March 2021: A recording of the opening night event for my online exhibition CROW & HANDS: RECENT WORK can be seen on my YouTube channel. It lasts 1 hour and includes a Q & A conducted by Chicago-based artist/curator Joanne Aono.
October 2020: I gave a 1 hour artist's talk as part of my online exhibition at West Shore Community College, Michigan
Beginning in 2019, I began work on a new series of oil paintings, where I take the coal-mining imagery and develop the elements slightly differently. The crow and the hands reaching out to them evoke memories of birds on rooftops during rainstorms, my grandfather hunting animals at night on the moorlands of Northumberland, a fallen man in a coalmine reaching up for help.
