An evening at the RA

I had the pleasure of attending the Artist Talk on Thursday evening for the exhibition 'Surface Cutting' running until the 20th February. Curated by Eileen Cooper RA the exhibition celebrates the medium of wood and linocut, known as block printing. It was both inspiring and fascinating to  listen to the 14 Artists talk about the journey they had taken to reach the final prints on display and the part process had played in there ideas and outcome. It was wonderful to see such a diverse range of works on display and I would highly recommend a visit. Personally it was wonderful to see some old RCA peers and tutors, the evening really took me back to my art school days!

RCA Secret 2013

As one of the exhibitors I had the pleasure of attending the Artists’ Party on Friday evening. This exhibition is a real highlight as its a chance to see such a wide range of processes and ideas around the same postcard format. You also have the wonder of who the artist might be, which is the Julian Opie, Paula Rego, Christo?
