Modern Art at Zafiros

Yesterday I spent a wonderful hour or so in Zafiros, one of Cornwall’s best contemporary cafes, and being the permanent home of some of my paintings, it has a great collection of modern art, situated at 3 New Bridge Street in the heart of Truro.

My work has been continuously on display in Zafiros for 4 years and during this time I have replaced paintings as and when one has sold, but as the premises have recently been redecorated I thought it was a good time to exhibit some new work and I changed over most of the paintings yesterday.

I would like to thank Mandy and Darren, along with Jon and all of the staff for their constant support, and if you are in Truro you know where to go for some good food, a nice friendly buzz and some modern art.

Barcelona & Reus Exhibition

I am delighted that my work is returning to Spain and that ‘Carnival Fizz’ will be going on exhibition in Barcelona at Galería Bernet, along with several other of my paintings.  

‘Carnival Fizz’, which was painted in 2009, is quite familiar to many being the painting that I have used as a background image in the past, and indeed is the image that .Galería Bernet are using on their website.  This will be a two gallery exhibition, taking place in Barcelona and then Reus, which is being staged by Galería Bernet Bernet and La Llotja de Reus.

Almost exactly three years to the day since it was last seen in public this is the first time that the painting will have been exhibited since it was on show in my two man exhibition alongside Sir Peter Blake at The Bristol Gallery in April 2010.

‘Las Fallas’ and ‘Viva Valencia’ will also be returning to Spain for the show in Barcelona, they were last exhibited in Valencia for Christmas throughout December 2010 and January 2011.
