The show’s theme provided me a chance to let go of any stylistic restraints I (now realise that I unthinkingly) impose on myself as well as exhibit a one-off etching from Goldmark Atelier that would otherwise have remained hidden in my studio.
The collaborative painting that Butch Anthony and I worked on together will also be on show for the first time in the UK. Receiving that canvas from the US was something of a treat because until recently, I had only seen’s Butch’s addition online.
