A Very Merry And Magical Christmas To You All - A Very Happy & Exciting New Year Awaits!

So this time comes again, when we put down our tools and get ready to rest up with some much needed relaxation and of course celebration! But before all the festivities start, I get great joy from making and sending out my Limited Edition Christmas Cards and this year I pay homage to the greats that are the Dadaists, with a edition of 50 cards.

I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a magical Christmas. I hope that it is filled with much  joy and happiness. It has been an absolute pleasure working with so many extraordinary people this year and I thoroughly look forward to what 2018 brings. Let's raise a glass to 2017 and await the excitement of 2018 - which I know is going to be an amazing year already!

New Commission Revealed In The New Publication "American ABCD" Tonight at La Fabrica In Madrid


I am absolutely delighted to reveal that my new body of work Verbatim, inspired and commissioned by the wonderful Patricio from Paripe Books is launched tonight, part of the new set of publications entitled America ABCD, at La Fabrica in Madrid.

Earlier this year, I was asked to rework one of the images from Patricio's archive, predominately black and white imagery from the 1950's and create a new set of works or work in response to this one image. It was an incredibly moving project to work on, seeing the strange parallels between the times we thought we had moved on from to the startling reality of todays political and social climate. 

I was deeply inspired by the way that women were being represented in those times and sadly found an astounding connection, mirror of the times of America (and more widely) that we are party to today. I drew on modern day inspirational speeches, shocking historical 'educational' films intermixed with the streaming consciousness of a never ending vocal from the political strong and interlaced this with my own personal experiences to create Verbatim, a script.

The resulting works are 5 pages from a wider script that I am currently writing around the socio-politics of our current times, but what you see published in this book, gives a strong flavour to what I am working on and will release, in part, next spring. Sad, yet inspiring times, gives a wealth of material to work with. So delighted to be part of this publication and to have many fellow friends and colleagues, a part of this too.

'Reversiones' Exhibition Shots - Centro De La Imagen - In Mexico City - 23 Nov. - 1 April 2018

I am absolutely delighted to have the installation shots back from my new group exhibition, "Reversiones"  at the wonderful Centro De La Imagen in Mexico City. The show really does look stunning and working with all the museum has been an absolutely delightful experience. I would like to extend my huge thanks to the following people, whom without them, this exhibition could not have happened.

Firstly to all at ROSEGALLERY for their patience, support and incredible assistance in getting these works from Santa Monica to Mexico, David Solo for his continued and never-ending support in my practice, Darren Warner and Steffi Klenz, both dear friends and extraordinary curators and artists in their own right for their continued interest and creative excitement for the project and of course all at the museum, technicians, curators and of course the Director for the opportunity to have such a great show up for such a wonderful duration. But of course, last, but by non means least, two women who have been extraordinary throughout this process; curator Natasha Christia and Mairela Sancari who dreamt up this idea as well as the trio of Vincent, Brad and Lewis, the other artists exhibiting that I am honoured to also exhibit with.

This project has been such a dream to work on, and it has only just began, as we prepare for our Educational programme which will expand the exhibition, but also bring us to this wonderful city, Mexico! 2018 preparation has already began and I am over excited about what we can achieve. What a perfect way to end this year, with much excitement, joy and many projects in the wings!

Installation Shots From 'A Motley Crew' Exhibition At Christian Larsen Gallery On Until 16 December

I am back from Sweden and what an incredible city Stockholm is.  Such wonderful clean, crisp air, warmth in all the people I met and such generosity and positivity from the artistic community, it really was a delight to be in such great company!

So I am delighted to show the installation shots from this exciting group show, curated by Darren Warner at Christian Larsen Gallery, "A Motley Crew - An informal expression for a roughly organised assembly of individuals of various backgrounds, appearance and character. They are typified by containing characters of conflicting personality and usually a wide array of methods of overcoming adversity."

The Exhibition is on until 16 December, and if in Stockholm, this show really is not to be missed! More information and the full press release can be found here -
