Off The Wall, The 9th Terrace Annual Open

'Off The Wall'
The 9th Terrace Annual Open, London
August 9th

I have a painting in this show curated by Karl Bielik, about, among other things, the passage of time and decay.  It is fascinating to see the works in the walled garden space that show varying amounts of change - some more recent works have been nearly destroyed by the elements while others that have been exposed for longer loss less worse for wear.

Lots of images of the exhibition can be seen on the Facebook page.

Here is a panoramic photo I took of the left side of the garden wall:
