I didn’t want to jinx it, but now it is confirmed:
My photographic print JUST STOOD THERE - HOW TO TRAIN A PASSIVIST has been selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

The Summer Exhibition runs from the 21st of June 2022 until the 21st of August 2022. The theme chosen by the exhibition’s coordinator, Alison Wilding RA, is ‘Climate’. I am over the moon!

JUST STOOD THERE - HOW TO TRAIN A PASSIVIST is a photograph of a wall at Peckham Levels, a unique creative hub occupying a multi-story car park in Peckham, London. Nothing in the image or the scene was manipulated or changed. It is, what it was. The essence of the creative act was the subject selection and its re-contextualisation by giving it a title.

I attended the nearby Camberwell Art College in 2012. The Peckham Levels building was a functioning car park back then, with a bar and some pop-up exhibitions on the top floor. I often wandered around this derelict building and found many interesting scenes. There was a unique interplay between the building's signage, walls, signs of decay and the surrounding built environment. I took an image of a large window with a red 'No Smoking' sign next to it, looking onto an endless row of chimneys queuing on top of the residential houses below.

In 2022 I attended a talk arranged by the Nobel Peace Center, titled 'Troll Factories, Lies and Propaganda' presented by photographer Jonas Bendiksen. He travelled to the town of Veles – a North Macedonian epicentre for fake news production. He talked about his project in conversation with Peter Pomerantsev, a journalist and writer specialising in propaganda and media development. At the end of the talk, the presenter asked the two experts what can help us to tell fake news from the truth; their answer was: context. It is all about context.

This revelation brought back to mind the row of chimneys and the 'No Smoking' sign in the multi-story car park in Peckham. The strange composition of this sight included both the subjects of 'context' and 'climate issues'. So ten years later I returned to re-photograph this image. As it happened, the area went through significant gentrification in the meantime, and the car park was converted into an artist studio compound, closed to visitors.

I wandered around the alleyways surrounding the building at street level, pondering in frustration about overpopulation and the disappearance of all the wild places, both natural and urban, when I found a small enclave, a leftover car park, opening onto the street but part of the building. It still had the old, derelict, wild, decaying atmosphere, and a strange accumulation of graffiti and 'fire exit' signs adorned the walls. This photograph has been made of a wall, stained by air pollution, coloured by random graffiti, and decorated with two 'fire exit' signs mounted at the same spot but pointing in opposite directions.

The scene was first confusing. I just stood there, trying to make sense of it. It was right off the street at a place where you normally go in case of fire, not where you were supposed to escape from. It created a sense that I was standing at a dangerous spot, the only dangerous spot, whereas everywhere else was safe while giving me opposing instructions of how I should survive this situation.

The human psyche is a complex instrument. When it feels intense fear, its decision-making processes often shut down. In fact, it is possible to train the brain to shut down in the face of danger if escape routes are repeatedly aborted or opposing instructions are given on how to find them, overwhelming the system. This phenomenon is called ‘learned helplessness’. The brain is the leadership of the body system. It needs to give the person clear and concise instructions on what to do immediately in a life-threatening situation. When the circumstances make this impossible, it is like a short circuit; the system shuts down. The same happens on a large scale within society.

When government propaganda creates opposing information in frightening situations because the leadership is inadequate, members of the community lose trust. Not only in their leaders but generally in the existence of an escape route, even though it does exist. This is how some governments train people into being passive on a mass scale.

Leo (80 x 80 cm, enamel on patinated copper panel) has been selected for the exhibition ‘ELEVATE 04’ in the Shard.

The exhibition is curated by Kate Enters under the umbrella of ArtCan, a peer network artist organisation.

About LEO:
A unique chemical process was applied to the copper base to create random cellular patterns on its surface. Whilst interacting with these patterns of patina, sometimes following them, sometimes altering them with the paint, a rhythm of surrender and control was created. The painting process became a quest to find remedies for fractures that exist on all levels of human experience and, in a symbolic manner, to perform corrections treating the artwork as a voodoo doll.

LEO explores ideas of non-dualistic philosophies from Eastern spiritual practices and other systems of exploration, like astrology. The Lion is the second sign of the fire triplicity and the fifth sign of the tropical zodiac. It is a creative, sociable, dramatic sign that loves to be in the centre. Leo is archetypally the performer and the artist. It invites us to express ourselves, honour our hearts' desires, and allow our inner child to have fun. Every year, the transit of the Sun through the sign of the Lion encourages us to celebrate existence as divine play and live it to the fullest.

STORIES 02 officially opened on the 3rd of August in the Kroll offices at The News Building (aka Baby Shard) near London Bridge. The show is curated by Kate Enters under the umbrella of ArtCan, a peer network artist organisation.

Rising Up (80 x 80 cm hand-finished giclée print on synthetic board) will be on the wall until February 2023.

About the painting:
It was inspired by visions occurring in altered states of consciousness, including my experience with the Lucia N°03 hypnagogic light machine. This device exerts wide-spectrum solid and flickering light in varying frequency combinations inducing the brain to visualise highly vivid, colourful, and perfectly symmetric mandala formations melting from one into the other, sometimes in three dimensions. The light produced by the machine is not coloured and has no shape, it is experienced with closed eyes through the eyelids, and the images are created by the brain, unique to the experiencer. It is basically a streamlined version of Brion Gysin’s Dreamachine, another version of which was available to try for the public in Woolwich this summer.

My encounter with the Dreamachine in 2017 sparked the idea to make the images I envisioned visible to the eye so they could be shared. My method of painting is accidental and organic; hence I created symmetry by mirroring the image of my paintings digitally. Due to the detailed cellular patterns, this resulted in intricate and mesmerising images, closely imitating my visions during the above-described experience.

The prints are hand-finished with transparent enamel the same way the original painting had been created, covering the entire surface cell-by-cell.

Green Haven (36 x 36 cm, enamel and oil on copper sheet) will be on show from August 6th to September 24th in "Collaborations".

Linden Hall Studio and Goodnestone Park have teamed up for an exciting new project, collaborating on an exhibition of painting, print and exterior sculpture.

The wall hanging works will be shown within the Goodnestone Gallery Space, which has been renovated from a wonderful old stable. The exterior sculpture will be shown within the beautiful Goodnestone grounds at Goodnestone Park Gardens, Kent, CT3 1PL

Wings of Reality was selected by Scarab Short Film Festival! Scarab Short Film Festival is an internationally regarded independent short film festival that was established to bring independent global cinema to the world stage.

I am delighted to being interviewed by artist and curator Chisara Vidale and featured on her wonderfully stylish website.

Fern and Glade is a new artist-led platform that features the work of contemporary artists who draw inspiration from the natural and metaphysical world.

The natural is defined as 'that which exists in or is derived from nature; not made or caused by humankind' and the metaphysical as 'the reality that exists beyond the physical world and our immediate senses.'

This space shares the work of artists who are examining, dissecting and re-imagining these themes that are so pivotal to our understanding of ourselves and the world around us. Fern and Glade is curated and run by artist and curator Chisara Vidale.

My painting Let Me See has been selected for a group show:‘Expanded Painting’.

Opening night is Thursday 10th March 18:00-22:00 at the AIR Gallery, The Warehouse, 30 Grosvenor Road, Altrincham, WA14 1LD. Doors open from 6pm; book a free ticket via Eventbrite or turn up on the night and complete a track and trace form on the door.

Exhibition Continues: 11th March-2nd April.
The gallery is open: Wednesday-Friday: 11am-6pm and Saturday: 12noon -5pm.

“Painting is one of arts fundamental mediums, explored and enjoyed by thousands across the centuries. Since ancient Greece, painting has been the most dominant art form; used a way to tell stories, record history, present the self, the world, science, literature and politics. All from the hushed silence on a flat stationary surface.

But what happens when painting no longer wants to be silent? When artists want to expand beyond the flat plane, where the focus is no longer on presenting realism but a move towards conceptual ideas and exploration. What happens when we stop and ask: What is a painting?

This exhibition presents the works of 27 artists who are doing just that: taking a more radical approach to painting and pushing the boundaries of what a painting is, how it is made, what it is made with and how it is presented.

Paintings relevance in contemporary society has been questioned many times over the last century with other mediums such as photography, installation art and digital technologies taking the place where painting would once thrive. However in reference to Titmarsh's publication; this exhibition aims to show that as these formal boundaries tumble, something new and exciting can emerge.”

Exhibiting Artists: Alan Begg | Andee Collard | Celia Johnson | Charlie Franklin | Clara Fantoni | Dan Hamer | Deb Covell | Fiona Chambers | Helen K Grant | Jamie Kirk | Jayson Gylen | Laura Jane Scott | Lisa Denyer | Liz Elton | Luke Skiffington | Luke Parry | Mat Birchall | Mike Chevaz-Dawson | Nicola Bolton | Reka Ritt Laklia | Richard Baker | Sam De Freitas | Sam Owen Hull | Sean Penlington Stefanie Zocco | Stephen Carley | Woo Sun Choi

About the work:
I used acrylic paint to create this work unconventionally, handling it as if it were a sculptural material, formed once dried, more 'arranged' than 'painted'. It is part of a series of interpretations of the actions 'burying and excavating' by covering and exposing layers of paint and metal. Establishing a discourse between the tangible material and unconscious mind, I explored how the actions of burying and excavating can be understood, carried out, felt, and perceived, how can they be experienced both in their literal and metaphorical senses, physically and mentally as fragmenting and unifying actions.

‘Conference of One Person’ (2021) is now online here. A collaborative project under the umbrella of @newplatformart artistic mentoring and development programme for 2021 in association with @parkerharrisco, it has been a highly informative and supportive course and, I am extremely grateful for having been part of it.

“Our collaborative project, “COPped Out” emerged from our chosen theme of the global climate crisis. It was contextualised through the COP26 conference in November 2021.

The collaboration took the form of ongoing, and continuously developing, conversations developed through a series of supportive online meetings that facilitated knowledge exchange and critique of practice between the five artists in the group: @teresazerafabyrne @sheilmacneill @sarareevedraws @kvduongart and @rekaritt.

The project was informed partly by images and sounds from the COP26 conference, sourced (shared by local artist and team member, Sheila MacNeill). Each artist created a landscape format work (digital or physical) in their own style and perspective. Through this process each artist shared the personal narratives that connected them to the overarching theme. These narratives were expanded through ongoing group reactions and feedback.

Images of the resulting artworks have been assembled into short videos. Each video combines soundscapes recorded during COP26 (e.g. sound of helicopters, music, singing, drumming) along with a short narrative from each artist about the thoughts, motivations and feelings that led their creative processes.

As our theme is vast and touches on the most basic survival instincts of everyone on the planet, the artworks reflect personal and emotional responses. These can be seen as expressions of the various coping mechanisms the artists utilised to find balance between despair over the global climate crisis, and the hope that manifested itself through the supportive aspect of the collaborative process, and the wider, community driven climate justice movement.”

Exhibition close to Nottingham up until the 4th of March 2022!!

Human Gold: Our Universal Human Values is an exhibition of paintings, presented by a group of leading Hungarian artists, exploring universal human values.

What is that connects us all? What makes our thoughts? What is in our actions? What helps us to make our future? And what helps us live together? Love, the pursuit of peace, compassion and humanity, the pursuit of harmony within our narrower and wider community, and the loving deeds that result from it – these are all our important, universal values.

The @newplatformart artistic mentoring and development programme has been an enlightening journey, approaching its finale in December. I have met a fantastic group of visual artists from all over the UK during the program. At the moment we are in the process of fine-tuning our last project in cooperation with @teresazerafabyrne @sheilmacneill @sarareevedraws and@kvduongart.

About the project:
In the afterglow of COP26 we are investigating what we are left with after the event, the lingering frustration, maybe some hope, our reactions to what reached us from it and what should have but didn’t, the imprints that images, soundscapes and written accounts left on our consciousness and how they changed our understanding of the world around us.

It’s not like I haven’t been obsessed with copper before, but I fell in love even more with the material during this workshop. It was a super-fun three days hammering contest at #londonsculptureworkshop, learning how to make copper sculpture.

It was magical to watch how the sheet metal became alive, moving and stretching, turning into organic forms. I hadn’t planned what I was going to make, just got carried away by the beautiful shapes, surfaces and patterns during the process. My arms got so tired that it felt like they would fall off, but it was so much worth it! Fun, magic, miracles and loads of useful information!

Thank you, @hammer.and.tongs, for teaching us and ensuring we make it through in one piece. The location was a treat; Thames Side Studios, by the river, has a lovely well-maintained industrial aesthetic, with a half sank boat in front of it like a giant decaying artwork.

Fantastic news, I feel honoured!

My digital work Dancing Queen has been selected by LoosenArt for a group exhibition in Rome, Italy, in October 2021. The theme of the exhibition is Folklore and Traditions: "Pictures cannot be considered to be merely documents. They are also able to capture, preserve, interpret and reinvent occurrences, situations, places that are progressively disappearing or - on the contrary - still surviving, like folklore and traditions."

"This exhibition aims to collect photo, digital and video works that are capable of catching the essence, the traditional part of our society - e.g. agricultural objects that are not in use anymore, practices or celebrations, folkloristic costumes, ethnic museums and collections. In other words, everything reminding us of our roots, of the most genuine side of the society we live in."

Selected artworks can be viewed on the Loosenart website.

I'm over the moon to participate in this screening next week, on the 9th of September! Wings Of Reality is going to Hotel Elephant! Who is coming with me? Free tickets are available here.

A wonderful exhibition 'Alternative Textile' is now open at the Society of Hungarian Artists. Works have been created during the 2019 Alternative Textile Symposion. The Symposion, established by Márta Paczona in 2017, arranges summer residencies for Hungarian and international artists to introduce them to various technologies used by the textile industry. It creates an inspiring milieu as artists are often totally new to this medium, discovering it from their distinct perspectives, through the lenses of their practice and familiar media.

In 2017 I was fortunate to be invited to this residency and learnt about the “loop-stitched” method. András Gönci, ARAX Kft invented the technology by repurposing some giant old industrial machinery. It uses recycled fabric fibres to create large-sized tapestry. The thin threads can be arranged by the artist similar to using paint on a canvas. Different colours can be blended or layered just the same way. The designs are then locked in place by this giant machinery that can handle a 2-meter wide work with unlimited length. What a fantastic experience, creating these beautiful large-scale tapestries out of 100% recycled material!

Exhibiting artists: Antal Tizedes Aliz, Bíró Anna, Burián Norbert, Huszár Katalin, Keszerice Tünde, Lőrincz V.

About the image: At the beginning of the pandemic, I noticed my increased need for symmetry. I started to explore how a symmetric image affects the mind and suggests stability and safety, examining visions occurring in altered states of consciousness, including my experience, trying the Lucia N°03 hypnagogic light machine during the 2019 Breaking Convention event. The device exerts wide-spectrum solid and flickering light in varying frequency combinations inducing the brain to see extremely vivid, colourful, and perfectly symmetric mandala formations melting from one into the other, sometimes in three dimensions. The light produced by the machine is not coloured and has no shape. It is experienced with closed eyes through the eyelids. The images are created by the brain and are dynamic, indescribable, non-reproducible and unique to the experiencer. And I so much wanted to share them. Since then, I have been incubating the idea of making these images visible for the eye. My method of painting doesn’t allow the creation of symmetry as it is accidental and organic, so I created the effect by mirroring the image of the 80 x 80 cm middle panel of the triptych Ember Ember Ember (enamel on copper, 2020). The colour is the inverse of the original painting. This is the closest I could get to the Lucia N°03 light machine experience. HOPE you enjoy!

Expired Map of Paradise has been selected for the Bath Society of Artists Open Exhibition. The annual Bath Society of Artists exhibition is usually held at the Victoria Art Gallery for five or six weeks during the spring and summer. It is the highlight of the Society calendar and a big social event for Bath's artistic community, but unfortunately due to the pandemic the 2020 show had to be cancelled. However, the exhibition will now take place online, hosted on the Victoria Art Gallery website from 2nd November-3 January 2021. I hope you can visit the virtual exhibition at www.victoriagal.org.uk.

Expired Map of Paradise eatures a fraction of a map of an industrial area in Budapest. This area was very popular during the Cold War as there were many factories and war shelters to provide some sense of safety. It is now deserted. The well refers to a children’s poem from Weöres Sándor, a wonderful allegory of transformation.

Narrow way, big wide way (English) Narrow way, big wide way, between them a well like cave.
When you peek in take good care:
hundred holes and cracks are there.
If you're looking very long
you might find me until dawn.
Small walnut, big walnut, between them a hazelnut.
Here was built a fancy house,
hundred rooms and hundred spires.
If you're walking long enough
you might find me in twelve months.

The painting has originally been a celebration of trans-generational recovery from the trauma of war, a tribute to the transformation that enables forgiveness through remembrance. It seems to me now there is some sort of a second wave when it comes that recovery as if the remembrance wasn’t clear enough. So much about second waves.

Night Vision was selected for Fusion Art’s 5th Anniversary International Online Juried Art Exhibition. It is on between 1 November 2020 and 31 October 2021 here. Interestingly it starts on the 2nd Anniversary of the painting :) as it has been completed on Halloween two years ago.

Already four years ago! This was my last VR short film shooting. It’s been very long I haven’t touched VR. Good news, it’s back!

What an intense year this is turning out to be! Bringing opportunities of transformation, asking those questions that with the words of David Whyte “can make or unmake a life, questions that have patiently waited for you, questions that have no right to go away…” (Sometimes by David Whyte)

Well, they have been lingering around for long, needed a pandemic to hold a flashlight on them while creating space, away from distractions, to discover them if I dare. Not an easy call, a lot of compassion is needed to oneself and others in moments when it gets super tough.

We were all invited to look at closer to our relationship with ourselves, with others, with nature and with technology, to do the necessary reparations through acknowledgement, anger, courage and honesty. It is still in the distance, but I now have a sense of the light at the end of the tunnel and lots of hope in my backpack to make it through.

As for me, healing majorly comes from art. This year it was time to repair my relationship to technology, particularly VR.

Thanks to the bursary I received from a-n The Artists Information Company and Arts Council England I was finally able to learn creating cinematic VR / 360 video from beginning to end with my equipment. I had the ideas, the equipment, experience in recording and displaying, but I needed to learn post-production, editing and stitching to produce this kind of unique artistic content.

I’ll attempt to lay down my entire journey with VR here: https://www.a-n.co.uk/blogs/journeys-into-virtual-reality/

There were and are so many unexpected turns, trying challenges and empowering support, it is hard to believe life can create such a meaningful narrative.

A short version of the above VR work from 2016 and its installation views at the Crypt Gallery can be found on this website in the VR Journeys & Short Film section. When you look at it, consider, that the film is a VR installation within another, a physical installation. They are parallel and complementary to each other. The swing is used as a vehicle, like a spaceship, to connect the two realities and transport the experiencer from one to the other and back. With this in mind, the snippets on the website might be easier to put in context.

I am very excited about taking part in one of the first post-apocalypse exhibitions in London @boomergallery. Let Me See has been selected, and this is where you can see it. The show will run from 10 to 17 July with a private view on 10 July 6 to 9 pm. You will be greeted with champagne and finger food to mess your mask, aaaaand exhibition catalogues and great art.

Just came home from a two weeks residency in Hungary, meeting beautiful people and artists, reconnecting with my roots. It has been arranged in the county where my parents were born. I have been working with 15-20 international and Hungarian artists on large scale textiles, everyone on their designs, pouring our soul into the fabric. Thank you for the organisers and the participants for this super-intense magical trip.

My painting A Major Issue is exhibited at 508 Gallery. What a lovely space! The exhibition is extended until the 13th of July 2019. Check out Contemporary Landscape; part of Kensington and Chelsea Art Weekend.

You Are Safe - A Non-Linear Perspective has been installed in Open Society Foundations offices in correspondence with the earlier installed The Furthest Mirrors and The Furthest Reflections series.

Whereas The Furthest Mirrors and The Furthest Reflections series were focusing on the notion of giving, this one focuses on the notion of taking. Brought together they question the harmony, investigate and weigh the equality of these two notions that manifest within one’s actions on a personal and social level. They are examining greed, the condition which arises when the two notions are out of balance. This is a mental condition created by fear of not being enough, not having enough, not being safe; a loss of trust caused by some sort of past trauma. A person living with this fear needs to integrate the feeling of safety to be able to cure greed.

The line that dissects the surface of the painting follows the map of Pangea to reveal the warm reflection of the copper base that shines like a treasure beneath. The shape of it is similar to an embryo pulsating through the seven panels like a non-linear period of development, getting ready to be born or reborn spontaneously.

Pangea, the single continent can symbolise the analogous unity of all humanity and, by extension, the unified individual. This symbol can inspire the desire to create a unified, global civilisation where each of its members feels connected to all others. Similarly, to mirror that unified quality in the individuals themselves.

The four elements of nature are brought together. The crusted texture of the paint evokes earth. The engraved line is like a river cutting its way through the land, evoking water. The copper below evokes fire. The blue edges that envelope the images evoke air.

Pieces of a broken clock are scattered throughout the landscape; there is only the present moment. It seems to be the right time to recreate the utopian paradigm of Pangea where conflicts need not be resolved because they have not been created. Perhaps this is the right time to realise Earth is a limited resource, but there is plenty for everyone. It is a closed system, one within which an individual’s actions have a ripple effect on the whole of humanity. It is also the right time to realise the Universe is an unlimited resource, but there will never be enough for greed.

Cinematic VR Installation TWO: SEPARATION will be shown 15-17 September 2017 at SECOND DRAFT, a Peckham Festival Fringe Art event - Safehouse 2, 137 Copeland Road, London SE15 3SN.

Two Separation is a 4 minutes site specific VR film and installation that explores the phenomena of lucid dreaming, the concept of personal space and the concern of existence outside one’s cognitive beliefs.

Ticket holders only. Please book your 10 minutes time slot and arrive in time, otherwise you may have to wait until the next empty slot.

The Furthest Mirrors and The Furthest Reflections series has been installed in Open Society Foundations offices.

The Furthest Mirrors; I Am, The Furthest Mirrors; Vulnerability, The Furthest Reflections; Peace and The Furthest Reflections; Strength are four paintings that were created to examine a metaphysical concept which can be best illustrated by the infinity mirror; two mirrors turned toward each other creating endless reflections within each other, cast ever further from the centre. If someone stood between these mirrors, their image would be reflected further and further from the person themselves, on into infinity.

The essence of this concept is the idea that each person’s life experience follows the structure of such mirrors: the individual, in the centre, sees their reflection scatter in all the mirrors, like white light projected through infinite prisms. The closest mirrors represent the closest relationships, like family and friends, further ones represent wider communities one belongs to, even further ones represent the largest communities like nations or religions and onward toward totalities like humanity and the cosmos.

An entailment of the infinity mirror, is that conflicts found in the larger communities reflect conflicts within those individuals who are affected by them. An individual at the centre of the infinity mirrors cannot, by direct intervention, change their own reflection in a more distant mirror. That reflection will automatically change only when the person resolves his or her own tendencies and internal conflicts which, in the social context, became amplified - for instance, into Law and into War. The paintings, themselves, are the results of the artist acting out this internal quest.

The lines that connect the series of paintings are fractions of maps, maps of locations that are considered ‘problematic hotspots’, areas that require intervention, protection, communication and many forms of political, economic and humanitarian investment. These are areas where the Open Society Foundations focuses its attention. The paintings take particular areas which exhibit complementary problems such as aggression and victimhood in their direct political and indirect economical and cultural manifestations. Each of the maps is represented by a specific colour. The colours connote healthy behavioural patterns these locations are struggling to integrate based on colour psychology, colour symbolism and the colours of the seven chakras in the human body.

To understand the dynamics of the political forces in these areas, the same forces and patterns have been examined on a personal level. According to the logic of the infinity mirror concept, the personal is the only level from which an individual can gather direct information, learn and act, hence being the only level where changes can be carried out. This reflects a belief that every political structure and tendency one experiences already exists within the individual's psyche and can be only understood and changed by turning inward and finding those patterns. It is a view that creates personal responsibility for social problems, at the same time providing an opportunity to act; to act in ones daily direct encounters. Without this view, attempting to act as a single human being facing a social-scale problem often leads to paralysis or despair.

This personalisation of communities/nations/cultures also allows examining social tendencies with the tools of psychology, proposing the possibility of finding solutions with the knowledge of modern psychotherapy.

Through this process of personalisation we can explore the larger social level - communities / nations / cultures - using the insights of psychology and seeking solutions through the tools of modern psychotherapy. For instance, we might explore how the aggression of nations and factions is mirrored in our interactions with the people we come across in our daily life. Can we expect peace at the scale of a society if we are not acting respectfully on a daily basis with the ones that are closest to us? Similarly, we might see our willingness to tolerate, on a social scale, manipulation and aggression on the part of a government or commercial interests, and yet expect others to respect our personal boundaries.

When asked, “What can we do about the crazy havoc in which we live?” the Dalai Lama said, “Attend to the crazy havoc inside yourself first.” Maybe it is the right time to realise that changes can be initiated inside our own consciousness; they can then be pursued in the outer world.

The infinity mirror concept becomes concrete in the series of paintings: Whilst interacting with the fractures and imperfections of the surface of the painting, sometimes following them sometimes forcing through them, a rhythm of surrender and control is created. The motions of engraving the lines represent the response of the human mind to its surroundings. A process of moment-to-moment relating where every millimetre expands consciousness. It resembles a shamanic ceremony, an open state of mind where every action and every coincidence is considered symbolic. It is a quest to find remedies for those fractures and injuries that exist on all levels of human experience and, in a similarly symbolic manner, to perform corrections. It is a process of discovering those patterns which run across the layers of reflection, as they show up in the process of creation, enabling curative corrections and adjustments that treat the artwork as a voodoo doll.

The Furthest Mirrors; I Am:
My hand is trembling as I proceed inch by inch, slowly, drawing the line on the rough surface. It needs to be imprinted deep into the material, like a riverbed. I bump into an edge with the blunt pencil that transfers the path of the Hungarian border onto the orange painted landscape. I force it to cut through the lump like the border river once did through the rocks. The rougher the surface, the slower and more painful it is to proceed. I am longing for rest, but I want to see it accomplished in its sharp, deep beauty. I want to see its birth. I shake myself and continue. When it is done, I cannot stop wondering at its depth and clarity.”

The dominantly orange colour of this painting represents ‘self-definition’. This is exactly what is needed in a case of borderline personality disorder, a condition that develops when one's own needs and boundaries are not respected during the early period of development, whether this is caused by neglect or abuse. This parallels the situation of a country whose borders have been demarcated by others, or that has repeatedly been invaded throughout its history. An example of this borderline personality disorder, at the national level, is Hungary as illustrated by its reactions to the recent Syrian refugee crisis.

The Furthest Mirrors; Vulnerability:
“This time the pencil is traveling through turquoise waters following the shores of England. The waves create an unpredictable rhythm. It is all so easy; suddenly I bump into an edge that knocks me off my path. I could not see the next wave under the paper. I need to go back and try to ride it again, this time slower and more consciously. Yet it happens once more. I promise myself I will keep it slow even when it is calm. Mistakes are corrected, and the waves get smoother.”

The turquoise colour of this painting symbolises vulnerability, open communication between the heart and the spoken word, that Britain needs to integrate, overcoming the fear that its problems cannot be resolved without aggression or separation. For a healthy being, vulnerability is safe; it means a peaceful way of sharing ones needs, thoughts and feelings without the fear that they won’t be heard. When the cause of borderline personality disorder is neglect/isolation, it manifests in aggressive/invasive behaviour, and the Freudian repetition compulsion, gravitating toward further isolation. This personality cannot integrate the trust that its needs will be met, that it can achieve safety without taking from others in an invasive way. It cannot express its needs peacefully or respectfully because this openness of communication, this vulnerability, does not feel safe for the person. This syndrome manifested on a larger scale during Brexit in Britain and in the recent elections in the United States.

The Furthest Mirrors; Peace:
“Green is like a highway that has no history. I feel it rejects the past. Thin ground, all flat and even. The pencil goes on with rocket speed, driven by the energy accumulated from the previous struggles. I feel like a superhero until realising I am following a totally wrong direction. Due to the pace, I end up miles away from where I wanted to be. Another attempt and another wrong path. This goes on until the initial energies settle into a peaceful flow. I pause and take a deep breath. Reality check. Where is the real path? Now I focus and slow down, regaining control, finally finding my way along the streets of Kiev.”

When a psyche is repeatedly exposed to aggression it can respond in two ways: taking on the tendencies of rebellion or conformity. This aggression can be direct or indirect. Indirect aggression manifests as manipulation. The conformist can be manipulated by an authority figure, as can a rebel who automatically reacts against what they are told to do. Repressed pain, if allowed to accumulate, might burst out in rage toward a perceived aggressor. By definition, manipulation is ‘controlling something or someone to one's own advantage’. This can take various forms: the distortion of facts, creating ambivalence through the use of terms which switch their meaning, unwarranted assumptions of causality, etc, the whole panoply of rhetoric, all of which, at a social level, is amplified through the media.

Green is the symbol of self-compassion, a perspective that can prevent suppressed pain from turning into destructive anger. Self-compassion is a quality the rebel needs, in order to maintain their focus on their own interests, interests which differ from those of their opponents. In this painting, the dominant colour, green, has been paired with the map of Independence Square and its surroundings in Kiev.

The Furthest Mirrors; Strength:
“Yellow is the most alien. I start slow but why? It is all too easy to settle into an even pace, no pain, no hindrances, no highs and lows, an uninterrupted and steady voyage until my mind completely switches off. Only at the end do I realise I missed a turn, left out a part that can never be retrieved. It was a sneaky lullaby that carried me away, took me on a journey to Mexico, traveling atop the train, La Bestia. In the meantime, it has stolen a part of my path. Now I know. I am awake.”

The basic colour of the fourth painting is yellow. Yellow is the symbol of self-esteem that conveys the message: ‘I am enough’ or ‘I have enough’. It is a perspective that can prevent suppressed pain from turning inward against the self. Self-esteem is a quality that the conformist needs, in order to maintain their social and political autonomy against the threats of cultural and economic invasion, that is to say, consumerism. This manipulation leads to economic and financial imbalances where conformists adjust their behaviour, on a personal level, and their economy and culture, on a national level, to the interests of the aggressors.

The line on this painting follows the railway of the ‘Death Train’, La Bestia, on the top of which citizens of South American countries are migrating to North America, despite a high risk they will become victims of human trafficking and abuse.

Gebilde Painters, 3 - 5 March 2017, is curated in response to a Panel Discussion, The Trouble with Painting, which took place at the ICA on the 18 November 2010 with Margarita Gluzberg, Vanessa Jackson, Mark Leckey and Bruce Maclean.

The exhibition is part of ‘First Thursdays’ organised by Whitechapel Gallery.

Let the Dust Settle, 2-6 November 2016, is an exhibition of contemporary artworks that focuses on the participating artist's unique approaches to the exhibition space, exploring metaphorical and physical ideas of Dust.

The Gallery is the Crypt of St Pancras Parish Church that was designed and used for coffin burials from 1822, when the Church was opened, to 1854, and the crypts of all London churches were closed to burials. In both World Wars, the Crypt was also used as an air raid shelter.

This exhibition explores the walls of this history and on the days when other cultures celebrate ‘Dia de Muertos – Day of the Dead and western Christian traditions celebrate ‘All Saints Day’. The idea that a calendar can be marked by birth and death and ideas can illuminate memories and tradition is expanded as the individual artist tackles the confined concepts and ideas around Dust. A Being of mysterious matter lingering around us, stirred by our every gesture, that we consume with every breath and emit with every action. As the well-known Buddhist saying goes: ‘Since dust, there is no void’.

The exhibition consists of artworks utilising a variety of mediums, projection, interactive virtual reality installation, sculptural installation, expanded painting practices, music and performance.

2nd - 6th November: 12:00 - 18:00

Open 21-27 March 2016, BARE HOME is an exhibition featuring a home.

This home is located on 4 floors and 3 landings, connected by a light-well. Its structure uncannily mirrors both the structure of the human body and the mind of its inhabitant.

It incorporates objects, useful and useless, precious and junk, artworks and everyday items and everything in-between.

Some spaces might appear to be familiar and cosy while others seem alien and uncomfortable.

While walking from the well-known to the disturbing and back again, there is a lot of work to be done by the visitor: observe, touch, listen, smell, feel and understand.

You might be BARE you might be HOME.

I have recently completed a commission by Discovery Networks to produce a painting on the 'Great White Wall' in the canteen of their Chiswick office building.

Forgotten, Lost and Buried has been inspired by Discovery Channel’s series ‘Bering Sea Gold’ about deep sea divers extracting gold from the ocean floor and by the artists’ memories and photographic images about underwater landscapes.

It is an interpretation of intimate spaces which are partly hidden, partly revealed, where the revealed parts act as gateways to fantasy leading to a covered and invisible reality, suggesting that there is more to discover, a precious secret or a shocking surprise, exploring the possibilities of the materials by way of covering and exposing layers of paint and metal.

The revealed reflective surfaces of the copper foil booklets work as integrated light sources within the structure of the painting. Copper is a link to childhood memories and represents the idealised past. The foil flakes are arranged in a way that they resemble old books, only open to the extent that it would be impossible to read their content. This provokes a constant longing for being able to have an insight of their pages.

However these books are forgotten, lost, and buried, which became the title of the painting. It is a field of treasures once concealed, now found, or the other way.

The work intends to ambiguously talk to two parallel mental dimensions. On one hand to the optimistic ego by way of its aesthetics and on the other hand to the realistic self with its suffocating ‘forgottenness’. This ambiguity creates a sad nostalgia.

I will be partcicpating in the show White Spirits at the Safe House 1 in March.

Open 16th-20th of March 2015, 12:00-17:00 (except 18th March: 13:00-17:00 & 20th March 12:00-16:00). Safe House 1, 139 Copeland Road, SE15 2SN.

'The State of Art' art books will provide a snapshot that represents current contemporary art practice and will present a selection of artists’ personal portfolios as well as provide details of their artistic practice and illustrate their ability to present ideas in a variety of media or alternative artistic techniques.

Under Pressure has been shortlisted for the ArtGemini Prize 2013. The ArtGemini Prize is a celebration to promote international contemporary art for emerging and established artists around the world. All shortlisted artists will be invited to show their works at the exhibition at the Rebecca Hossack Gallery, Conway Street, London, in January 2014.

I'm pleased to confirm that Excavation has been selected by the panel of judges for the Wells Art Contemporary Open Exhibition 2013.

By far one of the most exhilarating aspects of the Cork Street Open Exhibitions is the surprising synergy and cohesive feel of unity that is achieved in spite of the extremely diverse and eclectic collection of artwork presented in a wide range of mediums.

A selection panel of five jurors viewed nearly 2,000 submissions, distilling the entries to just under 200 artworks. Everything the jury selects after a stringent 2 stage judging process, whether iPad paintings, egg tempera landscapes, resin sculptures or large format photographs is then hung together in harmony, offering visitors an exciting visual symphony.

Not only is the artwork diverse, the experience and reputation of the artists is equally varied providing an opportunity for collectors to purchase art ranging from £110 to over £10,000. A wire mesh sculpture by the well-established David Begbie, may cast its velvet shadow beside the painting of a debuting young artist or an emerging octogenarian.

The first Cork Street Open Exhibition was launched six years ago. The mission was two fold, to give emerging and established artists worldwide a platform for showing their work in the heart of Londons art dealing centre and to raise funds for charity.

There has never been a theme for the August Cork Street Open Exhibition; other than the literal interpretation of contemporary of this time. Artists were able to submit up to 6 entries as long as they were created within the past 18 months.

I am delighted to announce that my works Time for this, Under Pressure, Another way to let go, Let me see and Excavation have been selected by the panel of judges and excited to be part of the final Cork Street Open Exhibition.

Exhibition runs 9th - 16th August 2013 Daily from 10-6.
