David Tindle: 'John' (19730 oil on canvas.


• A retrospective show of work by the artist David Tindle is to open at Huddersfield Art Gallery in November. Though long resident in Italy, Tindle was born and brought up in Huddersfield. I have been commissioned to write an essay for a publication marking the exhibition, and will visit the artist this summer in order to undertake research. Updates will follow.


Fraser Taylor and Rose Wylie have recently worked in collaboration, producing new work to be shown in an exhibition in Glasgow next year. An ambitious publication documenting the collaboration between the two artists will be published to coincide with the show. The book will include several texts, including a new one by myself on Fraser Taylor. Again, updates will follow.
