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

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.
