The Shambala series is about the dangers of black and white thinking, contrasting mirror images of festival scenes. One side is purely black and white, and the other side is in full colour. Different perspectives give us different ways to see the world, but some of them don’t give us the full picture- black and white thinking can lose much of the truth. Mirror images in my paintings are metaphors for alternate realities, possibilities, or parallel universes.

Image Transfer Painting at West Dean College 23-25 June 2017

 

Let_Them_Eat_Hash_BrowniesI’ll be teaching a weekend course 23-25 June 2017 at the breathtakingly beautiful West Dean College- the arts and crafts college founded by Edward James, patron to Magritte, Dali, and Leonora Carrington, amongst others.

This course is suitable for all- whether you have some experience with acrylic image or have never held a paintbrush in your life. Acrylic image transfer is simple, non-toxic, inexpensive and amazingly versatile. It can be incorporated into many forms of art, as it can be applied to any surface that will take acrylic paint. On this course we will explore it in the context of painting: this is a technique that you can take home with you to explore more fully and continue experimenting with.

Summer FLUX at The Chelsea College of Art 12th – 16th July

The Cookhouse Gallery, The Triangle Space and Outdoor installation in the Parade Ground (facing Tate Britain)

FLUX Exhibition is a groundbreaking and exciting art event – a collection of the most dynamic painters, performance artists and musicians, which presents an alternative way to encounter today’s best new art.

FLUX has established itself as the platform for contemporary artists to be discovered and to be part of an exceptional, unconventional art event. Hosted by the Chelsea College of Art and curated by Lisa Gray founder of FLUX, this fourth much anticipated edition of FLUX brings 90 artists to the fore. Gray will be selecting the very best emerging talent for a five day interactive art event.

Gray says “FLUX is not a fair or a normal exhibition. FLUX is a unique experience for both artists and art lovers. Each artists work is considered so it does not compete with other work but stands alone and shines in its own light. The support we have gathered since the first exhibition has cemented our place in the contemporary art world and allowed us to continue to be creative.”

FLUX comes alive with musical guests and performance art installations, which complement the work and bring a new experimental approach to the exhibition.

The show represents a rare opportunity to gain direct access to a diverse group of gifted artists, on the path to being the big names of tomorrow. Showcasing new talents in a collaborative, curated show, FLUX celebrates dynamic emerging artists on the precipice of wider accolade and fame.

We have been featured in publications such as Time Out, Aesthetica, Fad Magazine, Galleries, Glamour Mag, and many more.
