I have been invited to show a piece of work in the Triforium exhibition at Temple Church in October 2016. The exhibition celebrates 25 years of the Discerning Eye exhibition with work by previous major prize winners. The exhibition will open to the public from Tuesday 4th October and run until Sunday 16th October 2016. The venue will be the very special Triforium space at the historic Temple Church in central London. http://www.templechurch.com/
All works are on 30 cm x 30 cm Khadi paper. Khadi paper is a hand-made paper made in India from cotton rag. The irregularity, the deckel edge and non-uniform colour are all characteristics of this robust paper. The paper is primed with gesso and painted with acrylic paint. They are framed in 50 cm x 50 cm dark grey, glazed, box frames.
In 2009, I was invited by the architect Chris Loyn to be Artist in Residence at Stormy Castle, a house that was to be redeveloped by him and his team in Gower. The collaboration led to a series of paintings of the site in progress and to a 102 piece sculpture, Flock.
Stormy Castle has been awarded: RIBA Manser Medal 2014, awarded to the best new home in Britain; RSAW Welsh Architecture Award 2014; National Eisteddfod Gold Medal 2014; Concrete Society 2014 Building Category winner and CIBSE South Wales Region Sustainable Project of the Year Award 2013 .
To coincide with the Welsh Architecture Festival in April, I will be showing work from the Stormy Castle project at the Art Shop’s new Chapel space in Abergavenny. Work includes paintings and a 102 piece installation, Flock.
