So it seems quite apt that my last London exhibition before I leave the Capital next month (and re-locate my practice to a much larger studio space up in Shropshire) should be at this month's Friday Late, Baroque to the Future - the theme being Europe, Baroque and the Future. Not that this will be my last London exhibition; just the last one before I move studio.
Taking place this Friday, Baroque to the Future will be on from 6:30-10:00pm, and my sculptures will be installed at the bottom of the National Art Library staircase, inside the museum's Sculpture Gallery. Orifice Tower and Sleeping Beauty Box will be among some of the pieces that I will be showing, as well as salvaged sections (now in a temporary display structure) from my cabinet of curiosities sculpture, The City, which was unfortunately destroyed back in 2011, when it was lent to a Trove exhibition in Birmingham. But once I relocate to the new studio I am finally going to have the time to work on a new, and hopefully bigger, version.
