I’m very excited to be heading back to Eygalières in Provence France this month. After having finished a residency that I won with NG Art Creative Residency Program last November championed by the wonderful Nicky Ginsberg. I’m finally making the pilgrimage back to where it all started for the opening and vernissage of ‘Connexions Silencieuses’ an International Group Exhibition of artists from around the globe. I’m very proud to be showing amongst an amazing cohort of International talent including other wonderful fellow Australian artists and will be giving an artist talk as part of their public programs on the 5th of May 4-5pm at the 800 year old Elise Saint Laurent where the exhibition will be staged. If you are in France or heading to Provence you are very welcome to attend the opening and talks. Bisous!
Here's something I've never done before! I got asked to feature in this years new season Australia's Portrait Artist Of The Year promo for Foxtel Arts. I'll be attempting a portrait of the wonderful Margaret Pomeranz, Australian film critic, writer, producer and television personality. It's going to be lights, camera, action! alongside two other wonderful Australia painters, Tony Costa and Adrian Lockhart. What a wonderful opportunity to be supported by the arts, should be heaps of fun! Thank you Foxtel Arts!
Me and my beautiful dear friend and artistic mentor, Matthew Perceval, spending time together at my show. It’s a lovely and rare thing when artists of different generations can bond together like we do. Love you dearly, Matty.
