New Work / Group Show


My latest painting Osmosis will be exhibited as part of ‘Summer Mix’, the biannual group show at Lawrence Alkin Gallery, London. The exhibition will feature a cross section of art from practitioners across the galleries roster.


On display will be a selection of original artwork and editions from a host of acclaimed and emerging British and International artists including Damien Hirst, Teresa Duck, Nick Smith, Francis Bacon, Sepe, Keaton Henson, Zoe Grace, Harland Miller, Grayson Perry, Candice Tripp, Erin Smith and Lucy Sparrow.


Mix opens with a private view on July 28th and is open until August 20th.
