Solo Exhibitions

2024 - Two exhibitions of New Works.

In 2024 I will present new works in two key exhibitions.

The first will be my next London Solo Show with Erskine Hall & Coe in September 2024. These shows always represent a hugely important opportunity and healthy challenge for me; with the freedom to simply create my best work. I look forward to sharing images of the works when the show is open.

The second exhibition will be a collaborative exhibition with my friend and colleague Joseph Walsh . The exhibition will be held at the Centre Culturel Irlandais in October. Having spoken about working together for many years, it is a wonderful opportunity to create works that respond directly to each other.

Solo Exhibition, London 2022

My sixth Solo Exhibition with Erskine Hall & Coe was held in June 2022.

We showed 33 works, including 1 x installation which consisted of seven pieces. If you were not able to get to London to see the exhibition in person, there are beautiful installation images on the gallery's here to see the installation images.
