For me the increase in scale is the most engaging aspect of these playful sculptures, placed out of context and amongst the tree lined grounds of Houghton Hall. To understand the human form is to study what lies beneath the skin and Damien Hirst gives us a glimpse of this in Virgin Mother. The spot paintings appear throughout the house and have replaced the family portraits, they look spectacular and transform the ornate interiors. If you get chance to visit observe the scale of the dots as you move through the exhibition. Exhibition runs to 15th July 2018 selected days only.
Two of my artworks have been selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2018. I decided to respond to the call out by Grayson Perry to produce work for his 'Room of Fun'. The two original works have now sold but Limited Edition prints are available, 33x33cm.
The exhibition runs until 19th August 2018.
I donated a Red Rabbit Paul Smith print today to raise money for Maggie’s Nottingham, they support people affected by cancer. Delighted to say that print 17/150 now belongs to the chair of Nottingham Playhouse Trust. I met some amazing patients and wonderful volunteers. The ladies lunch was hosted by Saint James Hotel, Nottingham and Mark Dennison from Radio Nottingham. If anyone would like to purchase a print they are available to order with a donation to Maggie’s.
I have had a few requests to purchase Limited Edition prints so here are the ones I have available £55 including postage 33x33cm (£40 to collect). The purple bee with the vintage background is framed and is £95 without postage. CONTACT
