Ghosts of Gone Birds Brighton November 1st 2012 – January 31st 2013

Pin It

 

It’s great to let you know that I’m currently exhibiting as part of the ‘Ghosts of Gone Birds’ exhibition at the great new ONCA Gallery Brighton.  The ‘Ghosts of Gone Birds’ is an ongoing art project dedicated to ‘breathing life back into the birds we have lost-so we don’t lose anymore’.  After seeing the project in London back in November 2011 just after ‘A Natural History (Part Two)’  I knew that it was something that I wanted to get involved in.

The show includes work from a number of artists including Peter Blake, Ralph Steadman and Jamie Hewlett and I’ve included ‘Dodo (Raphus cucullatus)’ from ‘A Natural History (Part Two)’ as the only extinct bird from the series.

I’m now working with Michael Blencowe from the Sussex Wildlife Trust to produce two brand new pieces which will be unveiled in the new year– so watch this space for further developments and updates of how we get on!

Michaelmas Exhibition at the Trinity Gallery Hastings

Pin It

 

For those of you who have visited the site before you may remember that both myself and painter Andrew Redden showed together for the first time in July 2012 at the Trinity Gallery Hastings. Entitled ‘Our Common Land’ the exhibition focused on the inspiration and influence that we both draw from the natural landscapes that we find around us.

Following on from the interest and success that we had from that particular exhibition both myself and Andrew brought a selection of new work together for a festive exhibition called ‘Michaelmas’.  The exhibition ran from the 19th November -2nd December  but fear not of you missed it as it will be especially re-hung for the week before Christmas.

Here’s a few photographs I’d like to share of the bird prints shown as part of ‘Michaelmas’ exhibition.  Most of the work that I showed comes from ‘A Natural History (Part Three)’ and includes birds such as the Jackdaw (my current favourite!), Red-legged Partridge, Turtle Dove, Short-eared Owl and Collared Dove.   The full screen-printed collection of which will be shown in 2013.

A big thank you also goes out to everyone who came and to Gavin and Rachel of Trinity Gallery.

Exhibition Photos from ‘A NATURAL HISTORY (Living Landscapes)’

Pin It

 

It was a busy July with  ‘A NATURAL HISTORY’ appearing in three exhibitions.  Here’s a few photographs of both my bird and landscape wildlife prints that were shown as part of ‘A Natural History (Living Landscapes)’ at the Linklater Pavilion in Lewes between the 14th & 22nd July 2012.  The exhibition formed a large part of the Sussex Wildlife Trusts ‘Living Landscape Festival’ which ran for the whole week and I had a great time meeting lots of like-minded people.

In addition to the exhibition both myself and Michael Blencowe of the Sussex Wildlife Trust worked together with Compass Community Arts and the Linklater Pavilion’s very own Nature Corridor Group to deliver a few wildlife related relief printmaking workshops. It was great to see people having so much interest and enthusiasm in both the birds and other wildlife we have in our local area.

Thanks  to everyone who managed to make it to the show both during the week and to the preview on evening of the 13th July.  It was a lovely evening with the Oyster Project providing the bar and music and I hope that everyone who came managed to see the talk that was given by the inspirational Michael Blencowe.

Exhibition Photos from ‘Our Common Land’ at the Trinity Gallery Hastings

Here’s a few photographs I’d like to share of the bird prints shown as part of ‘Our Common Land’ at the fabulous new  Trinity Gallery in Hastings.  The show was initially scheduled to run between the 7th July – 20th July 2012 but it ended up running for an extra week which meant the last day was on the 28th July!  Although I say it myself the show did look good and we had a lot of great feedback.   People thought that both mine and Andy Redden’s work very much complemented each other- so much so that there is talk that we may have another show later in the year so watch this space for details!

Thanks to everyone who managed to make it to the show both during its run and to the preview on evening of the 6th July.

A big thank you also goes out to everyone who bought work and to Gavin and Rachel of Trinity Gallery who invited us to do show in the first place and did a brilliant job of pulling it all together.

It’s the beginning of spring and with it a number of birds from ‘A Natural History’ have migrated a few miles north of Lewes and are now showing at The Hawth Theatre in Crawley.  Having been offered the fantastic opportunity to use all the available hanging space at The Hawth it was great to see the prints from both ‘A Natural History’ parts one & two being displayed together for the first time.

Exhibition Photos from ‘A Natural History (Part Two)’

Here are a few photographs I’d like to share of the bird and wildlife prints shown as part of ‘A NATURAL HISTORY (Part Two)’ at the Linklater Pavilion in Lewes between the 19th & 27th November 2011.  I had a great week meeting and having conversations with lots of people not only about the work but also shared interests in birds, wildlife and the local area.  Although I spent most of the time at the Linklater I did manage to skive off for an hour or so on the Thursday  to see the wonderful short-eared owls at Rodmell which was fantastic.

Thanks  to everyone who managed to make it to the show both during the week and to the preview on evening of the 18th November.  It was a lovely evening with the Oyster Project providing the bar and music and I hope that everyone who came managed to see the talks given by Michael Blencowe of the Sussex Wildlife Trust.

Work on ‘A NATURAL HISTORY (Part Three)’ has already begun and will be shown later in the year.
