South East Open Studio

The Vine Cricket Ground, Sevenoaks, one of the oldest in the country.

As part of South East Open Studios, my gallery will be open from 2-5 pm on 15 and 16 June.

The exhibition will focus on paintings produced for my book “Buildings of New York” and also feature some new images of Sevenoaks.

The top image is of The Vine: the first recorded game of cricket took place here in 1734.

The southern portion of the High Street has the oldest buildings, enhanced by the enticing curve of the street.

Famous because Jane Austen stayed here with her great uncle – and considered the finest house on the High Street in Sevenoaks

Brick Lane for Article 25

After Holborn Circus in London’s West End last year, this year Article 25 asked me to paint Brick Lane: my contribution to their 10×10 “drawing the city” fund-raising event, this time in the East End.

What a great subject!  Full of colour, smells and music, the place buzzes with life on a Sunday afternoon.  The spicy rich complexity of the food is echoed by the strong red weathered brickwork.

As well as acrylic paint and black ink I have incorporated collage into the image: the cover and some pages from Monica Ali’s book “Brick Lane”; some menus and tickets from the area; some wooden cutlery from the market; a palette knife broken in making the picture and a blade – representing the sharp edginess of the place.

For details of the exhibition and auction in November 2013
