You are "colourfully" invited to two upcoming art exhibitions


Open Invitation Flyer

16 Oct - 16 Nov 2015 Arte Vecchiato, Padova, Italy
I have worked almost exclusively with the human form throughout my career and ‘Solid Air‘ is the latest solo exhibition since my very first pioneering solo show in London in 1984. Since that exhibition a whole new genre of steelmesh art has evolved and continues to grow.

A Different Colour … the Fluorescents
Colour shock - provocative and shocking new colours move the visual emphasis of my sculpture from graphic linear description of body and form to timbre, character and identity achieved through the use of colour and pigment where each one is unique. The new fluorescents demonstrate that these sculptures are as much about light as they are about sculptural form and graphic rendition.


Using a pure bronze mesh as a surface for his palette of high-saturation colour, the translucent medium becomes even more volatile and optically unstable - monochrome becomes ‘Colour Field‘ and impossible to identify as a specific colour. Light reflected back through the transparent sculpture using different coloured painted backdrop canvases dissolves and mixes the surface colour of the figure into shimmering new colours and colour washes, perpetually changing, as the eye explores the artwork.
