The first Thursday of the month is a traditional time for gallery show openings. While considering this date for our exhibition, our internationally-diverse group of artists began to discuss the symbolic representations across cultures for the days of the week. In the Asian culture, Thursdays are represented by the symbol of a tree. In Western culture, the tree is a symbol for knowledge. We all agreed that as art students, we are in pursuit of knowledge. Then the discussion got less intense, and we agreed to call this show Thirst Fursdays!
I'm pleased to announce that i have been accepted onto the Fine Art Masters at Chelsea College of Art starting in October 2018. This has been a long term goal for myself to finally afford the space, time and money and shear genius to be accepted on such a prestigious course. I have spent the greater part of my Artistic career living in London but after being rejected by the Royal College of Arts in around 2007, I almost gave up hope of ever being able to progress to such an institution. Now I will gracefully join the ranks of Artist's including David Hockney, Richard Deakon, Patrick Caulfield, Elazabeth Fink, Anthony Caro, Franko B, Anish Kapoor, Helen Chadwick, Rebbeca Warren, Gillian Wearing and of course Dirk Bogard ! Name dropping aside the chance to study and work with a new generation of Artists and my contemporaries next to Tate Britain and further develop and expand my practice to a wider audience will be a life changing and challenging year ! I can't wait !
