This evening, the 21st November, sees the opening of XL, the 40th Anniversary Exhibition of Peacock Visual Arts, Aberdeen. I have had the pleasure to work with the wonderful folk there since 2011, producing a number of my recent works in the studio. For the exhibition they have again been very generous, commissioning me to make a new piece to celebrate their birthday. The brief was to use the facilities at Make Aberdeen, Peacock's Digital Studio, to create a sculptural work. The result is pictured above, a cut perspex and wood boat. Entitled Proposal For A Boat, the work sits 27 x 29 x 20 cm, is an edition of 40 and will be sold for £200. I look forward to working with Peacock for the next 40 years!

After the success of the Jealous Gallery exhibition and our recent commission for the Heal's Spring Summer 2015 collection, Danny and I have put together a website for our collaboration work. The site will feature news and images as projects take shape, so please take a look over the coming few months.
