"A Sense of Space" (Piers Feetham Gallery)

10th – 14th September 2019

I am returning to London after a successful time at the Untitled Art fair in 2016 for a one-man exhibition at the Piers Feetham Gallery, Fulham. I am showing a broad selection of work done over the last three years. The paintings continue my explorations of the Devon Landscape, Morocco, Spain, and most recently the Austrian Alps as well as the still life genre. As ever I am exploring the territory that lies between abstraction and figuration. The work ranges from direct observational painting to larger more complex abstract pieces that improvise with this material.

Articles have been published about the exhibition in the Kensington and Chelsea Review and Galleries magazine.

I hope to see you at some point during the exhibition.

The work on display in my second exhibition at the Chagford Inn explores the landscape of Devon and the mysterious architectural spaces of Marrakesh. The particular Dartmoor sites I have painted from are at Meldon Hill, painting to a much more formal abstract language as in the case of some Brat Tor and Spreyton.

As ever I have used a variety of approaches, ranging from direct observational of the Moroccan series. I have also been interested in incorporating the figure in a number of these. The more abstract pieces aim to distil experience and memory.
