in Malta

IMG_20191107_121728I’m in Malta to launch the new book ‘Quinn in Malta’.

The book is edited and introduced by the late Peter Apap Bologna. He had been planning the book, its launch and the accompanying show for a year or more. Without Peter’s energy, enthusiasm and good humour the book would not have been completed. He encouraged  me to paint new watercolours to show at the launch. On receipt of each new batch he was, as ever, hugely enthusiastic. He took especial delight in discovering my sketchbooks and preparatory drawings: these feature in the book and a good number have found their way to frames and are in the accompanying exhibition.

Peter passed away only two weeks ago. We miss him greatly. You can read an appreciation of him here: Peter Apap Bologna (1941-2019).

The launch takes place at St. Patrick’s School, don Bosco Street, Sliema on Saturday 9th November in the morning 11-1. All welcome.

Jesmond Dene Real Tennis Club 125th Anniversary Lithographs

A suite of four lithographs produced in collaboration with Hole Editions.

Jesmond Dene Real Tennis Club is celebrating the 125th anniversary of the building of the court.

You can read a history of the club here.

What is a Lithograph?
It’s a method of printing using a Limestone, crayons and ink. It relies on the fact that oil and water don’t mix. You can watch a video here. (https://youtu.be/S67Qqov0CdU)

Hole Editions is the workshop of Lee Turner. Lee is based in the Cluny building in the Ouseburn, Newcastle. He takes part in the regular Open Days. He collaborates with artists from near and far. Those featured on his website include George Shaw, Yoko Ono and the late Norman Cornish.

“All our work is hand printed and original. We use the most light fast inks available and high quality acid free papers. Editions are carefully curated and documented. Upon completion of projects the stones and/or plates are effaced, thereby preserving the integrity of the edition and ensuring that no further impressions can ever be printed.”
