investigating my space

I am undertaking a PhD in Fine Art to focus my research and painting on my specific area of interest surrounding the anxious uncanny and the anxious space.  This will be an extended journey of investigation not only through my own art practice, but also within the psychological space of others along the way.  Who these people or […]

Dorothea Tanning: Web of Dreams at Alison Jacques Gallery

Notes for an Apocalypse (1978), Oil on Canvas (50 x 62″) I love this Dorothea Tanning quote that has been used within her Press Release for her second solo exhibition of works at Alison Jacques Gallery, London entitled ‘Web of Dreams‘ from 11 July – 27 September 2014.

Writing Through Grief

At times of grief I have hailed the power of the written word as a cathartic expression of myself. Words don’t talk back but words that are written can be re read and held as moments that express feelings in no other way.

Adrian Ghenie, ‘Self-Portrait’ as Charles Darwin, 2014, Oil on Canvas (60 x 47cm)   Finally, after a long wait, Adrian Ghenie is back exhibiting at The Pace Gallery, London with some new works by the Romanian artist whom I follow intently!

    Image: Fondamenta della Carne, 2014, oil on copper, 180 x 110 cm – detail Another exhibition that I will be virtually visiting and wishing I was there ‘in the flesh’. ‘In the flesh’ is a term that could be used about Nicola Samori’s work quite readily.  There is a feeling with much of his […]

Mersad Berber: Memorial Exhibition 1940 – 2012

      Mersad Berber is sadly an artist I was not familiar with before I was sent information on this memorial exhibition.  Taken far too early, his works are so inspiring and filled with an intensity of spirit that perhaps only comes from living through the chaos of the Balkan wars of the 1990s. […]

Johannes Kahrs ‘Tropical Nights’ at Kunsthall Nurnberg, Nuremberg, Germany (April 2 – June 22, 2014)

Another exhibition I would love to go to but probably won’t be able to as the timings are wrong.  Kahrs has a new exhibition of his work in Nuremberg (Nurnberg), Germany from April.  Born in Bremen but lives in Berlin – his work has been a firm favourite of mine for a while. Kahrs work […]
