Japonism on You Tube

A big thank you to Kerry Cross also, for his assistance in editing a short YouTube video about 'JAPONISM'. If you haven't been in to see the exhibition as yet, here's an interview in my art studio interspersed with images of the paintings on display at Montsalvat.

My the year has certainly flown! It's really hard to believe that Spring is just around the corner.... and also that 'JAPONISM' is exhibiting at Montsalvat for just another week or so!
If you haven't been down as yet, here's a little reminder that the last opportunity will be Sunday 24th August. The gallery is open daily from 9am until 5pm.

Exhibition Opening

I'd dearly love to thank all of you for your wonderful response, support, and feed back regarding 'JAPONISM' which has been showing since June 19.

The opening evening was simply delightful and despite the chill of a mid winter night, so many made it to the opening to help celebrate this new body of paintings. A heartfelt thank you to Jeannette Davison, the Arts Manager at Montsalvat, and Amanda Gibson, Manager of the 'Tree Project' for your incredible opening speeches.

I'll be down at Montsalvat on Saturday 24th August between 1-3pm for the final session in the 'Meet the Artist' series accompanying JAPONISM.  Love to see you there!

"The paintings are material objects that depict an image which arose from the essence and which, at their highest function, will offer the viewer a window to their own invisible essence within."
