Tom White from Clifton Fine Art, Bristol  was cycling past my studio last week and popped in to look at some of the new large paintings he could see through the window. I was busy working  – possibly a bit grumpy as I ask people to make appointments when I am working at the studio but let him to have a closer look.

He invited me to show work at Clifton Fine Art and took away 2 large paintings: ‘Imposing order on chaos’ and ‘Confidence Tricks’ as well as 4 smaller works featuring dripped bitumen figures with colour. These paintings are now for sale from his gallery – no need to even ask grumpy me about them – though I am happy to talk about the ideas and process of making should you ask!
