* I've got a little surprise for you all!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many artists have found themselves without work, teaching (including myself), technical support, gallery work. Exhibitions and sales have disappeared. In an attempt to help alleviate some of this stress @matthewburrowsstudio -instagram- has instigated the ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE #artistsupportpledge
I have joined this pledge and I've made a few works available, on view on this site #artistsupportpledge . All works are no more than £200 (and less), excluding shipping, and once I reach £1000 of sales i pledge to buy another artist's work , and donate 10% to my local food bank.
These are extraordinary times. GENEROSITY IS CONTAGIOUS
* I am honoured and proud that my work got a mention on this wonderful book AMALGAMA, WOMEN, IDENTITY & DIASPORA, published in october 2019. Edited by Daniela Galan for ART AMALGAMA - a platform for the promotion of Latin American Art in europe and the USA. Beautifully written, in depth, form and content, this is a bilingual book (English and spanish) and promises to be an important reference for the future. The book is available here
This is the first (rough version) of a series of video made for contemplation in times of quarantine. IN the middle of global confinement amidst COVID-19, experts say that contemplation of nature, even watching nature documentaries, will ease our levels of anxiety, and helps us during these days of uncertainty. The first of these videos has been made using work of mine from the ATC Charcoal big format drawings, ATC pencil and Midnight drawings, with music made by Q-IRKY (aka Carlos Izsak) who sampled jungle sounds. I want these videos to be shareable on social media for everyone to enjoy. And soon I will be adding a link for a free PDF for the accompanying (my first!) colouring book!
