From ArtCan With Love – fundraiser 2nd September on Zoom
Historically one of the most fun fundraisers I've attended, the From ArtCan With Love postcard sale was held on Zoom this year. I was glad that my 2 paintings donated sold. More information on activities will come soon.
The Other Art Fair
I don't actually know when my next live fair will be as The Other Art Fair at the Truman Brewery in London has again been postponed from October till next Spring. In the meantime The Other Art Fair has set up an online Open Studio where some of my work is now available to buy.
Please contact me direct should you have any questions. Thank you.
I've contributed to this initiative and am posting images of work for sale on my Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn accounts.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many artists have found themselves without work, teaching, technical support, gallery work. Exhibitions and sales have disappeared. In an attempt to help alleviate some of this stress artist #matthewburrows instigated the ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE #artistsupportpledge.
The concept is a simple one. Artists post images of their work which they are willing to sell for no more than £200 each (not including shipping.) Every time they reach £1000 of sales they pledge to buy another artist's work for £200. This has been hugely successful for many so I encourage you to look at what is being posted. Please email or message me directly if there is anything you'd be interested in as these pieces are only sold direct.
Using brush, gesso, ink, paint and gilding my work aims to capture the essence of an important moment: a fleeting experience, a passing feeling, an elusive memory.
Here is a selection of my most recent work showing a return to the Bi or disc.
I gave myself the format of the circle within a square with each painting developing organically from the previous one.
Not every piece in the series is here – there are smaller ones too, so please contact me if you would like to see more.
I really enjoy commissions and frequently work with interior designers, art consultants , architects and developers as well as private individuals who have a particular project or space in mind.
Everything begins with a conversation so please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to find out more. I’d be delighted to have a chat to discuss any ideas you may have and how we can make it work for your budget.
