December 5th - 'Return to Presipe'
The last major edition of 2016 'Return to Presipe' is now available in the landscape gallery. One of Pembrokeshire's Top 10 'Secret Beaches', Presipe has a steep descept of around 100 steps to the most exquisite beach of rockpools and striking rock formations.
November 20th - Winter Exhibitions
The summer and autumn have flown by in a flury of activity in the studio and I now find myself in full Winter/Christmas exhibition mode. My work over the last few months has increased in size and changed quite markedly in style ... and that purple'ish-red colour has re-appeared entirely without my realising in the most recent edition 'Return to Presipe' which will be added to the Landscape gallery over the coming weekend.
June 27th - Summer exhibitions
Hot on the heels of the Big Steam Print, I'm busy printing and framing new work for several summer exhibitions. A new 8 colour reduction, 'The silence of fallen trees, Rhaeadr Arthog' (detail below) is now available in the landscape gallery.
May 4th - Big Steam Print
On the 22nd of May, I'll be taking part in the Big Steam Print, a project organised by Ditchling Museum of Art and Craft. I'll be printing my largest ever linocut, a giant 1m x 1.2m on The Level, on Brighton Promenade.
March 25th - Framing, delivering and planning
A hectic month which saw me printing, framing, delivering framed work to The Contemporary Six Gallery in Manchester and planning for next couple of months which include my partaking in the Big Steam Print in Brighton on May 22nd ... more of this before the day.
February 12th - Return visit
The second edition of the year finds me back at one of my favourite locations, Rhaeadr Ogwen. This winter's wind and rain made it particularly spectacular. The results of a very chilly visit can be seen here.
January 10th - Force I
I've started the new year with a multi-block edition, the first of a series of six which will appear at two-monthly intervals throughout 2016. You can find out more about the first of the 'Force' series here.
A month of deadlines with Christmas exhibitions at most of the galleries who show my work. Two new editions will be heading to Tegfryn Gallery in Menai Bridge at the end of the week ... my final committment for the year delivered. I've promised myself some time off from actual printing in December, time to visit new and old locations, some sketching, testing new inks and planning for the coming year.
It's been a busy couple of months with an exciting invitation to join a new gallery, The Contemporary Six in Manchester, work going to the Koywood Gallery in Cardiff with the RCA, and five new editions completed, including three new monochrome works produced for Tegfryn Gallery's next exhibtion 'The sea, the sea'. All three are now available in Gallery 1.
