National Open Art Exhibition 2014

Last night Kaori and I attended the National Open Art Exhibition private view at Somerset House. While I don’t actually have a picture in this exhibition, I did make it into the final round of judging and you can purchase my artwork for a snip on the exhibition website

It was great to meet other artists like Liz Rajmohani Mundle and Emiko Aida (pictured with Kaori). Emiko won the Ward Thomas Prize for her etching and aquatint triptych Requiem.


When I arrived at Somerset House I had the good fortune of sharing a lift with Antony Gormley (Angel of the North).

As most of you know, Antony is a Goldsmiths alumnus and (like several other Goldsmiths alumni) is a former Turner Prize winner. He gave the opening speech of the evening.

Undoubtedly the osmosis of rubbing shoulders with so many creatives in such a tight space had a stimulating effect on me. After quaffing several glasses of a particularly delightful vintage, I began to fantasise about how ahead of my era I might eventually become - given time of course (hic).

The National Open Art Exhibition runs from 18th September to 25th October at Somerset House in The Strand and is free to enter. Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood is the exhibition patron.
