There was a fantastic vibe at the Private View for my 'Conscious while the world sleeps' exhibition at The Tabernacle in Notting Hill, London last night. I hope you get to check it out before it closes on Saturday evening.
I'm grateful to Lady Amelia Ward for organising this great opening event, to Andy Wright for the invite and poster designs, Simon Swallow for helping to install the display, Pete Robinson for looking after the media side of things... and of course my partner Char who is currently documenting my work with her fantastic 1959 Hasselblad medium-format camera.
It was great to see so many people engaging with my art, and I hope I got to speak to most of you at some point. Among those who came along last night were Saatchi's Lee Sharrock, who curated the Contemporary Vanitas exhibition that I took part in last month, Prince Constantin Windisch-Graetz, Lady Cressida Ward, artists Nancy Fouts, Hannah Matthews & Ian Sherman, weaver and good friend Gary Ploompf, Angela McDonald, Sunday Times Editor Sarah Dixon, stylist Jonni Fitzgerald, and Kay and Chris Love from the band Lullaby.
There are twenty pieces of original taxidermy assemblage art for sale at the exhibition at special show prices.
'Conscious while the world sleeps' runs from July 13th - 16th 2016, 12pm - 9pm, at The Tabernacle, 35 Powis Square, off Portobello Road, London W11 2AY - directions here.
