I am very excited to have been invited to exhibit my work at Painters + Collection 2021, at Nakata Museum, Japan. 21 artists from Japan, Korea, Mexico and the UK are showing work alongside the museum’s collection of 19th and 20th-century paintings, curated by Yuko Kunichika.
The series Sampler l – lV are cross stitch on canvas produced in collaboration with Linnet Hannan, are now to be included as part of the group show Agency in October.
The exhibition runs from Wednesday 3rd October – Saturday 27th October 2018. Artists Event Wednesday 10th October 6-8.00 pm – all welcome.
Sketchbooks are an intrinsic and integral part of my practice, a place where I collate, record and synthesize viewed and remembered experiences.
I am currently obsessed with comicbook-like hieroglyphs, in search of or potentially reliant on a visual equivalent to the Rosetta Stone, combining the recognized, the invented and the possible. These draw from a range of real and imagined destinations and cultural references, many from regular visits to China.
As a precursor to my next lecture visit to China later this month here are a couple of promotional items and some photos from the previous tours of 2016.
