9 Nov – 21 Dec 2019
Gracefield Arts Centre, Dumfries
I would be delighted if you could join me at the opening on
Sat 9 Nov between 2 and 5 pm
The exhibition continues till Sat 21 Dec
In five rooms, my colourful still life, landscape and mixed media works form the main body of this show. They are contrasted with a large installation piece called the ‘Circle of LIfe’ and emotionally charged drawings made in response to the horrors of war. These pivotal early expressionist works changed my direction in painting. After the early 1990’s I decided I did not want to dwell on these themes. The title of the exhibition and the of focus my subsequent work is all about…..in my way…..’Choosing beauty’.
