Red

Just finished this picture, which I'll be exhibiting along with other Jamaica Street illustrators at St George's in Bristol. It's a three part exhibition spread over the course of a year entitled 'Red, Yellow, Blue'. It will be exhibiting from friday 27th August. Also the private view is the 8th September so do come along! Here's the flyer and a bit of blurb about it...
The JSA's eclectic group of illustrators return to St George's with the exhibition 'Red, Yellow, Blue'. This year-long revolving show evolves with St George's tri-annual programme, presenting a unique twist on each colour throughout the year.

Traditionally illustration is associated with the act of distinction; therefore each period the exhibiting illustrators interpret a new primary colour, in their own distinct style, paying homage to this formidable triptych. Starting with 'Red', the thematic simplicity of this minimalist colour palette creates an exciting platform for creativity and diversity, following in the historic footsteps of artistic giants Mondrian, Richter and Newman.

This inventive exhibition highlights a wealth of emerging talent, whilst also promising familiar faces: with Emma Dibben's mouth-watering morsels and Rose Sanderson's weird and wonderful creations; fantastical flights of fancy from children's illustrators Serena Curmi and Teresa Murfin; humorous outings from Leah Heming and Bjorn Rune Lie; horticultural heritage from Hannah McVicar; luminous vistas from Abigail McDougall; and the dark and surreal from newcomer Tom Mead.

The three-part nature of this exhibition guarantees an unravelling year of surprises for new and returning visitors to St George's, creating a dynamic yet harmonious visual treat inspired by the grandeur of this atmospheric venue.
