I enjoy showing my work in exhibitions. Visitors often say that seeing the photographs in “real life” is even better than viewing them on a computer screen. They are printed on archival quality, matt cotton rag which gives a depth and richness of colour that cannot really be appreciated on a monitor.
2018 is a busy year for my exhibitions!
I’m delighted to be back at The Aldeburgh Gallery with my Still Lifes. Entitled “Still Life and the Art of Slow Photography” it again features a mixture of traditional and modern takes on the genre of Still Life. Most of my photographs take many hours to compose and take but one of the exhibits took over two years to complete!
You will find a number of the exhibits in the Fine Art Photography and the Flower Still Life sections of this web site. Don’t forget to also look at the image in the Slow Photography page which is an homage to the 17th century art of flower painting.
I am exhibiting for the first time at Art Fair East in Norwich from 30 November to 2 December 2018 in the lovely St Andrews Hall. This is a gathering of artists and galleries from the East Anglian Region and beyond. I am really looking forward to showing my work to a wider audience and amongst other artists.
YUM! A Feast for the Eyes
I’m delighted to be returning to the Quay Gallery at Snape Maltings for the week of 27 September to 3rd October which includes the weekend of the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival as a Fringe Event. The exhibition “Yum! A Feast for the Eyes” was hugely popular last year and I’m looking forward to showing you some new work as well as favourites that visitors always enjoy. The Quay Gallery is situated in a beautiful position on the edge of the River Alde at the entrance to the Snape Maltings complex. My exhibition is free but those wanting to visit during the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival will have to buy an entry ticket to that event to gain entrance to my show. On all other days you can come and see my work completely for free!
CONTRAST: Landscapes and Still Life
A joint exhibition with Hugh de Las Casas – our first in many years! His beautiful local Landscape photographs will be a stunning contrast to my Still Lifes. It’s a lovely gallery in the centre of Aldeburgh, below the Peter Piers Gallery and on the way through to the beach. We will be there from 2-8 August 2018.
I’m thrilled to have been invited to show my work in the tasting room at the lovely Giffords Hall Vineyard. So visitors can sample delicious wines while looking at my photographs of food and flowers. It’s a lovely venue and my photographs are looking very much at home there. My Still Lifes will be showing in the tasting room from 1 July to 5 August 2018.
For the first time I’m exhibiting at The Quay Gallery during the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival as a Fringe Event. The exhibition, “Yum! A Feast for the Eyes” is open 22-28 September which includes the Festival on 23-24 September. The gallery is in an ideal position on the edge of the Snape Maltings complex, overlooking the River Alde. I am so looking forward to being part of it.
The exhibition will include new works as well as some old favourites. I look forward to meeting you there!
In early 2017 I was excited to be asked by David Keleel to create an exhibition my flower photographs at the lovely Darsham Nurseries and Café.
Mixing some existing photographs with newly created works, they look very much at home in the shop and café. As always, I use natural light to enhance the beauty of the blooms and photograph them in two very distinct styles. One is firmly rooted in the Dutch masters, while the other offers a simpler, more modern close up view of the flowers.
Running from 6 July to 1 August it is a new excursion for me and I’m thrilled with the result!
In 2016 I was delighted to be back at The Aldeburgh Gallery with my exhibition of Still Lifes. Entitled “Still Life and the Art of Slow Photography” it featured a mixture of traditional and modern takes on the genre of Still Life. Most of my photographs take many hours to compose and take but one of the exhibits took over 15 months to complete!
Nature’s colours and textures are revealed as the focal point of my images. Drawing influences from the Dutch masters, re-interpretations and re-inventions of this style of work were evident. At the opposite end of the scale I showed, for the first time, a range of abstract images too. Running from 19 to 25 May 2016 it was a hugely successful show with many photographs travelling the world.
You will find a number of the exhibits in the Fine Art Photography section of this web site. Don’t forget to also look at the image in the Slow Photography page which is an homage to the 17th century art of flower painting.
