Join me for an online talk about the upcoming Blackdown Hills show.

Updated: Oct 27

On Friday 4th November, I will be taking part in an online talk about the upcoming show, 'Paradise Found: New Visions of the Blackdown Hills', in collaboration with Art-Earth.


I will discuss the artists I have selected for the show; for their use of different media and their individual practices and talent. You can see an example of each of the artists' work below and, as you can imagine, I am very excited to see how each of them will respond to the project:


The exhibition is a co-curated show that will showcase around 80 works from 36 artists with a diverse range of styles and disciplines. As the title suggests, it is a project based in The Blackdown Hills - an area of extraordinary natural beauty, which, due to its relative inaccessibility, has remained largely unspoiled. It was a place loved by a group of artists known as The Camden Town Group, who painted there in the early 20th Century.⁠ ⁠


Each of the three curators have invited 12 artists to visit a specific place -each one relating to an earlier painting by Camden Towners: Spencer Gore, Robert Bevan, Charles Ginner or Stanislawa De Karlowska. ⁠ ⁠The contemporary artists will respond to the same scene and use their own practice to reflect on the typography of the land and their sense of the surrounding environment. ⁠ ⁠


In spring 2023, a show at @thelmahulbertgallery, Honiton, will exhibit the works of the Camden Town Group, alongside the works by the contemporary artists and a series of talks by guest speakers. ⁠ ⁠
