The Unseen Meijburg Art Commission Nomination

I am extremely delighted to announce that I have been nominated for the Unseen Photo Fair new award, the Meijiburg Art Commission! I am nominated along with four other fantastic artists, including a few friends too, it is sure to be an exciting wait to see the winner revealed and good to luck to us all. 

Here is how Unseen Photo Fair announced the shortlisted artists, "Overwhelmed by both the number and quality of submissions from last month's open call for all Unseen artists aged 35 and under, we are proud to announce the shortlist for the brand new Meijburg Art Commission. Following their nomination, the selected talents will further develop their proposals for the site-specific commission to be presented to an international jury prior to Unseen Photo Fair & Festival. The final winner will be announced by the jury during an exclusive Meijburg & Co Tax Lawyers event at Unseen 2015, and will be given the opportunity to produce the commissioned work for the Meijburg & Co office in Amstelveen."

Unseen asked what a commission of this kind would mean to me, I responded with, Cross-cultural and interdisciplinary, the notion of professional exchange is paramount to the development of my artistic practice. Having the opportunity to engage, inspire and deliver to other audiences within a supportive commissioned environment is invaluable as a stimuli at this stage of my career. To work with a global company that understands the importance of innovation, knowledge and provides a made-to-measure service only echoes my ethos within contemporary photography.

All the works nominated can be seen at the Flowers Gallery booth in Unseen Photo Fair, opening Thursday 17th September and on the Gallery's website.

Things Are Really Hotting Up For September...

I am very excited to say that I will be exhibiting with Flowers Gallery for the much anticipated 2015 edition of Unseen Photo Fair with my latest collaborative series, Lunar Caustic, the result of a much labour of love with the Beijing Silvermine. Thomas Sauvin and I are delighted to be showing the series, with some special Unseen Premiere editions - works only released a few weeks ago and never seen before! 

Things are certainly hotting up, ready for Unseen, as talks, commission news and events start to come through, planning continues and September looks to be a very special month. Very, very excitingly before Amsterdam, works are being sent across the water to sunny California for a wonderful exhibition with Rose Gallery, more to come on that shortly...
