In memory and honour of Phil Turner...

I recently made a trip to the East Midlands to see 'Visual Narratives' an exhibition by Phil Turner.

Phil was a very good friend and fellow artist who sadly passed away last month. Phil was working hard towards this solo show and with much courage, his family's wish was for the exhibition to continue. This was an emotional event - but I wouldn't have missed the opening. I was so pleased to have the opportunity to honour the promise I had made to Phil to see his new paintings. Phil was an extremely dedicated and very talented artist, who is sadly missed by many people. The exhibition continues until the 12th November at the Brewhouse, Burton-on-Trent.

A 'snip' from the archive...

During my recent studio move and major 'sort out' I stumbled across many almost forgotten artworks. I was pleased to be reacquainted with my 'cut & paste' scissor sculptures (there are seven of these in total). They were sand cast in aluminium and then heavily polished.

I made use of an existing hole in the wall this afternoon whilst giving my latest paintings some thought. The only thing missing is the black dotted lines on that go on the wall (and across the floor and ceiling) - which is an intrinsic element of these sculptures.
