Open House 05.18

Artists’ Open House and V&A Botanical Photography Course. May 2018.

I’ll be busy for the next couple of weekends. The Dulwich Festival Artists’ Open House begins this weekend where I will be showing lots of newly framed images in sizes A4 up to 30″x 40″. There will also be a selection of mounted and unframed work on sale. The address is 158 Overhill Road, London, SE22 0PS. 11am-6pm, 12 & 13 and 19 & 20 May. Prices from £70-£700. I’ll also be leading a two day botanical photography workshop at the Victoria & Albert Museum on 18th and 19th May. Sadly the course is now full but I’m looking forward to meeting the students and showing them some inspirational artwork in the V&A’s prints and drawings study room where they’ll be able to see botanical illustration, paintings and photographic prints before starting their own projects. (For this reason I won’t be there in person at the Open House on Sat 19th May).

Spring shows. February 2017.

I’m looking forward to adding another new tulip study to the collection at two forthcoming shows this spring. The Affordable Art Fair is at Battersea, London (9-12 March) and Midcentury Modern will be in Dulwich, London (19 March). The composition here, Mixed Tulips 2, was photographed last spring, and the current batches of tulips and other bulbs are just beginning to show signs of life for this year’s work.

This autumn some new prints have been on show in Stockholm and London. Here, Mixed Tulips 4, a composition of the tulips I grew in spring of this year includes Antraciet (magenta/crimson), Dolls’ Minuet (magenta, red flush), Orange Princess, Victoria’s Secret (purple parrot) and Blumex (orange parrot).

Tulips. April 2016.

Here are some of the ten dozen bulbs which I’ve been growing for my spring tulip project. From left, El Nino, Flaming Spring Green, Antraciet, Orange Princess. The studio is now (rather chaotically) packed with the flowers being used for my mixed plant compositions.
