Where to begin with painting and its long and twisting history? Resuscitated and re-murdered so frequently, it might be forgiven its zombified demeanour – no more than skin and mystery.

Treating painting as a personal, private language of which we can only catch glimpses, After presents: Glossary.

Glosses, from the Greek, tongues.  A list of terms and definitions for the difficult and the unusual.

Thirteen painters.

Update to website

Long overdue, but I’ve just uploaded images of new paintings from the 2nd half of 2014 up until now. 2015 has been a difficult year, transitioning from completing my degree to having a full time job. Things having settled down a bit now and I have high hopes for the rest of the year and the start of 2016!

event Maps-31

07 May 2015 – 16 May 2015

There has always been a need to evaluate, quantify and rationalise our understanding of the world and indeed, the universe around us. Today we have sophisticated means to map subtle changes in real-time not only our complex ever-shifting world but also the inner world of the human physical and mental condition.
The group show ‘Maps’ reflects this obsession; responding to the here and now, and exploring ways of representing the spatial, cultural and personal.

Scene’s upcoming exhibition explores work from artists, designers and architects in various media and with varying interpretations of the brief. The exhibition will run alongside a programme of talks, workshops and events exploring the importance of mapping to creative disciplines, and its relevance to our culture today.

The exhibition will be held at 70 Paul Street, London EC2A 4NA, 7th – 16th May 2015.

POP LIVING at Schwartz Gallery


Conceptual Pop. Conceptual Living. Pop Living invites artists to submit work that builds on ideas of ‘pop’ thinking in art and culture; the re/production of culture and living mediated through technology and advertising is captured in a constant techno-documentation of society and the self. The hyper-real and contemporary constructions of living come together in a celebrity-fuelled world of sleek design and fictional future-spaces. Pop Living invites artists working with wall based work to respond to concepts of contemporary living, hyper-reality and transmitted spaces.

Private View:
Wednesday 11th February 2015, 6 – 8.30 p.m

Exhibition dates: 11/02/15 – 28/02/2015

Opening Hours: Thursday – Saturday 1 – 6 p.m or by appointment.
