All of the framing and preparations finally came together on Thursday when everything was cosily loaded into the back of my friend Juliet’s little blue Peugot. Having got completely lost in the dark underbelly of the Barbican – if you think it’s a maze above then try going underneath it all – we surfaced to Level 2 with the help of the wonderful support of Leslie, the Library Technician. He couldn’t have been more helpful and made putting everything up remarkably stress-free, as did Juliet Walker whose brilliant eye and professionalism really helped in hanging my work, as did Macsud for being there and doing all the time consuming jobs that would have worn me out even more. 

There are over 100 original pieces in the show (60 of them being my postcard collages which are shown here in the cases below) covering over 20 years of work.

The earliest painting is from 1990 and is called Imago. I made this when I was at university in Aberystwyth after a trip to Tuscany and it hung at my parents house in Rugby for many years. The most recent pieces are a painting called The New Shore and my etching called Another World, inspired by the song of the same title by Antony and the Johnsons.
