am puzzled that when it comes to open submissions for art exhibitions/competitions there seems to be a development that says you pay your money to submit, and because there is such a large volume of submissions we can’t get back to you unless you are successful. It would seem the ‘cooler’ the show, Whitechapel London Open and John Moore’s the more it seems to be the case. So for the former there is this vague mention of 6 weeks of closing date if you haven’t heard…..but we pay significant sums of money, the RA Summer Show with huge volumes of submmisions and Lynn Painter-Stainers still sends out a letter to all……so why no consistency and is this a disrespectful move or just a moan?
just had a call from the gallery to say that I’ve been successfull in the Lynn Painters-Stainers Prize 2012 here in London with this painting….more later
Le Corbusier,s build in Briey France…..surrounded by trees….decided to paint an image of it as seen through foliage…the grid od the building against the chaos of leaves….one problem I’ve created for myself to solve….to depict the trees and to locate the building in the spaces remaining……reverse how it might ordinarily be painted…..getting closer to finish, but tomorrow will be make or break day for it’s success or failure…can’t wait
Painting, Architects and exhibitions have all been the story of the week…..well so much has happened since the last posting. It’s almost as though I’m about starting this off again, but too much has happened and too much has been good… though at the moment it feels like holding the line…..so many things I thought were in place as a bridge to the events of next year that were to happen have been delayed…. an exhibition in Mayfair has become a casualty to the whim of the proprietor. and has been put on hold to maybe later in the year. It’s been a maintain self-belief and to stay patient period of time…or is it just the cold in studio and grey light of winter????
Having a go at this again. So much has happened since the last piece. For now, just an invitation to all readers to come along to the Threadneedle Prize 2011, opening on Thursday.
