I have got several of my latest prints on show at Bar Chocolat, a cafe in Bristol.
Why not meet up with friends and relax for a while with something from their classic café menu if you are in the area.
Soak up the cosy atmosphere and maybe buy a print?

The political and ideological polarity of Russia and the USA during the cold war (retrospectively) makes an interesting starting point for a new project. Apparently there are rumors that the early days of the Russian space program were not only motivated by military and scientific advancement but a search for a new world to populate – to put citizens of the Russian Republic on once they had realized their ambitions of ensuring immortality. There was no God in Russia (officially) and the USA put their trust in God, both were chasing the same dreams, immortality and history. Gagarin achieved both by becoming a God (hero) in his own country and the rest of the world – all gods die young.
As an 11 year old I watched the first moon landing in 1969. I was mad about everything to do with space travel, I would read anything that was about rockets, cosmonauts and astronauts. Later in my life I shook the hand of a man who shook the hand of my all time hero Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin, that was for me like touching history, if only secondhand (excuse the pun).

I have entered 3 screen prints into the ‘Offset’ exhibition at West Buckland School. These images are ‘works on paper’ and are for sale and cost £175.00 each.
This series of prints are a spin-off from the exhibition I did at the school in 2011.
Background to previous West Buckland exhibition
Old images and ideas revisited and recycled – re-executed in print and paint. A body of work based around “Beauty and the Beast” a classic tale of love, rejection and prejudice, where the beauty is the beast and the beast is the beauty. An allegory, a symbolic representation or a metaphor for my feelings towards ART. Read more…

Wouldn’t it be fantastic if an initiative like this existed in North Devon.
Here is an image of mine that was exhibited at The Alabama Art Kitchen (An Art Collective) 2626 University Blvd. Tuscaloosa, AL 35401, USA, during February 2012.
