When I was invited by the Thrown Contemporary Gallery in Highgate to take part in its Spring 2020 group show, Being Human, I was predictably thrilled. The exhibition brings together a collection celebrating the human figure, human emotions and how we make sense of who we are. My work is showing along side that of Tom Kemp, Diane Griffin, Tom Crew, Russell Heron, Carolyn Tripp, Karina Smagulova and Unit 89. It opened on 6th March, and although the gallery’s doors have closed temporarily in response to COVID social distancing, the exhibition has entered the online realm, thanks to Thrown’s new presence on the international gallery platform Artsy. So if you fancy, you can buy pieces from Being Human, including a number of mine, or browse Artsy more widely for work by luminaries such Grayson Perry or Edmund de Waal. While it is very sad that you can’t visit the gallery in person at the moment, it’s a bit of a blast for my work to be rubbing shoulders with ‘the big boys’ online. If you do get a moment to check it out, please remember to click on the follow button under my name – every little helps to up my digital profile!
Thrown Contemporary has been amazing. Not only pulling together this lovely body of work, ducking and diving with promotional interviews, but also producing a gorgeous catalogue of the show – shown in extract here.
