I am pleased to have a print displayed as part of the current exhibition that has just opened at the Sir John Soane Museum. 'Peace Breaks Out!' focuses on the summer of 1814 when Europe celebrated peace after the Treaty of Paris following the fall of Napoleon. The Soane Museum, working alongside Spitalfields Life chose 6 contemporary artists to produce work in response to this exhibition.Many of the items in this exhibition are souvenirs celebrating the peace brought about at the end of the war. I thought it would be interesting to record these as a print, which in itself can become a souvenir of this exhibition and commemorate the stylistic influences that crossed the newly- reopened channel from Paris.Prints will be available at the museum and also online here. I am delighted to be shown alongside Adam Dant, Romilly Saumerez Smith, Laura Knight, Bridie Hall and Paul Bommer. The exhibition runs until 13th September.
Here is my full image made for SOMA's 10th Anniversary print box set. Mine was inspired by a visit (a little while ago now) to the Ethnographic Museum in Krakow. The 10 prints are all available to view and buy in the gallery in Bristol, as well as online. A steal at only £30 each and the whole box set of ten for £275 it'd be rude not to!
A sneak peak at a print made for SOMA Gallery's 10th Anniversary. As part of the celebration there will be a birthday-day this Saturday at the gallery in Bristol launching 10 prints by 10 different artists to be sold individually and as limited edition box sets. Will reveal the rest later in the week...!
