New Series

unloading-murmansk

 

The Abbeydale Exhibition is up until December 31st, I have 5 paintings in a show in Rotherham, and an affordable art fair and exhibition to curate at the end of November, and a commission. What better time to start work on a new series 🙂

Unloading – Murmansk is the first in a group of paintings that will be drawn from the experiences of ordinary men and women serving to support the Arctic Convoys of 1941 – 1944. The paintings will be exhibited in July next year, to commemerate the 75th anniversary of convoy PQ17. This series continues the focus on untold history that is an emerging theme within my work. We know much about the Royal Navy’s role in the convoys, less about the civilians who played the most essential role in an action that arguably won the war. Thankyou for looking and I hope the painting engages you 🙂
