2016-17 Paintings
Invasions and Excavations – coming soon

Invasions and Excavations. 21 April -6 May 2017. Open Eye Gallery

Invasions and Excavations’ is my first solo exhibition in central Edinburgh since 1994 and I could not be more thrilled to be showing at the Open Eye Gallery. The show comprises of a series of compact oil paintings depicting my visual meanderings with civic structures, institutional barriers and personal loss  – with the occasional reference to my childhood obsessions of sci-fi and adventure comics. The paintings show huddles of characters who are contained, locked in or shut out; some willing victims, others fighting injustices. All have been derived from a three or four year period of intensive drawing – a combination of direct observation, visual daydreaming and pictorial mischief making.

Full portfolio of images will appear here when the show opens 20 April – 6 May 2017

Please contact the Open Eye Gallery to enquire about the works which will showing.
