I’m delighted to be taking part in painting exhibition Mountain Size with the Contemporary British Painting group, curated by Gordon Dalton and the team at the Pineapple Black gallery in Middleborough. Open 1-30th Nov and related talks during its duration as part of the Conversations in Painting festival. Van study xi is parking up there in the exhibition.

Mountain Size features artists whose work has a relationship to landscape, as well as to the history, legacy and traditions of painting itself. This does not mean it is divorced from the wider realities around it or a fruitful critical dialogue with other art forms, but that painting itself is mountain sized, a large, seemingly immovable force yet one that is changeable with time.
