We move forward from two successful exhibitions in 2016 in Prague and in the USA to the challenge of an exhibition in the Netherlands in the Autumn. We continue to work on A2 sized pieces in portrait format and will be producing four pieces over the year with the theme of 'Freedom'. An essential part of our art is working in series to a common format which does give us all a framework for our creative endeavours.

Faces of Old
I procrastinated about what my theme would be this year. I am working hard for an exhibition temporarily called France to be shown later this year and I don't want too much time taken away from the main game but on the other hand, after April most of the work will be done and then there is still another 4 pieces to be done for Voyageart for the rest of the year, so whilst i wanted to do something french initially, it need not necessarily be so for the whole year. So I decided on faces of old- I am fascinated by how the madonnas and humans have been portrayed over time ( some of them made an appearance in last years work) and I decided I wanted to continue in that vein, exploring different ways of creating them and exploring different aspects. The piece I made for Feb is figures form the Western portal of Chartres Cathedral. I have photographed them a number of times and every time I see them again i take yet another photograph.
