Getting ready for one of the biggest consignments of the year means that there isn't much room to move in the studio at the moment. It's always a challenge to produce a big body of work for a solo show, and it's good to have all the work around you so that you can let the ideas bounce off one another in order to produce a cohesive show.
So at the moment there are an awful lot of canvasses in various states of drying all around!
As soon as the paintings are touch dry, they are photographed, labelled and catalogued. Then they'll go off to my framers to be set into their bespoke gilded frames.
When they come back, they are checked, labelled and wrapped, and are then parcelled up to be consigned to their gallery. They'll be arriving in London (weather permitting) just before Christmas.
