Its been 6 months since I finished my residency at the Florence Trust and this Friday sees the first opportunity for this years artists to show their work to the masses. I’ve met a number of FT 2012 artists and can’t wait to go back to see the place and catch up with artists old and new. If you’ve not been I highly recommend a visit to this stunning building in a leafy part of north London. I recently met this years Florence Trust Axis Bursary artist Hanae Utamura at the London Art fair where she described how she’s used her studio as a large evolving installation rendered in layers of paint and plastic. While Ben Woodeson will no doubt be challenging health and safety regs in a new and nerve inducing way. Not to be missed.
I’m going to be showing with Rise Art in the Art Projects section (stand P29) of the London Art Fair. My 2009 painting Fred will feature alongside a selection of original works and prints by Avigail Talmor, Ting-Ting Cheng, Chris Shaw Hughes and Edd Pearman.
The Art Projects section features many other project spaces and galleries include Edel Assanti (who hosted Superunknown in 2010) and Hannah Barry while Limoncello and Serpentine will both be showing a selection of their print editions.
The fair runs from 18th – 22nd January at The Business Design Centre, Islington.
