Cloud Illusions : My Week in View
8th Jul 2014 Posted in: Abstract Paintings, Drawings 0

  Away from London for a week, needing visual stimulation and inspiration. Sometimes just looking at the sky can be enough. Suffolk skies never let me down, there the sky appears more open and fast-moving and after the often overcast skies of London the effect is exhilarating. Cloud illusions, water vapour light and air all conspire […]

This weekend and next I am showing work in a beautiful late Georgian London house with large, light rooms.

Light is the greatest mystery in the universe. We only perceive the world because of light.

The London Art Fair is also with us, or […]
