Finally after having worked on this woodcut for several months I am happy to say Demolition 3 is now ready to be editioned, Here is the proof and I will be creating an edition of 30 of this four colour woodcut print. They will be available to buy soon and are sized at 67cm high by 64cm wide, I hope you like it. Do get in touch if you would like one.
My miniature woodcut, Demolition 2 has been accepted into the National Original Print show at the Bankside Gallery, (next to the Tate Modern) The show is organised by the Royal society for Painter-Printmakers and highlights a vast array of contemporary printmaking artists across the country, Should be a great show and it opens on the 16th September 2014. Find out more on their website.
I’m Extremely happy to blog post this time as yesterday evening I received a telephone call from the Royal Birmingham Society of the Arts of which I have two diptychs on display for the print biennial.
The Phone call was from the curator of the exhibition and he cut straight to the point that Nancy Campbell (Editor of Printmaking today) has chosen My two piece Royal Mail:V2 to be awarded top prize for the Print Biennial. Naturally I’m extremely honoured and delighted about this and when asked if I would be attending the award ceremony I was already booking the B&B for a little holiday in Birmingham.
If you are in Birmingham do pop down to see the print Biennial and also from the RBSA there is a sculpture trail going on.

I am very happy to update that my popular woodcut Royal Mail: V1 has been excepted into the Royal Academy Summer Show. This is a first for me and after going to the RA for VarnishingDay I can say it is a truly inspiring show, with amazing paintings including one from Anselm Keifer and prints from Dine, Baumgartner, Yuasa, Stibbon, Ackroyd and many more in the same room as mine! Very Pleased.
Finally I’ve got round to posting some of the lovely photo’s of my new woodcut prints onto the blog, these where created this year and will be exhibited at Spike Print Open and New Mills Arts weekend in May.More postings to come in regards to more exhibitions coming up.
