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!
I'm pleased to say that the above two works will be part of the New Faces 2023 show at Sprout Arts from Tuesday 17th -Saturday 28th January.
Some dates for your diaries for October and November

Private Views on October 7th and November 10th and a closing party on November 27th.
Thank you to everyone that turned out for my Private View. I feel there were a lot of unfinished conversations as I tried to speak to everybody. Thanks also to Leslie from the Brixton Bugle for this review. Top that off with a couple of sales and I think that was a successful evening.
Just over 2.5 hours to hang 18 paintings. One useless spirit level and some unplanned for cable lengths but we got there. Might look a little wonky in parts [if you look too hard] but it'll be fine. Just need Brixton Brewery to get their delivery here on time for the drinks on Thursday evening now! One of the quirks of having an exhibition in a library space is you may have to share the room at times. Opening day is one of those times. There will be a bazaar being held on the 14th, so if you visit you might also pick up a bargain of some sort. So I won't be invigilating tomorrow as I will only get in the way.
