Running from the 2nd of March to 11th April, I have a solo exhibition at the Ripley Art Centre, Bromley. The word Reflection in the title is used loosely and doesn't warrant too much analysing. Being perhaps, in a literal sense the return by a body or surface, of light, heat, or sound, or in another instance, this closer to my interpretation, a thought or consideration, but I hope the paintings will do all the explaining. Subjects for the work vary from landscape, to city, rivers, sea and a number of airships - a theme I began in the mid 1980s and to which I have returned over the years. In 1986, gathering source material for my degree thesis I had the rare privilege of complete access to Barnes Wallis' notes. Sitting at a table in the Science Museum Library I pored over piles of paper, ideas from the mind of this most creative man, someone I considered an artist of technology. His calculations and references, some on napkins and envelopes suggesting a vivid imagination and thorough attention to detail. It was his airships which captivated me the most, huge, slow, artificially light, big gentle beasts, like whales floating about looking down on the world. A short video of the show can be seen by clicking here.
