Open Eye Gallery, Edinburgh
I am exhibiting 4 new paintings in the 'Objects of Desire' exhibition along with John Bellany, George Donald, Henry Fraser, Roberto Gonzalez Fernandez, Benjamin Jones, Jack Knox, Barry McGlashan, Geoffrey Roper, Ann Ross and Margaret Smyth. The invited artists have been asked to produce 4 works on any theme or size, but, all 4 pieces have to be the same size. I have plumped for 4 wee canvasses, which will be around 38cm square once framed.
'Fish Box', Acrylic on Canvas
what's nice about this exhibition for me is the fact that I can now broaden my subject matter to include other things again. There is a slight feeling of being hemmed in when you limit yourself, as I did, for my Morocco show. Not that I didn't enjoy working on the exhibition, only its nice to be able to hop from one idea to another without worrying if the end result fits in.
'Arabian nights', Acrylic on Canvas
'Missing Pieces', Acrylic on canvas
