I found myself at Carrières de Lumières, at the heart of the Alpilles near Avignon this week and was struck by echoes from my little painting, 'A Built Environment'. Carrières is an old limestone quarry which has been cleverly reassigned as an exhibition/performance space. Although it doesn't really do justice to the spectacle that I enjoyed, here's a picture I surreptitiously took on my mobile (photography not allowed even though lots of people were flashing away!).
And here's another, lighter shot where the structure of the interior can be more clearly seen...
This weekend sees my paintings coming off the walls of Waterside Gym and finding their way back to Brooklyn Studios where they will be added to later this week by the work returning home from Nelsons Wine Bar. The studio walls are going to be quite laden by the time the Open Studios begins on Friday 3 July.
Here's a tiny painting entitled "A Built Environment" that was shown at Nelsons. It's a mixed media piece: acrylic paint, drawing ink and collage. It will be back at Brooklyn studio this weekend...if it hasn't sold!
"Whimper" - a painting from last week.

I have lots of new work on display in the underground wine bar, Nelsons. I'm sharing the space again with Deb Wilkes whose work is mainly in oils. You'll find the bar on Crown Street in Hebden Bridge. Here's a link to their FB page if you want to find out what's on:
Here's a painting, shown on the studio table from a few weeks ago. It is now hanging in the wine bar and is entitled "Moon Garden".
