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.

The Tuareg are sometimes called the 'Blue Men' after their long flowing indigo robes and head dresses. The indigo dye leeches out onto their skin, turning it dark blue. The fabric also has a sheen that comes from being beaten flat with wooden bats to 'iron' it.
