I will be showing two large paintings from my Dénia series in the Genius in Beauty group exhibition at the A&D Gallery in Marylebone, central London (51 Chiltern Street, W1U 6LY) on 19-23 September (gallery opening hours are 10.30-7pm Mon-Fri, 10.30-6pm Sat and there will be free coffee and croissants for all visitors on Saturday 23rd from 11 to 12.30pm). The exhibition is organised by The Hornshaw Gallery, who represent me along with Degree Art (you can see my available work on the Hornshaw Gallery website here).
The Dénia series is an ongoing strand of work based on childhood and adolescence memories of the area near the town of Dénia, in Eastern Spain. The idea originated as an exercise in an abstract painting course at Central St Martins led by abstract painter Guy Noble, who encouraged us to produce work based on material with a strong emotional content. The series is inspired entirely by memory rather than by any actual imagery or physical mementos. Thus its theme is the persistence and emotional content of memory and the solidity of sensory impressions formed at an early age (light, colour, texture, the elements, the wind and the sea). This is an exciting opportunity as it is the first time I show more than one painting from the series together.
The PV will be held on Tuesday 19th at 6.30-9pm and is by invitation only so anyone interested in attending please drop me a line beforehand- Thanks!
