Ferens Gallery exhibition

Flow

Flow has been selected to the Open Exhibition at the Ferens Art Gallery at Hull and will be shown from Saturday 15 February to Sunday 26 April 2020.

Technique similar to Dance On that was exhibited in Edinburgh but with watercolour instead of block printing colour as the starting point.

Operan III

The first Operan is about 120×100 cm and as I was enjoing working on this large scale I did a couple more and found another photograph from the Stockholm archipelago that inspired me. Looking at this image it is almost too colourful – but I have not made any ‘improvements’ – it is the way light is falling on the microscopic pigment particles and the way they are reflecting the light that make it so vibrant. Photographing this using my phone was a challenge – either the light was bouncing off the surface or, as here, the colours look exaggerated and fake.
