OBSERVATIONS OF A CURIOUS NATURE.

A Major solo exhibition in November 2018 at the Fosse Gallery, Stow on the Wold and a very special exhibition of Mystical Animals at the Wing Gallery in the Summer.

All new work this year will be published on this site just before the exhibitions with the occasional piece included throughout the year.

With a consuming passion for British Wildlife combined with quirky sense of humour and satire, the main subject of the painting is transformed from a natural pose into a completely obscure and unusual setting.

With a natural leaning towards the gothic genre which includes Victorian engines, optical instruments and even renaissance inventions to add to the mix.

The paintings all tell a story, a very old fashioned way of painting, so each work can have several connotations, from Game birds alighting on pies to Hares transfixed by mirrors and foxes alluring chickens, all in a humorous framework. Perhaps stemming from a childhood mixture of Brer Rabbit and Edgar Allen Poe.

The great diversity of British Wildlife and the imagination of connecting birds and animals with unrelated objects opens up endless possibilities for paintings.

The whole is brought together with the naming of the work……it’s all in the title.
