After a nice long break where I stepped back from exhibiting in favour of taking lots of photographs without looking at them, I have won one of two Artists Awards in Islington Exhibits 2013, running from 15th-31st July!
For this exhibition I will be revisiting Chasing Shadows as a large scale, site specific installation.

At the weekend I went to the alley behind Gibson Gardens to see if the first picture was still surviving…
When I got there I found a very large (but unlocked) gate, and through it the whole alley had been cleaned up. But the picture was still there, and someone had set out a garden chair in front of it so you could sit down and look straight into the picture! I was thrilled!

taken somewhere along Amhurst Road, N16 I think; this plant had the most amazing smell. shot on my rubbish mobile.
the night of the first cherry blossom – i have no real idea why…
the shots are all a few seconds, during which the wind shakes the trees. the camera’s handheld, so my movement’s recorded also.
shot this in whitehall a few summers ago…
keep meaning to do more, properly.
I took these around 2007-2008. Someone described them as being “so honest they’re like being run over by a lorry”. I don’t know about that, but recently I’ve been thinking I might like to have another go.

The luogoComune Projects will be exhibiting at the Galleria Ex Pescheria, Via Pescheria, 23. Cesena (FC), Italy, from 29th December 2010 to 16th January 2011.
42 artists from Europe and America participated in the projects between 2006-2010, learning and sharing experiences through creative projects and ideas.
luogoComune#3 is focused on a collective reflection on the concept of the roundabout – on the cultural and aesthetical meaning of the town-planning scheme redefined by the appearance of roundabouts, and their radical transformation of one of the founding values of the western civility: the crossroad.
