Right, new year, new subjects….
First things first, Goodwood Festival of Speed is now booked. Stand 270 for anyone who’s attending. You’ll find us in roughly the same spot as 2016. (Only exhibited at the Revival last year.) So we are in the main market area.
Hopefully if all the plans for 2018 go correctly, two new large race car subjects will have been sculpted, cast, painted and on display. The first one, (see image below) is coming along nicely, it’ll be a wall mounted edition, not too sure on the edition number yet, due to time and costings. But be warned, it’ll be controversial! Or as they say ‘thought provoking’ I’ll say nothing more at this stage apart from I’m currently reading a nice little book entitled “Hitler’s Motor Racing Battles- The silver arrows under the Swastika” By Eberhard Reuss. Just proving even back in the day if you throw more money than everyone else at a race car, chances are you’ll end up with a winner! Albeit at the time it was the Third Reich who were doing the throwing!
Another F1 subject will also be completed. Although plans as to exactly which one are still currently up in the air.
Entered one of my big sculptures into this years summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy. Time will tell if it’s included. I’ll find out if I’m over the first fence at the end of March. And that the news for Jan….and probably Feb…
