Breaking the Cycle is being shown in London at Art Moorhouse, 120 London Wall, from 21st November – 6th January. This recent work was influenced by India and the exhibition was inspired by a fascinating trip to the ancient and holy city of Varanasi.
This exhibition is open by appointment, including weekends, so please do contact Art Moorhouse directly (Tel: 0750-2211-914) if you would like to see it.
You may also spot that I have a new website. One great feature of this is the chance to click on a picture, to see its dimensions and select ‘View on a Wall.’ This allows you to gain a far better idea of the size of a piece of work as we can see in this sample below:
