• Ffiona Lewis – I recently visited the artist at her Suffolk studio to look at and discuss her new work. It includes three ambitious diptyches in oil on canvas, which will form part of the artist’s show at Snape Maltings in August. Along with these canvases there will be groups of smaller paintings and of works on paper. The show, entitled Summer Field, will be accompanied by a publication for which I am to write an essay.

I am also to write an essay for Ffiona’s forthcoming show at The Redfern Gallery, London, dates to be confirmed. An update will follow.


• Patrick Procktor for Elephant magazine online – I was recently commissioned to write a short piece on Procktor’s watercolour portraits for online publication by Elephant magazine. The text is now posted on this website, and can also be read on the magazine’s website, where further images can also be found.
