I will be showing this new work, Reclining Nude, as part of the Creekside Open selected by Dexter Dalwood at APT gallery, opening on 12th May until 27th May. There will be a rather fine opening festivity on saturday 14th May 3-6pm, it would be lovely to see you all there.The exhibition will be open Thursday to Sunday from 12noon to 5pm and at other times by appointment.

My work is made reproductions of portrait paintigns from pages from Auction catalogues that have been cut to form an abstracted image. The work is full of interesting contradictions, some of which are below.

Painting / Not Painting

Beauty /Destroy

Drawing / Not Drawing

Cut away / Create

Portrait /Abstract

Old / New

Information / Mis-information

Representational / Non-representational

Obscure / Reveal

Of value / Worthless

Sir Matthew Smith / Andrew Bracey

Paper / Oil on canvas

Etc / Full stop
