SPEED/STILL OPEN STUDIO (2nd -15th September.)
Exhibiting at Goodwood, especially at the Revival is always a compromise. This year the inner market area has yet again been made smaller and all the retailers have been squeezed into tighter spaces. Which is fine if you’re selling shoes and books but alas if you want to view large works of art, it’s not ideal. Paintings blowing around in tents, bad light, bad weather, everyone squeezed together. No time to view things properly, hey, you’re there to watch cars racing!
A fair number of you have visited my studio in South London and have had the pleasure of viewing the work there.So after much consideration this year, I’m not exhibiting at the Revival. However I have come up with what I hope will become a yearly event of my own. From the 2nd -15th September to coincide with the Revival dates, I’m expanding the hanging area from just the studio to include most of the ground floor of my home. So you can view the art in slightly better conditions than a wet, windy cramped tent at Goodwood. All the current large wall mounted sculptures will be displayed. As well as many back-lit editions (which can only be displayed and enjoyed in controlled indoor conditions). Also to be shown will be work in progress relating to editions which will be completed over the coming winter months. To temp you further, a few of the editions will be offered at a slightly lower price.
You’ll be offered tea, coffee, a slice of cake and the time, and much more importantly the space and light to really get to see the editions properly.I cannot stress how important it is to view art in the right conditions. Paintings hung at the correct height, in the right light. Sculptures set on coffee or dining tables, so you can sit and view them as you would in your own home or work space.
My location is based very close to Crystal Palace in south London, just a 20 minute drive from junction 4 or 7 on the M25. So if you have flown in for the Revival or are just driving to the event and go close to London, an extra hour or so added to the journey might be worth your while?
Please phone either the studio on 020 8778 3188 or mobile, 07885 765 460 to arrange a day and to let us know, what time we should be putting the kettle on!
