I created the window display in collaboration with Japanese students who are helping with a project at WEDG
WEDG (WEDG stands for World Education Development Group (Kent) ) are a charitable organisation offering membership to schools in Kent to access resources from around the world. This project ( find out more here ) is called 'Global Classroom Visitors' and has japanese students reading "The Hungry Caterpillar" in Japanese to children in schools across Kent.
I designed the fish or japanese koinobori carp kites and these were joined along with the students beautiful origami crane streamers and the fantastic origami caterpillar. You can see it in Canterbury here at at the bottom of Queningate Car Park.
A 4 painting in acrylics for a forth coming show at the Fish Slab to help to raise funds for the gallery.
Wow.............Just come back from the Matisse exhibition at the Tate Modern 'The Cut Outs'. What a fantastic exhibition. 14 superbly curated rooms which take you on a journey through the collage years and gives a look behind the working mind of Matisse in his later years. If you have not seen it .......it really is worth taking a trip to the Tate Modern for this. The exhibition is enhanced supremely with cinematography of Matisse at work. It is truly mesmerizing. My favorite room was the blue nude room. But whole exhibition is an inspiration even now.

Underexposed held at the University of Kent, Canterbury, will survey the ways in which prominent female artists have used the medium of print over the last two centuries (and beyond). It will feature painters and sculptors, and highlight how print relates to their primary focus. It will also look at those who are or have been printmakers first and foremost, and why they have chosen to work in that particular artistic medium. At the same time, the exhibition will examine the different types of prints, as well as the different subject matter chosen by the various female artists represented.
