have been shown.
The exhibition will take place from the 21st July until the 31st of August 2012 and my work, along with the rest, will be available to purchase.
