LUNANGEL is a new larger-scale silver sculpture recently placed by CONTINI ART UK of New Bond Street, London. The news is that ContiniArt now represent me exclusively in London.

Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden

See all images of wire-mesh sculptures in this beautiful garden here

Heralded as the first of it's kind in the UK, The Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden has been proudly exhibiting contemporary sculpture in a unique and magical environment for over 30 years. This summer I am very pleased to be able to exhibit sculptures TUUSUM, SQUERE, CIRCA and CIRCUM in this beautiful park. The white abstract sculptures are the first of their kind to be exhibited outdoors and are themes developed out of the CIRRUS and ARIOS series of indoor artworks which were commissioned for 8 Northumberland, Trafalgar Square and Conning Asset Management, The Monument, London.
Changes: Owner and curator Hannah Peschar of the renowned sculpture garden Surrey has stepped back to allow a new pairing of curators to add their stamp to the Sculpture Garden. Along with Anthony Paul, curator Vikki Leedham has designed this year's exhibition.
The garden is now open on Thursdays throughout the summer, as well as Friday to Sunday.

Mesh sculpture SOLUS at Fern de la Gorra, Southern France

Marshall Murray Bespoke. British. Beautiful.
It's good to once again feel
the warmth of the sun on the palms of my hands – even if it's only on the palms of my double self-portrait currently exhibited as a pair with Marshall Murray Gallery at Fern de La Gorra, Southern France.

In September 2015 Marshall Murray ran an exhibition in southern France. The project was a collaboration with the award-winning International garden designer James Basson, his sumptuous planting juxtaposed with sculpture. James is one of the world’s top garden designers, in 2015 he had just won golds at the Chelsea Flower Show, the Gardening World Cup and completed projects that saw him win some of the most prestigious awards available from the Society of Garden Designers.
Lighting of the garden was installed by Jean-Phillipe Weimer, an incredible lighting artist and creator of exquisite hand-made garden pieces.
Around 40 of pieces were transported to a stunning garden near Monaco.
Marshall Murray loves bringing a slice of British life to the Cote d’Azur, hosting viewings in the still baking hot early evening sunshine and inviting artists to meet and mingle over glasses of rosé.


Vecchiato Arte in Pietrasanta


Vecchiato Arte presented my recent solo show SOLID AIR which was a great event and big success. Their seasonal gallery in Pietrasanta also exhibits a selection of my sculpture from mid June - don’t miss out on this famous art event in the beautiful village when in Italy - truly a Tuscany highlight near the Apuan Alps with marble quarries: Vecchiato Arte's seasonal gallery is Via E. Basanti 31, 55045 Pietrasanta (LU).

Another new and exciting collaboration for this summer is my solo sculpture exhibition with Galerie Hegemann, Munich, Germany.

Soon to be installed, a specially made and very unusual "wire sculpture" which is literally "a portrait" of the steel-mesh medium itself, will soon be installed in their reception area and is appropriately entitled "United Wire".
