It's time to release my large paintings to the viewing public after over a year of hard work. I am very much looking forward to my Solo Exhibition at Lopo Gallery. I have been working with the Gallery for a while but this will be my most ambitious show thus far, with one painting in particular that took me six months to finish. I have posted some of the pieces in my blog here, but there will be plenty of previously unseen works, and to be honest the pictures hardly do just to the ink paintings because they have lots of little details that get lost by the lens. Come in to see it in person if possible!
I'll also be in the Gallery the week before the opening working on some installations to go with the artwork. I think that if given the opportunity, making an environment in the gallery around my art is the way to go. I find that as artists we can expand on our concepts by not limiting the expression to the rectangular shape of the art, but to let people walk into a room and become submerged in their surroundings, that's what it is to be generous with ones work. That will be my goal in May, to create an environment not just a show. I look forward to the challenge!
