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 part of their Democracy Now exhibition.
My dealer, Julian Page and I flew out for the opening of this thought provoking show, I was so pleased when a visitor told me that my images were hard to look at but even harder to look away from, a greater compliment I cannot imagine.
On a quieter note I have been invited by Coombe Gallery in Devon to take part in their Contemporary Print exhibition, this will be my first showing with them.
And on the 12th of November, the British Museum will display my large etching, Reading between the Lines 1, in their Friends of Prints and Drawings evening amongst their recent acquisitions.
Meanwhile autumn is encroaching us on twilighty feet and the season of introspection is nigh, more than ever do we now need images around us so that we can be enriched and inspired.
