I am a painter and theatrical designer interested in the collaborative processes and artworks created by the performance of live theatre, particularly as applied to expectations, illusion, and transformation.
I am currently expanding on the painting side of my constant intersection with art and theatre by showing paintings in London with Art Below recently in Art Below Regent's Park, Art of Angel, The Summer Show at the West Bank Gallery, and recently in the Art Below group show at the Framer's Gallery.
I have a new painting, 'Elevation', being shown in the 'Art of Angel' Group Show at the Candid Arts Trust this January 22-25, 2015. It was inspired by some photos that I took from the observation deck, of statuary on the roof of St. Isaac's Cathedral in St. Petersburg in Russia in 2007. It speaks to me of Russia, its turbulent past and present, and the hope to rise above.
The watercolor's and pastels that you can see have been painted on-site while travelling.
