    Royal Scottish Academy - 195th Annual Exhibition
    3 April - 30 May 2021

    I got accepted for this year RSA Annual exhibition, and... my work 'Under Construction' has been highlighted by Selection Commitee members as one of the 'Ten Works: The Convenors' Highlights'

    At the Exhibition Opening Ceremony, Jo Ganter RSA commented:
    "the choice of such an un-aesthetic subject as 3 bags of waste slumped against a wall intrigued me and brought to mind Christo's wrapped objects. The painting of these shiny pale blue sacks, each half full of rubble - I imagine - is skillful: every crease and shadow exquisitely rendered. I'm always moved by the attention and respect that craft-skill can give to ordinary objects. It's a reason for painting in an age flooded with images that are made fast and posted"

    The Annual Exhibition is the core of the RSA’s exhibition programme, and represents the Academy’s commitment to promoting excellence in visual art in Scotland. The RSA Annual Exhibition is the most extensive exhibition of contemporary art and architecture in Scotland.

    Having been a mainstay of the academy's calendar since its inception 195 years ago, the Annual Exhibition has evolved over the years, providing a platform for Scottish art alongside international artists, often including topical or political elements, to give an uncensored, independent voice to artists.

    ING Discerning Eye Exhibition
    19 November - 31 December 2020

    Happy to have two works selected for the Discerning Eye Exhibition !!

    The Discerning Eye annual exhibition is a show of small works independently selected by six prominent figures from different areas of the art world: two artists, two collectors and two critics.

    For the first time last year the ING Discerning Eye exhibition was held online. A virtual gallery of the works was published where viewers could browse and buy the works on show.

    The Discerning Eye is committed to helping artists increase their visibility among peers and collectors and giving them a platform to grow. That was true more than ever in 2020 and the online submission process made it even easier for artists to take part. As a result there were a bumper number of entries with over 600 artists and nearly 1000 works. There were a range of prizes totaling over £12,000 in value, including the ING Purchase Prize worth £5,000.

    Short video about my art practice (2017)

    Directed by Matt Mead 

    From: https://mattmead.co.uk
    "...I bring creative story-telling, moving image and sound to a range of contexts: from cinema screen to social media, single to multiscreen/site-specific content, using specifically shot footage, archive, motion graphics and other digital media. I work variously as a creative lead on a project, in collaboration with other artists, and/or as part of a team or production crew."

    Solo show in the heart of Mayfair’s art district

    HOME Exhibition
    28 October - 4 November 2017

    Presented by Random Artists Collective

    Nestled amongst the industrial hinterlands of Manor House, in a creative zone yet to be hit by the surge of development and gentrification sweeping across the metropolis, you can find a free entry, wild and untamed festival of art in all its various guises.

    Random Artists have a history of staging such events since 2001 and for their main show this year they are exploring the subjective notion of home in a diverse and immersive show – featuring fine art, installations, performance, film, music and workshops.

    Random Artists traditionally operate an organic and independent event called Temporary Autonomous Art, which uses the tactics of DIY culture to create artist-led free spaces that are open for anyone to exhibit and perform within. Taking a step towards the curated and planned Home event will not depart from the same free spirit, and artist involvement will be employed to make a unique and thought provoking environment for all those who enter.
