Every year I pick up my paint brushes, pencils and sit down before all the festivities start, to make my Limited Edition Christmas cards, and this year is no different. Based on a homage to a great artist, thinker or creative that I have found to be inspirational for that year, 2015's cards are based on the wonders that are Joseph Cornell.
Creating an edition of 75 cards, I created 3 designs entitled, Constellation Ballerina, Reindeer Leap and Princess Christmas, all cards have now been sent and received, I wonder which one you received!
I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a magical Christmas. I hope that it is filled with much happiness and it has been an absolute pleasure working with all and I thoroughly look forward to what 2016 brings. Let's raise a glass to 2015 and await the excitement of 2016!
I am delighted to currently be exhibiting in ROSE GALLERY's second installation, Her First Meteorite, Volume II, a selection of process based photographs that features the work of seven artists. The exhibition will be on view from 12 December 2015 through 6 February 2016.
By stepping outside traditional processes to rediscover the photographic medium, Melinda Gibson, Kenneth Graves, Yoko Kanayama, and Summer Mann, utilize secondary processes and photographic collage in order to blur the boundaries of selfidentity and complicate the understanding of contemporary cultures. By focusing on the use of details and multiple layers within the photographic process, Gibson, Graves, Kanayama and Mann bring to light the socio-cultural narratives within the historical and contemporary urban landscape.
Here are some installation shots of this wonderful show. More information can be found on the gallery website here:

I am absolutely delighted to be exhibiting in the second volume of the much inspired show at ROSEGALLERY, Her First Meteorite, Volume 2, which opens on Saturday 12th December.
Presenting the second installment of Her First Meteorite, a selection of process based photographs that features the work of seven artists: Dirk Braeckman, James Gallagher, Melinda Gibson & Thomas Sauvin, Ken Graves, Yoko Kanayama, Summer Mann and Sebastian Riemer. The exhibition will be on view from 12 December 2015 through 6 February 2016.
From experimenting with light sensitivities of unconventional photographic papers, to repurposing salvaged negatives, the use of secondary processes within Her First Meteorite, Volume II, challenges the boundaries of the medium of photography. By allowing the works to enter the world of the surreal, this exhibition invites the viewer to question the identity of the visuals presented.
