I was chosen in May by David A. Bailey and Nicola Green to be apart of a project taking BME artist and curators to this year’s Venice Biennale. It was an incredibly fantastic experience which was set up by David A. Bailey and his oraganisation the ICF – International Curators Forum.
So many amazing Pavilions I had the opportunity to visit. One Pavilion I really took a great liking to was the Japanese Pavilion. The display by Chiharu Shiota called “The Key In The Hand” left my speechless.
A Post-Biennale Event was held after the Venice trip on 3rd June 2015 hosted by MP David Lammy at the House of Commons. All the participants such as the curators, art professionals, the Arts Council and British Council were to be hosted at the House of Commons.
A very big thank you to David A. Bailey, the ICF International Curators Forum, Nicola Green, David Lammy and all who helped make this trip possible. I was deeply inspired and grateful for that experience. It was magical!
Faber-Castell have invited me to attend an Award Ceremony/Exhibition in Stein, Germany. Whilst I’m there I will be visiting their HQ including a tour of the pencil production, their Historic Museum and the Faber- Castell Castle!
I’m truly thrilled and delighted to know that one of my favourite pencil brands have been following my art journey! I fly out to Germany on the 16th of this month. For more information on the event I will be attending click on the image below:
I have embarked on a new series portraits entitled “Interlude Series”. Interludes are normally associated with music – moments or intervals of short pieces inserted between parts or sections of larger production. Just like the interval of large performance, I’m exploring the break or breathing space of moments we may describe as ‘Reflection’, ‘Solitude’ or ‘Meditation’.
Below are progress shots of three Interlude portraits I’ve completed. Click on the images to view their Stages of Evolution.
