I am pleased to be invited to be part of this exciting project opening as part of the Singapore Art Week 06-15 January 2023 and joining colleagues and collaborators for the open seminar and launch at the National Institute of Education on the 12th of January. I will exhibit three pieces of work alongside fourteen international artists, academics and researchers – Identification l-lX, embroidery on canvas and Ono-Moiré and Moiré-Iè, ink on reused envelopes produced as part of a residency in Onomichi, Japan.
I am pleased to be part of this year’s Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize. It is a wonderful opportunity and honour to be one of the 94 selected artists and exhibit the drawing Moirè in the context of 113 works which share a collective drive to expand, challenge and champion a range of contemporary drawing and practice.
The Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2022 received over 3,200 entries from 1,617 drawing practitioners from 45 different countries for the exhibition. This large and diverse exhibition of 134 drawings reflects a broad range of current drawing practices. It includes works on paper, moving image and performance made by artists, architects, designers and makers at all stages of their careers living and working across the UK as well as in Australia, Chile, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Spain, and the USA.
The Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2022 is a free exhibition at Trinity Buoy Wharf – 84 Orchard Place, Poplar, London, E14 OJW. The exhibition opens from 29 September 2022 until 16 October 2022 before touring venues across the UK. A fully illustrated publication and public engagement programme will accompany the exhibition and tour.
Throughout the four-week RE- & DE- residency, I engaged with various approaches to instigating, building and developing a dialogue with Onomichi, fundamentally looking at drawing as a vehicle for and of correspondence across and between spaces, places, individuals and communities.
In July and August, I was in Japan participating in the first phase of the research and residency project – Re- & De-. The project partners are Onomichi City University, Japan and the Royal College of Art, UK. The research will take place in Japan, London and online via digital platforms over the next academic year. My fellow practitioners and researchers are RCA colleagues Dr Kyung Hwa Shon and Professor Tamaki Ono, and Associate Professor Yukata Inagawa from Onomichi City University. The project is supported by the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation and the Royal College of Art.

It was fantastic to be invited by Mindy Lee, curator of Blyth Arts, to hold an artists’ lead event with co-exhibitor Isabel Young as part of Fictions held at the Blyth Gallery Imperial College London between 08/06/22 – 07/07/22.
This is the second iteration of Fictions a two person exhibition project begun in 2020. The exhibition showcases new work exhibited for the first time.
This has been an exciting opportunity for Isabel Young and I to work with the curator Mindy Lee to expand notions and approaches to observed, recorded and imagined personal narratives in the space at the Blyth Gallery.

The show also includes the collaborative project RE – a unique collaborative artists book lead by Richard Nash and Gary Clough, including contributions from Isabel Young, Adam Knight, Susannah Haslam, Kyung Hwa Shon, Anna Beel, Alkesh Parmer and Linnet Hannan.
RE: Artists Book – 2022
I am very excited to be exhibiting again with artist and RCA colleague Isabel Young in the second iteration of Fictions at Blyth Gallery, Imperial College London, opening in June 2022.
Identification is an ongoing body of work which focuses on the nature of ID object classification tables and object ID silhouettes.
I am currently working on a series of nine 6 x 6-inch canvasses of constructed tables of embroidered objects. These will be exhibited alongside the second body of work developed as part of Fictions, a two-person exhibition with the artist Isabel Young at the Blyth Art Gallery at Imperial College London, in June 2022.
