Art Shows that I have Exhibited in


Since GCSE (secondary school), I have been in a number of shows.




2005 GCSE Show at Noadswood School (Dibden Purlieu, Southampton)


This was a group show featuring other pupils from the art department at Noadswood School. The show's aim was to celebrate the completion of the course and took place in the school grounds. This show was used as part of the open day for future pupils and a way for existing pupils to understand what GCSE art entitles.

2007 A Level Show at Brockenhurst College (Brockenhurst, New Forest)


This was another group show which celebrated the end of the A Level Course. It was sited at the College and was viewed during the open days.

For me this was my least successful art show where work I was not proud of was exhibited without my consent.



2008 Year 1 University Show "nothingness" (Winchester Art School, Winchester)


This show was part of my ETP (Exhibition Theory and Practice) module, where we learn't about gallery work.
This was a small group showing featured as part of a mass exhibition for all 1st year students and lasted for less than a week. In the show I displayed a projection of one of my animations, onto a painted canvas. This piece is seen as "cute" and I wanted the viewers to respond to it in this manner - perhaps the viewer could relate back to their own childhood?





2009 Year 2 University Show "Trek around Winchester" (Winchester High Street, Winchester)


For my year 2 ETP (Exhibitions Theory and Practice) module I needed to display work outside of the Art School. For this show I produced one of my paintings into small prints which I then placed all over Winchester High Street, putting them in areas where people would not notice. There were a lot of little gaps hidden all over Winchester which are normally unnoticed. I wanted to fill these voids with coloured paintings, to create something out of nothing. However, the night of the private view, all these prints had vanished. This achieved my aim - everyone then has their own piece of free art.





2010 Winchester of Art Degree Show (Winchester Art School, Winchester)


This group show contains all students in my year group showing their degree work - a celebration of the 3 year course. My work was in a shared space with another artist. I displayed a total of 5 paintings. These paintings are colourful using gloss paint and expandable foam. I was experimenting with the use of texture, applying the paint from quite a distance in a random formation. The aim of project changed dramatically over the course of my degree and this is the end result. The concept of my show was "faded childhood memories", but realistically and unknown to the lecturers it was a chance to rebel from the rules and limitations of an Art School.





2013 Juneau Project: I am the Warrior (John Hansard Gallery)


This is a callobration exhibition, where I was able to show case three paintings from my Parrot and Jungle Collection. It had a lot of positive response and was a huge success. Below is the pan view taken from the John Hansard Twitter page and the three paintings I chose for the show.




 

 




2013 - Freedom's Road (Aspex Gallery)

The idea was to create a postcard size painting based on the title of the exhibit. This was a mini display portrayed in the gallery. The idea of mine was to experiment with my new technique (wax and ink), linking it with freedom. Below are the paintings that I created.




 



2013 Spellbound (Wool House Project: Element Arts Gallery)


Based on the international links of Southampton through time with the concept of imagination, my painting below was featured in the show. I based my painting on several different ships throughout time associated with the Southampton Docks, including the Titanic. I have had lots of praise and feedback for this show.


 



2013 November-February (OrthoSpace Gallery, Portsmouth)


My Parrot collection on display for three months at a small gallery in Portsmouth. This was on display with several different local artists.





2014 March-June (Garbos Gallery, Portsmouth)


Second gallery show of my Parrot collection on display for three months at a small gallery in Portsmouth. This was a solo show where my work were on show near the window.





2014 April (Perrys Art Shop Gallery, Southampton)


Third gallery show of my Parrot collection (small parrot painting) on display for a month at the local art shop. This was on display with other artists from the local area.





2014 Summer (Library Barbers, Portsmouth)


Fourth and final gallery show of my Parrot collection. This viewing space shows a collection of local artists' works.






2014 Summer Exhibition (The Art House Cafe Southampton)


This show is the annual summer show that the Art House puts on. It is a collaborative show where lots of artists applied to have their work on display. I was lucky enough to be one of the artist. On show is my recent painting "Flowers of Past" from my new project (you can acutally just see me in the photo underneath my painting!). I have had a lot of praise from this show and the painting on display.

Open Exhibition 2016 - A Sporting Life (Southampton City Art Gallery)

25 June – 10 September 2016. All residents of Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Wiltshire and Dorset were invited to submit their artwork for the open exhibition at the main gallery in Southampton. In the year of the Olympic Games, the theme is ‘sport and recreation’. I was fortunate enough to have my painting on display "Equipment of Champions". This painting was out of my comfort zone and it took along to complete. But I am grateful that is painting was chosen along with lots of other amazing sport themed art works.
