A new collection of both large and small scale works.
Preview evening Friday 1st September 6.00 pm - 9.00 pm
Please email using contacts page to request preview tickets.
Each ticket admits two people, all welcome.


This new exhibition includes work from three ongoing series “Token” “Quilt” and “Linear Land”
While all three series stand alone in their own right, they are inextricably linked through their use of materials, mark making and preoccupation of subject matter, the elemental effect of time, and the fragility and preservation of time worn surfaces.
I am intrigued by the partially revealed, and our innate ability to extract information from the eroded remnants which remain, traces offering insight into a tangible connection, in both an historical and aesthetic sense.
Mark making is paramount throughout my work, obscured symbols and  altered text offer a  universal linguistic affinity, while an overlaid colour palette allow the works to be read as a whole.
The symbiosis of fragility offering permanence draws on the practice of “make do and mend” In that nothing is broken, it just requires repair, and additional evidence of repair as in the Japanese art of Kintsugi and Boro is to be valued through extending the life and purpose of something.
Mending and preserving are attributes which feature throughout my work, joining and fixing small artworks together to form a new whole, with visible fastenings becoming an increasingly integral part.
