My exhibition of Portraits at the Norman Rea Gallery, York University on 29th April 2013 and runs for two weeks.

Poster for exhibition of Portraits in York - April / May 2013

"The exhibition draws together a group of large-scale portraits depicting members of the artist's family. The oil paintings, which are tributes to those closest to me, are scaled up from digital photographs taken by the artist."

The Norman Rea Gallery is a university campus art space that promotes the work of both students and professional artists, practicing in a huge range of media. The gallery is run entirely by students for the enjoyment of the whole of campus and the wider university community. The gallery hosts three exhibitions a term with lectures, seminars and events.



My work has also been selected by Robert Priseman to be part of an exciting project called 'Contemporary British Painting'. This group includes some great painters including Robert Priseman, Simon Carter and Nick Middleton. There will be 24 painters and each one will have a solo show at St. Marylebone Parish Church in London.

The group has a website - Contemporary British Painting - here is the page listing the artists in the group.

"Where we have diversity in styles, handling and approach, we are all united in our love of painting and its property to create beauty and metaphor and to act as a philosophical meditation on the nature of the human condition." Robert Priseman
