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.
Great start to the New year 2014 with a lovely feature by Mim King of Total Theatre magazine on both Grist to The Mill productions launched in October at Suspense festival, London.
Jean Dubuffet ‘Transistions’ at Pallant House last day..I managed to sneak in with family Gilvan and get the last viewing of Dubuffet’s paintings , graphics and video at Chichester’s Pallant House yesterday. The video had him playing home-made musical instruments whilst reciting his non-sensical poetry ‘ Le fleur de barbe’ ( Beard flowers)..I saw Dubuffet’s work 25 years ago at the Pompidou and even though he’s gone in and out of focus for me over the years, to see a small selection of his work it was refreshing to see how contemporary his paintings come across.
Have just returned from Gillian Ayres Private view at the Jerwood Gallery. Fabulous paintings full of eye-tingling intensity. Gillian was there and also great to see painters Ansel Krut, Matthew Burrows and Simon Burton.
