New Publication out about my inspiration for Hugo Boss's "Poetic Tailoring" Spring/Summer Collection 2012 in the April issue of Marie Claire Czech! Nice to see the work and inspiration being featured together throughout Europe.

So the adventure started last Friday morning, early! It was a very family affair as my partner, I and my parents took to the skies and flew to Gibraltar to then drive into Spain and onto Cadiz. What an adventure it was, filled with much laughter and an abundance of great food and wine, not to mention the beautiful space that was the ECCO where the exhibition was held.
From start to finish, every minute of the trip was fantastic. The city of Cadiz itself is stunning and I would strongly recommend that if you are in the area, near Seville, then take the hour long drive to Cadiz, because the old city is truly lovely and the many restaurants, plaza's are great to enjoy a beer in the evening sun, (which we seemed to do a lot of!)
The exhibition opening was a great success with the Mayor of the city and other museum directors opening the show. The space is stunning, with arched ceilings and marbled floors, it was a true pleasure and honour to be exhibiting in such a great venue and in fact to be taken on a guided tour of the city at night by the major as well as an excellent meal - thank you very much to the city of Cadiz for making our stay so pleasurable.
New publication out now from the AOP, Image magazine reviewing the Photo 50 exhibition. "The Power of transformation" by Helena Rhodes, editor brings together a select group of artists from the exhibition by Sue Steward and talks about their work and inspirations.

So "Alice in Wonderland" tours early than expected! The European Capital of Culture exhibition from Logomo tours from Turku, Finland to the new Contemporary Art Museum in Cadiz, the Espacio de Creación Contemporánea (ECCO). So with that in mind, I am off on Friday morning to sunny Spain for the opening - I am very excited, the space looks absolutely beautiful and I hear the city is stunning. I will post on my return the installation shots.

Here are the installation shots from both PICA, the last two images and QUAD the top two. Very many thanks to both exhibition venues for providing installation shots, particularly PICA as I couldn't attend the opening in Perth, but the venue look incredible. QUAD looks fantastic and I am very pleased to be part of both. The publication produced in conjunction to this is really beautiful and I will post this soon.
More information on both venues can be found below:
