Peace Breaks Out! - At the Sir John Soane Museum

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.
