3rd – 18th June 2021
Curated by Tatiana de Stempel & GALLERY46
I’m excited to be a part of this group exhibition in 3-18 June 2021 with so many amazing artists.
I’m showing 2 original paintings (images below)
I haven’t looked at the original of these 2 in some time and I must say the big white border around the frame is very pleasing, plus didn’t remember a lot of the details. It makes me miss using a ballpoint pen again (I just like the grain and meditative work process)
If anyone is around in London please do visit! I’ll be there tonight and maybe for a couple of the performances organised below which sound really great (esp interested in Ivan Cartwright)
