The last couple of months I’ve been gradually getting ready for two exhibitions. The first is a group show in the Dutch town of Nijmegen. The second is a solo exhibiton, in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the town that has been drawing all the attention the last few months for its Jheronimus Bosch exhibition.
The exhibition is going to give me the chance to dip back into work influenced by the very Dutch interiors made by Vermeer, that I was making when I first arrived in The Netherlands back in the nineties. This will be hung alongside more recent work that is more orientated towards the Dutch landscape and our relationship with this most manipulated of environments.
Without giving too much away, I can promise a place for both of the painintgs below.
Empty Room, Oil paint on canvas, 1993
