In October 2018 I am part of a Degrees of Freedom Exhibition from 6-14th October at St Augustine’s Tower in the heart of Hackney – right by the pedestrianised part of Mare Street. The Exhibition is titled: Friends of interpretable spaces
“Now Project ” launches at the Ply Gallery, Hornsey Town Hall Arts Centre.
Residency at the Hornsey Town Hall Arts Centre for 4 artists to work on the Now Project
My life in the Arts began with the publication of the book Slump City when I was 27. Soon I joined the film and TV group Newsreel Collective, where I worked on the award-winning drama “True Romance Etc.”
Twenty years of collaborative TV and Film work followed which included many individual documentaries and the Arts Council funded experimental “Fathers and Sons” project. I also directed and produced for Channel 4’s experimental 11th hour slot. I then went on to work as an Executive Producer in BBC TV.
I began painting during this time and when I left the BBC I studied Fine Art at UEL. Today my art practice takes up most of my working life. I combine painting ( as member of Espacio Gallery and Crouch End Open Studios) with Photography, Project and Installation type work. I was part of a group of four artists who undertook a two year collaborative project – the Now Project. The work was shown at the Ply Gallery, London N8 in September 2016. It was a great experience. It was appreciated by many who came and we all felt it was a significant success. One of the reasons why it worked so well was that it was two years in the making.
