After returning from my second exhibition at the New Zealand Embassy in London, I have been beavering away in my studio.
I decided to return to the human form as subject matter and nearly the whole of 2007 was spent exploring ideas based on my playing drums in my band patterns of light, shapes of instruments, the interaction of the players and their movement all interested me. We played a lot at jazz festivals, clubs and local vineyards, so there was plenty of visual stimulation.
More recently I have continued with the autobiographical theme by working on ideas from selected theatre set designs I have done over the years.
I will be exhibiting some of this work in my own gallery as well as overseas this year. I will keep you posted.
Exhibition in Hastings Opera House
November 24 - December 5
