Gardens of London

St Pancras Gardens I

Gardens of London is a new project which I started during lockdown 2020 in London.

Throughout lockdown, gardens and parks in the city have given residents a welcome opportunity to be in touch with the natural world. For the past twelve months so much time has been spent confined in the artificial world we have constructed.

In the first part of this project I present several images of St Pancras Gardens, a small refuge of green space near my home. The project follows the usual process of my work. Firstly, I make a representational photographic image of a physical setting. Secondly, I reconstruct the image for transition to the artificial space, the digital space, a space which in itself is abstract.

The prints for sale are 40cm x 40cm and in a limited edition of 30 for each image in the series. In selling these prints I am taking part in Artist Support Pledge

The concept is a simple one. The artist posts images of their work that they are willing to sell for no more than £200 each. Every time they reach £1000 of sales they pledge to buy another artist’s work for £200. This creates a dynamic culture and market, where all can contribute, whatever their level of success. This is a culture dependent on the honesty and generosity of our artistic communities at every level.

Future Now

100 Contemporary Artists from the Aesthetica Art Prize

Future Now contains work from all 100 artists on the long-list for the Aesthetica Art Prize 2020. Images from my Decomposition series appear in this extensive record which is published to accompany the Aesthetica Art Prize and Future Now Symposium held at York St John University.

“The works inside this collection survey themes such as race and identity, technology, Dataism, surveillance culture, geopolitics and the climate crisis. We are living in uncertain times. There is so much happening on both personal and universal levels; we must take a moment to pause and try to make sense of all of this information.”

Future Now can be purchased at Aesthetica Magazine Shop
