Over a month without an update! How did that happen. Probably because I have been painting and there have been lots of of domestic things to deal with: Electricians, refits and decorating plans.. My Boxpark pop-up with Martyn Woods is just over two weeks away and I have 15 paintings for that on the go and three more to start on. They are all loosely based around a grid derived from doors of a shipping container. Boxpark is called that after the nickname for shipping ports and is constructed out of repurposed shipping containers. So it seemed kind of fitting to use them as a theme. The one above is one of 10 6" cradled wood panels [50mm deep] that can be displayed stacked in a shipping container stylee or just hung alone in a more traditional way. I also have four 12" panels and two each of 16" and 20" sizes . I may well take some other work too, after we are open. The black and white chevrons are a nod to Boxpark's branding. Anyway, can't stop... There's a deadline looming and there's plenty of shop admin to do as well as the painting.
Four Red Dots
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...

Solo Shows For 2023
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.
