When (S)pain became the Norm opens its doors to London!
I can’t believe I am even typing this post – that at this very moment, my new solo exhibition of some 170 paintings, prints and illustrations is opening its doors to London, and the world! Located across two floors in the prestigious Strand Gallery in the heart of London’s West End, this exhibition represents the last 6 years of my artistic endeavours.
As I write this post, my body is still aching from the exertion of hanging this most comprehensive show of my career, but seeing how the exhibition has turned out at the end of it all makes every hour of bubble wrapping, every relentless week of painting and every moment’s worry about deadlines and deliveries worth it. Because it just looks great.
We finished hanging the show on the dot of 7pm last night without a single chance to take proper photos. But here are just a few shots of the headlining painting and me hanging my new Marie Antoinette Norm in her glamourous Versailles-style frame. More photos will follow any day now as well as all the news from this exciting new exhibition which will take visitors through three important periods of my artistic development: my accident paintings, my return to painting Spain as a primary inspiration, and of course my paintings and illustrations of the Norms.
That’s all from me – I have an exhibition to get to! I really hope you will join me there, and if you can’t please tell your friends! More details about the show can be found on my website here.
