RCA Show

So after a nerve wracking 2 days hanging my show with my brother, it is up, and open to the public. The largest part of it is my finished Giant Squid mural. It uses a gently curved tile shape suggestive of the beautiful glashas bs specimen jars that I saw in the Natural History Museum Darwin Wing. My squid shows a free, more fragmented version. Hopefully vivid and slightly scary! It got a lovely mention on NOTCOT - where this photo is from. My show is open until Sunday evening, but closed on Friday 29th June for the convocation ceremony in the Albert Hall. More detailed photos of my show will most definitely follow soon.
My brother Peter kindly took a day off work as a bookbinder ( come and help hang my show, it would have been SO stressful if he hadn't been there. This is Peter with the paper template we used to work out which tile was which! The final piece was slightly larger than I'd realized, so there was only just enough wall space.
