Good day going round the art fair in Islington with artist Simon Burton , checking out his painting at John Martin Gallery looking strong. Also Matthew Burrows at Vigo Gallery next to Alan Reynolds stand out. Exquisite Pipers, Sutherlands and Maurice Cockrill with a great Bomberg portrait at the British Modern section. It always seems the smaller paintings/drawings tucked away that stand out for me at these fairs.

‘The Winter Garden’ http://www.jamesfreemangallery.com.
This a group show designed to bring the year to a close by combining artists we have worked with over the past year together with artists showing with the gallery for the first time. The result is something dynamic, a Janus-like exhibition that looks to both the past and the future as the New Year rises on the horizon.
Last few days to catch The Baron Gilvan’s recent paintings and drawings at James Freeman Gallery in Islington. Please pop in if you can…
Back from an amazing residency at Scompiglio, Italy working on ‘Sisters of Hera’, I am delighted to be showing paintings and drawings at James Freeman Gallery, London 24th Oct-22 Nov. I will also be in residence in the basement for the opening Thursday 23rd October 6.30-8.30pm. (nearest: Angel tube)
Im delighted to be part of an amazing event which is the culmination of a summer residency utilising the creative talents of around ten artists, theatre makers, dancers and filmmakers. It’s called ‘Sisters of Hera’ 20-21st Sept and will be at Tenuta Dello Scompiglio, Vorno near Lucca, Italy.
Im looking forward to straightforwardness with a poetic zeal and twist of painterly brilliance from Gary Goodman’s paintings at Zimmer Stewart in early february. Gary will be teaching with me at West Dean College almost immediately after the show goes up from the 7th-10th feb.
