So much to think about whilst I am stuck in perpetual house arrest at the behest of her majesty's government. Work is now stuck across Britain and New York and my inbox is filled with messages from various museums and galleries informing me of the latest development in what seems a Herculean task to keep the arts sector alive and well. The heroic technicians, just two (!) at the Royal West of England Academy Annual Open Exhibition have hung the show now and we await the private view, train tickets for the last one cancelled, as a result of Boris and co's decisions, and new tickets soon to be bought (with trepidation).
The ING Discerning Eye Exhibition last night, the organisers had wisely decided up with the Government's shenanigans they would not put and therefore opted to keep the show online only. I had four pieces selected and I was curious to see which selectors had selected them. I was delighted to see that a piece had been chosen by four different people as that is a sign that my work interests a broad spectrum. The selectors that chose my work were: Dale Lewis, David Remfry RA, Mercyn Metcalf and Beverley Knight. I am grateful to them.
I have work in New York and that show, The Seventh View, has just closed but it's on Artsy until the end of the year for purchases (notice the theme? Real shows closed, online shows galore).
