Nothing Endures but Change



'Nothing Endures but Change' is on now at the St Johns Churchyard in Waterloo. This is a beautiful tranquil, garden in the heart of London. It is now a temporary home to over 40 sculptures. I have hung a paper sculpture 'Noch' from a huge plane tree. Susan Haire has curated this extraordinary exhibition, she has put in a huge amount of work behind the scenes which contrasts with a seemingly effortless and relaxed exhibition.  The works are hugely varied, something for everyone. Many thanks to all involved

the London Group and me

I am thrilled that I shall be taking part in a London Group AS A MEMBER!!!  http://www.thelondongroup.com
This show, in a central London churchyard, will have over thirty artists exhibiting and I shall be hanging a very pink sculpture high, I don't think it will be difficult to find!
The London Group has a rich and diverse group of artists and I am delighted to have been invited into such fine company.

thermals in the sunshine

The last few days have, at last, seen some sunshine. The spring this year has been very late and we have had a lot of rain. From the depths of a long winter we have gone straight to high summer heat with April temperatures being broken. However, my studio has its own version of air con - it is a concrete building that never warms up- and I still have my padded shirt on. I have been doing a lot of finishing stuff, plinths mostly, for the 'Hampstead Art Fair' and 'Testing 1,2,3.....' The paint has dried really quickly in the sunshine and I am wearing my padded shirt indoors.

Apparently, not ready for my close up

I didn't get much work done today. The studios are on a dead end road so there isn't much traffic (apart from the fab taxi garage next door), but I found loads of people milling around right outside my studio, camera tracks and umpteen cameras, chaps waving sound recording poles, make up artistes, chaps in suits who were being filmed having a spat, 'take 17' operators, drivers moving the car back and forth, people saying hush and others saying 'action'. I have no idea what all the rest were up to. It was just as well I didn't need to leave in the middle of it all but they did ask I didn't use the chainsaw. I saw them again today filming at the bottom of the flats in the background and with the title 'The Corrupted' and toughie mean looking chaps (who are good to their mother but scowl a lot) I suspect a gritty East End mob film coming.

cold cold cold and a completed new year resolution!

I have been busy in the studio prepping up some small bronzes for the Hampstead Art Fair in May. I made most of these ages ago and it was my New Year Resolution to finish them. However, as the studio has suffered from the 'Beast from the East', cold cold cold so two pairs of trousers have been essential. Until today when finally, I did not need to break ice on the water bowl for Polly the dog and it was warmer outside than it was in. I will still need two pairs of trousers  for the time being, but the warmer weather is on its way.......eventually

embracing the underdog

Put over 100 artists from around the country in an underground car park for a day. I took these photos early on, when we were setting up. All afternoon and into the evening we had loads of people wandering round to see the show. It was huge fun and there were a lot of dogs, as art, artists and admirers. A huge thanks to Q park for the space and to Susan Haire who made it happen







 




                                            and the clear up chums at 8pm out on the street! they were such a happy bunch.
