Olympic portrait, work in progress
Thought I would add two new shots of the olympic swimmer Michael Jamieson. The waves are just starting to come in focus but much more to do. Its fairly large 105 x 80cms so lots of ground to cover. Will be rooting for him during the games!
Outside the White Cube
Very excited...have just heard that two of my paintings have been short listed for an exhibition in the project space of the new White Cube Gallery in Bermondsey.
The first annual Outside the White Cube Exhibition will take
place 25th July - 10th August 2012 (while the Olympics is on) at The Bermondsey Project, 46 Willow Walk, London, SE1 5SF. The show is all about sport related images and the works that have been shortlisted are 'Balance' and 'Concentration'.
The exhibition is in support of Crisis, the national charity for single homeless people and will feature the work of both emerging and established artists. More deails to follow when I know more.
Been working hard on this portraits of Michael Jamieson doin what he does best. He is a swimmer for Team GB and normally does the 200m breast stoke. There will be much more detail in the wave and stuff so check back for more developments. The show will feature 20 portraits of Great British olympians will take place this August and September at the DegreeArt gallery space called the Execution Room.
