Friendly Spider



September 17 - 26 Rochford Art Trail 2015

“Friendly Spider”

Given a venue in the window of a busy garage showroom…no light inside, no hanging facilities, sliding window in constant use, sale cars parked in front…what to do…giant spider window vinyl with reflective paint to catch the sun, visible from the street and friendly face so as not to frighten passing toddlers from nearby day nursery…

Rochford Art Trail or Rochford Life


September 18 - 27  Rochford Art Trail 2014

"Homage to Henri". The big Tate Modern exhibition of the late works of one of my heroes has inspired me to attempt a window vinyl based on Matisse's La Gerbe paper cut out.  Temporary window installation at venue 17, Grace's Attic ( .  Plus cut outs workshop for 3 year olds at Rochford Day Nursery.  Also Art Trail Guided Walks (

October 27 - November 3 Rochford Art Trail

Following on from Hadleigh, I have installed "Velo 2" a second version of the multi-image and DVD interpretation of the Olympic MTB events.  In addition, having  revived the format, I have rehung my original multi-image piece from 2008.
"Video creates an illusion of movement using 25 frames per second. It's fascinating to play with this concept. Here are two examples; one, from 2008, is 9 continuous seconds of frantic rush hour in the City (9 columns of 25 frames), the other fleeting moments of effort and speed from the Hadleigh Farm Olympic Mountain Biking at London 2012."

Venue 24 Giles Wilson Solicitors. Also showing six portraits in charcoal and Conté Crayon.
