Threshold at the Grand Arcade, more exhibition news, and straight-from-the-studio offers.
I've just got back from de-installing an exhibition, "Threshold" at the Grand Arcade in Cambridge, with my MA cohort. You can see images from the show here https://www.instagram.com/threshold_art23/. I hung out there with Mick (@mickpaulusma) and Jenny (@jen_sketches) and chatted with the odd person who wondered in - in general people were pretty engaged and generous with their words. Concerns about me showing images of nudity were tempered when we realised their was a lingerie shop opposite with a lot of colourful advertising.
I showed the above etching, "Why Can't They Draw Fruit? #2". After a bit more tinkering with ink quality, I'll be making a limited edition run of this one (probably of 6 - it's a slow process!) - let me know if you're interested in a copy. It's also been selected for the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists' Summer show in June - details to follow!
Next exhibition will be at Cambridge Contemporary 27th May 27th - 18th June
I'll be showing 10-15 scenes of Cambridge - one of which is below. The "private" view is evening of May 26th, 6-8pm - all are welcome! Otherwise, I'll let you know when all the work goes online.
Straight from the studio
I'm highlighting today a couple of paintings I did last year, from my contactless living series. They reflect a time when Cambridge's Mill Road was opening up post-covid, and my night-time drawings and paintings became more person-filled.
