Untitled (Once Upon a Time), pen, ink and pencil on paper, 615mm H x 910mm W

The above work is part of an upcoming group exhibition, opening on May 10, and continuing until June 27th 2013. The exhibition is called A Word of Art, at Uxbridge Arts, located in Howick.

Text is normally not a common feature of my work, as I prefer to explore ideas around narrative in a more pictorial way; but the concept behind the work engaged with the concept of the exhibition.

Its always quite exciting being part of a group exhibition, as it explores the relationships between the work that has been sitting in the studio and the works of others and how these relate, within the context of a gallery exhibition. Artmaking can be quite a lonely process, as company can be distracting, but it also means relative isolation in order for work to be created. At the same time, it is also interesting to see how other artists interpret an exhibition brief or theme and how these seemingly disparate ideas and works relate and correspond to each other.

Below is the flyer for the exhibition
