I was thrilled to have been selected by the curatorial committee from Eye of the Collector to exhibit my piece, Balancing Act. This exhibition was held in the wonderful space that is Two Temple Place…
About last night… David Hockney Bigger and Closer at Lightroom. I was chatting with the legend David Hockney. Years ago, I painted his biographical portrait which includes numerous newspaper clippings. Hockney recognize his dog Boodgie and seemed to like the headline: Hockney cooler than Warhol, more enduring than Freud.
I was creating smaller hearts for one of my collectors and she commissioned me to make a stand alone, large heart on a plinth. This was something I had never done before and I really enjoyed the process. Once this was finished and I started to show it on my Instagram page, I was then commissioned to create several more. You can see from the other images that I have also made them in porcelain roses too!
I often have visitors to my studio in Primrose Hill and I was delighted to welcome the Ladies of St Johns Wood and Kensington to the studio recently. We enjoyed some breakfast before I took them on a guided tour. I try to show all areas of my portfolio, from painting to sculpture. While talking to the Ladies I was reminded of a lovely story. My biggest inspiration was the artist John Chamberlain. He was an American sculptor and painter who created pieces of art, mainly from automobile parts.
This artwork was built precariously with the objects balancing in unpredictable ways, reflecting the feeling I get about life. Sometimes, when I am overwhelmed, I question, will everything stay balanced and will it all work out? Will one of the pieces just fall away?
