Two exhibitions to see before Christmas

Macmillan Support 2015 einvite sm


If you’re in London this weekend, why not pop by to the Curwen Gallery where they have a Macmillan Cancer Fundraising weekend – a great cause and maybe something for Christmas?  Two of my pieces are amongst the work being sold.



Looking towards December, put the Flux Exhibition at the Royal College of Art in your diaries (11-14 Dec) – promises to be a fab event with over 100 artists all under one roof and 5 of my newest sculptures.

Secret Art Prize 2015

  • Mad as the Mist and Snow 2Super excited to be included in this years ‘Secret Art Prize’ run by the Curious Duke Gallery London.
  • Please vote for me and make my day!  Here’s the link
  • The work selected references WB Yeats and seeks to reflect the tension between the sublime and the harsh realities of life.
  • Mad as the Mist and Snow 3

    Yeats was a poet intensely and often painfully preoccupied with the irreconcilable claims of soul and body; his poetry often a battleground between attraction towards unity and perfection set against the inevitable deficiencies of being human.

  • Mad as the Mist and Snow

    In his work ‘Mad as the Mist and Snow’, Yeats rankles at the loss of the unfettered excitement of youth and yet offers up the possibility that, with the storm, once again we can be the wind that howls and storms and blows.

  • This is a very exiting opportunity so I would love it if you would please vote for me!

The Best thing about Being Education Coordinator is…

…Getting to meet loads of great artists!

Ok I have to admit it, being on a committee was not exactly high on my agenda – but when I was asked by Surrey Sculpture Society (SSS) to take up the role of Education Coordinator, how could I resist?  I’d been coming across loads of great sculptors by attending talks at the RBS (Royal British Society of Sculptors) and at joint exhibitions and through social media (especially twitter @garyscottartist) etc etc and it was a great opportunity to get to know these guys even better!

Seeing great art at exhibitions at the RA, Tate or wherever is important – but there is something extra special about the company of other artists.  I can’t articulate exactly why but they are for me a special bunch and are best encountered first hand.  If this can be at their studio then even better – there is something intimate and therefore especially revealing about an artist’s productive space.

Above is Charles Hadcock FRBS ( pictured at his London Show last Autumn and right Laurence Edwards FRBS ( in the Suffolk Marshes immediately behind his foundry.  These guys have given the first two Lectures I have organised and they were brilliant – the feedback from SSS members and others was incredibly positive.

It’s easy for artists to get stuck in repeated patterns of production – and therefore really important for them to look within once in a while and to ask questions, to push their practice and move on to potentially richer ground.  Seeing inspirational talks is one way of catalysing this process.

The talks are held at Surrey University in Guildford – lovely modern lecture facilities with all the necessary technology to provide fantastic visuals and a great platform for the speakers.  Details of forthcoming talks are on SSS’s web site:-
