“This is Me”- My first solo exhibition at the Norman Cross Gallery has been in the planning for some time, but it’s always amazing how the time suddenly sneaks up on you. This exhibition of paintings and drawings focuses on portraits of some of the Iconic legends in the world of Politics, Sport, Music and Film.
There’s a nice mixture here, a few old pieces which shows part of the journey my work has taken and new works of Angelina Jolie, Will.I.Am, Norma Jean (Marilyn Munro), Robin Williams and the Great Rock Legend Jimmy Hendrix to name but a few.
Still playing with the concept ‘Absence of Presence’, where we are able so see something that‘s no longer there, or visualise what used to be. Obscuring the image creates a sense of excitment in the work and encourages engagement with the viewer.
The title ‘This Is Me’, lends itself to where I am right now with my work. As a style, it’s been a work in progress for a number of years and i’m happy with how it’s developed to this point. As artists, to develop and grow we sometimes move in different directions, at times we even revisit our old styles.
Visit my exhibition and share in a part of my creative world.
