I was very pleased to hear that ‘Big Rock Mountain’ has been selected for the Gallery at Green + Stone’s Summer Exhibition.
I’m looking forward to seeing the exhibition in Chelsea. It’s on from 25 July–21 August,10 AM–5 PM at 251-253 Fulham Rd., London SW3 6HY.
The gallery is next door to their shop, which supplies specialist Art Materials & was first established in the Kings Road Chelsea in 1927. Customers included David Hockney, Francis Bacon, Damien Hirst, Lucien Freud, Quentin Blake and Henry Moore (and me – haha)
It was quite special to be able to attend ‘Varnishing Day’ at the Royal Academy recently. Starting with a walk over to St James’ Piccadilly for a ‘Service for Artists’, then back for a reception and a first look at our paintings on the wall. My landscape is in room V11 and the room has been curated beautifully (we all agreed) by Farshid Moussavi RA.
Here’s a link to a video of it:- .a short walk-through room V11 at the Summer Exhibition
I’m still in a state of shock and surprise to hear that ‘Bradwell from Tollesbury’ has been shortlisted for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2022 – I had to read the email 3 times to make sure!
The painting is on canvas and is a mixed media landscape of Tollesbury salt marshes in Essex a weird and wonderful place, overlooking the river Blackwell estuary across to Bradwell sands and the decommissioned power station and is one of a series I’ve made of the area.
