Public Pages Exhibition

The web site is now up for the Public Pages Exhibition.
Public Pages is an exhibition of Text Art and Visual Poetry bringing together contributions from poets, artists and makers of works which explore the visual and cultural impact of the word, the sign, and the slogan in public space. I have my 50% Happier piece in it.

Oxford House Show

I am very excited to say that I have a big show coming up! The curator at OH! Arts loves my paintings and I will have about 25 large ones up in the big space. I will be sharing the space with a sculptor who has one enormous white or colourless inflatable piece that will be downstairs. I am working on 2 very large pieces for the biggest walls and five 150cm paintings for the other walls. There also will be an assortment of paintings from the last 3 years, sort of a survey.

I think I will call it Colour Matters. It is a lovely space with a high conservatory roof for the upstairs, so lots of light. And interestingly 1 wall upstairs and 2 downstairs are different shades of red.

Watch this space for more information. I still haven't met my co-exhibitor yet, so there will be lots more info coming about her! I also have so much work still to do! So excited!

Oxford House is in Bethnal Green in East London. The show will run from May 3 to the end of May 2007. Private view is set for May 3, 6:00 to 9:00.

This is a snapshot of the corner of my studio yesterday, the paintings are piling up and the in-progress work is everywhere. I see many long days of work ahead of me for the next few weeks, materials to be delivered and canvases to stretch, and lots of painting. This show is going to be great!
