  • Lockdown Drawings

    10, November 2020

    I love drawing, for me putting a pencil to paper is the beginning of an adventure. The first lockdown was the beginning of a sometimes difficult but also a very creative time. Like a lot of people I started to organize and clear up my surroundings and while doing that I found a stack of stone litho’s in my...

  • The Real and The Virtual

    3, July 2020

    It’s a real pleasure to be able to send you my newsletter again! After our long enforced hibernation, which has been by times and in different ways hard for all of us, the gallery world is now, after a rich diet of virtual shows, also opening its doors with real McCoy. It feels like a breath of fresh air,...

  • Beyond Other Horizons

    21, February 2020

    Beyond Other Horizons Contemporary painting made in Britain and Romania reflecting themes of Paul Celan’s poem ‘Mapesbury road’ I was pleasantly surprised to be invited to take part in this exhibition, the surprise being that I am not much of a reader of poetry, but when I saw the mention of the uncanny as one of the themes which...

  • Towards the end of the year

    4, November 2019

    Sometimes everything comes together and when that happens a lot of energy gets released not just for the artist but for the viewer too. In my case this happened when the visionary director/curator of the Museum on the Seam, a socio/political museum in troubled Jerusalem, said he wanted to show the complete set of The Crying Game prints as...

  • The Crying Game at The Museum on the Seam in Jerusalem

    2, September 2019

    Like many of you I regularly sign online petitions in protest of different issues but as an artist I rarely get the chance to sound my voice in an environment which is so in tune with some of my more political work like The Crying Game. But when that happens it’s an absolute delight. I feel therefore incredibly honoured...

  • Summertime

    21, May 2019

    This year I had in mind to have a quiet year and like other ideas I’ve had or will have, things have a way of moving at their own, wayward, pace. Best we can do is dive in and go with the flow not because it’s too hard to resist things as they are but a curiosity of what...

  • Prints, prints, prints

    17, April 2019

    Recently I have been salivating over some brilliant print shows such as Rembrandt in the Rijksmuseum of Amsterdam to Edvard Munch in the British Museum and these have clearly given us all an appetite for the glorious London Original Print Fair where we not only can see the great versatility of the print medium but where, joy oh joy,...

  • ICONOCLASH#01

    25, March 2019

    Some years start with clarity and energy, others have a kind of undefined, questioning kind of mood which makes it seem as if there has not been any clear ending or beginning. Of course I wonder sometimes how much the collective happenings influence the individual or whether it is the other way round, that we look at what is...
