Keep your eyes peeled for more information.

During the summer of 2008 I exhibited work at an arts festival in Tübingen,GermanyThe festival was entitled '4elements' and included an exhibition, poetry, music/dance, and even an aquatic art performance. Representatives from four countries - England, Germany, France and Italy participated. My daughter, Leony was involved in the making of a giant latex whale in the dance recital and a figure hugging whale costume used during the water sequence. Each of my paintings exhibited depicted one of the four elements. They were 'Dark Fire, Dark Air, Dark Water, Dark Earth, with Dark Elements being the key painting. I also exhibited a sculpture and photo montages. The project received excellent revues. A high quality catalogue was published showing the work of the artists, photographers, dancers and musicians involved.. As a follow-up I produced my own book containing related work together with paintings, sculptures and photographs linked to the project. If you would like to view a virtual copy of the book please contact me at the above email address and I will post you the link..
