Well as 2015 comes to an end I will be putting my feet up after a hectic and exciting December. My exhibition "Remembered Landscapes" at Depot Gallery ended up being nearly a sellout with 25 paintings in total sold, and many commissions generated as well. I always look forward to exhibiting at Depot...in my opinion a world class gallery with exceptional lighting and space...I can't wait to return next year! The flurry of sales went way beyond my expectations, not to mention the opportunity to meet some of the wonderful people who have been following me on Facebook and Instagram. I truly believe there has never been a better time to be an artist with the wealth of communication tools available today...amazing opportunities for artists to meet not only other artists but interact directly with collectors as well.
So what does 2016 hold? Well I am extremely lucky to have been invited to exhibit at the Asia Contemporary Art Show in Hong Kong in September, and I am also looking for an exhibition opportunity in Melbourne as well as my regular Sydney show. Sounds like I might not be putting up my feet after all!
I would just like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a joyful and safe Christmas, and to sincerely thank you for reading my brief updates throughout the year. A happy and creative 2016 to you all!
Here is a snapshot of how the show progressed...
Well it's finally here...my only solo show in Australia for this year! "Remembered Landscapes" starts on December 15th at Depot Gallery. Showcasing a year's work, this show will feature some local landscapes, landscape memories from my childhood and also some of my Paris works.
The title "Remembered Landscapes" refers to my technique of intuitive painting...often working from memory after a long walk along the coastline, but also actual childhood memories of trips into the country as a child to visit my grandmother at Bathurst.
Here is the official invitation and also some of the paintings that will be on show. Everyone is welcome...it would be great to see you there!
