Pleased to say that I sold four of the Ugly Beautiful series on the last day of the Curious Kudu show. So thank you, whoever you were. Nothing more from me for the rest of this year but already three shows lined up for 2023. The Sprout New faces show in January, then my Liminal Life show, also at Sprout, in May and another solo show at the end of June beginning of July that should also coincide with Urban Art Brixton and hopefully I will get into the Townhouse Open again this summer too.
I will also be having a January sale, via the Artist Support Pledge, after the festive period is over, to make some space for the works I will need to produce for next years exhibitions.
I've added those four sales to my mocked up sales wall...
Given that there was a tube strike on Thursday that was a mighty fine turnout. Thanks to everybody that came. Marie, Martin and Me had a great time. Hopefully see you all again for the closing party on the 27th. Curious Kudu is open. Thanks to Amber for the photos

I have two solo shows booked for 2023. The first is in May at Sprout Arts, which will be called Liminal Life and another in June/July at the Woodfield Pavilion, which is as yet untitled. That should keep me busy in the Spring.
Grover, Lenclos & Wilde is now open at Curious Kudu, 117, Queens Road, Peckham, SE15 2EZ. There will be an opportunity to speak to the artists over drinks on Thursday November 10th between 6.30 - 8.30. The exhibition runs until November 27th. Please note that the gallery is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Here's a list of works I have in the show.
I'm one step closer to what it is I think I want to be creating with these new works. Mixed media on MDF on 30cm square wood panels. I have been painting individual MDF panels and then knocking them about a bit for texture, cutting them up and them assembling them onto the wood panels. Next step will be to incorporate other elements, like the rusted metal of the Ugly Beautiful series, then scale it all up to eventually working on reclaimed shipping pallets. But in order to achieve that I need to move somewhere with some outside space. Which Is what I'm planning for next year. There will be four of these new "Sectioned Imperfections" works in the Grover, Lenclos and Wilde show at Curious Kudu n Peckham in November.. Watch this space!
