A few weeks ago I made a trip to Marrakech with a suitcase full of brushes, canvas and an easel. Over the following four days I explored the winding narrow lanes of the medina, the vibrant bustling souks, saw the raw pigments and immense colours which they use to dye clothing and so much more. The trip was incredibly enriching and each day I started a painting which I have now been working on back in my London studio.
This way of travelling and capturing the unique energies of other cities marks a broader approach to combining my love of travel and that of painting. This will be the first of many such trips where I go to gather source material and then distill the experiences back in my studio.
The four paintings which I am working on shall be exhibited for the first time to a small number of people on Wednesday 6th March. This evening also marks a new approach to engaging with my collectors and displaying my work.
I have teamed up with my good friend Oliver Soden, an incredible chef who organises sell out supper clubs across the city. Together we are offering a unique culinary experience to a limited number of 30 people. To see what we have in store on the evening check out the menu below.
People are able to chose one starter, one main and then desert is the same for all.
Oliver Soden, spent his early career cooking classic cuisine in fine restaurants in London and Manchester, and went on to graduate with distinction from Le Cordon Bleu School of Culinary Arts. His food style is a mix of classic cooking techniques, lightened with liberal use of herbs and exotic ingredients borrowed from World Cuisine. A constantly evolving style that borrows from current trends for lighter cooking, with an emphasis on using less proteins and letting fruits and vegetables be the true heros of a dish.
