Now and Then

Melbourne, corner of Brunswick Street and Rose Street, watercolour, 2021.

‘This exhibition of works by Members of the Royal Watercolour Society showcases paintings created in the very recent present alongside those at the earliest points in their career, and everything in between. The display promises to provide visitors with a rare insight into the development of each artist’s creative output, as well as the opportunity to take a piece of work home, whether from now or then.’

1st to 31st October.

RWS AUTUMN: Art in the time of Corona

This latest display of artworks by the Royal Watercolour Society will delve into the challenges encountered by each artist during the Coronavirus lockdown. These extraordinary circumstances have meant that many artists have not been able to create in their usual media, and so for one time only we are excited to deliver an exhibition of Royal Watercolour Society artists, in all media.’

Bather by the River, Bangkok, watercolour 2020.

I have four works in the show. These are from a group of works that were languishing unfinished in my studio. Under a lockdown spring-clean I felt it was time to finish them.

On now 2 – 31 October 2020

Be Part of Art

Past, Present & Future of the Royal Watercolour Society

30 January – 3 February 2019
Bankside Gallery, London.

The RWS has a rich and fascinating history and our Archive & Collection comprising artworks and documents associated with its artists since the formation of the Society in 1804, demonstrates this.

For the first time, paintings, letters, photographs and countless other forms of historic ephemera will go on display in an exhibition at Bankside Gallery to raise awareness of the importance of the Royal Watercolour Society to the past, present and future of British art.

Accompanying this will be an auction of works by contemporary members and a secret postcard sale of works by countless influential British artists. All proceeds from sales will facilitate the renovation of the new RWS gallery space at Whitcomb Street, just off Trafalgar Square.
