Two of my pastiche photographs were selected to hang at this year’s Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. All profits from this exhibition go to fund the Royal Academy Schools which run free postgraduate courses for exceptionally talented artists.
They were both hung in the main gallery coordinated by Grayson Perry. The walls were bright yellow and all the other artwork was fun and vibrant. The Moaning Geezer is on the left and Klimt in the Care Home top right.
Grayson Perry had a fabulous vase in the show called “Stupid white thing” (working titles have a habit of sticking - I learned that in my BBC days). I love making ceramics myself so used the same methods he uses to make a commemorative plate in decorated earthenware. I have called it “Grayson’s Stupid Yellow Thing”.
The name Grayson BTW is a complete coincidence we are not related despite both having been brought up in Essex and enjoying art that is FUN!!!
A collection of my pastiche work is still on permanent display at the Artizan Gallery, Lucius Street, Torquay.
