Coming up:

The Lost Paintings of Herzog Dellafiore

A new project with Daniel Devlin - return to see developments!

Solo show at Studio 1.1, Shoreditch, London. July 2019

Venice Biennale: in September, I will be part of the British Council team, stewarding the Cathy Wilkes exhibition in the British Pavilion, It is a British Council Fellowship: half of the time is spent in the Pavilion and the other half pursuing my own research. At the moment I am not sure, but I think it will consist of some kind of ethnographic study, linked to the GD Tiepolo work in the Ca'Rezzonico. 

Wash 2 in Ireland: My friend Francesca Ibbotson Flowers and I will be curating a second version ofthe exhibtion we put on at Resort in Margate. Called, Wash 2, it will consist of Irish and British watercolour painters, and will be at Angela Flowers' house in Duneen. 


March 2019 at Espacio Gallery, Shoreditch - a group show with Michael Johnson, Suzanne Du Toit and Frank Creber, among others, about the urban environment.



In Summer 2018 I applied for a scholarship to study my PhD, "Did You Just Make That Up?", an auto-ethnographic examination of my studio practice, full-time, and I got it, so now I am a full-time student for the next three years, at Canterbury Christ Church University. My supervisor is Tim Long. This gives me the chance to think through what I have been doing for the past thirty years. 


Susak Expo 2018 
I was invited to take part in Susak Expo - Susak Free State and produced the book Susak/Susak (available by request), for which I was sponsored by the Centre for Practice Based Research in Art at CCCU.

Louise Bourgeois And Me And Other Stories
Solo show at Studio 1.1

I am about as proud of this as I have ever been of a show.


Two Painters And A Potter

Me, my chum Arthur Neal and a ceramicist called William Plumptre in a show at Linden Hall Studio in Deal.

It's from 3rd September to 2nd October 2016, and it looks fantastic, the gallery is probably the best looking place I have ever shown in. It's also lovely to show with my old friend.

Autocatalytic Future Games

was the title of a show I was in, organised by playpaint, in noformat gallery, Woolwich, in June 2015. I missed the Private View and the packingup party, because we were on holiday in Majorca. Majorca was nice, but they would have been  good parties.
