Black Swan Arts Open 2022. I have two paintings of my daughter selected for the Black Swan Arts Open in Frome. This exhibition runs from 15 July-11 September. School Girl and Cat, oil on aluminium 36x28cm. I often paint childhood memories. These portraits of children are on the threshold of adolescence which is a time of transformation.
In the Sitter oil on aluminium 36x28cm, my daughter assists me in a magic trick exploring the theme of psychological transformation through play: a girl vanishes…now you see her now you don’t.
