Seeing the forecast a week ahead of Urban Art Brixton I thought I'd create something equally as hot so leading up to the event I painted five layers of acrylic, from lemon yellow up to that fluorescent red at the top, framed it up and made it the centrepiece of my pitch. It certainly turned heads, all weekend, but I thought I was going to be taking it home with me. Then, almost at the end of day day 2 it was bought. For someone who has been focusing on texture and neutral tones of late it was a very bright surprise. One I'm keen to try some more of, so as soon as the Dante's Car Park series is done [I'm a third of the way through that] I will return to this, along with matt and gloss contrasts I think.
Townhouse Open, Spitalfields [until September 4th]
