Apologies to Lennon and McCartney for the post title. But here I am (warning contains close up photo of artist looking.. um well I'm not sure really I was just trying to avoid the 'Gordon Brown smiles' effect) http://www.thisisdevon.co.uk/Exhibition-inspired-determination-Blitz-hit-city/story-15838613-detail/story.html
Just a quick one to announce that 'RESURGAM' was safely installed at St Andrew's on Friday (13th!!!) and that the press launch is Monday at 11.00am. Come along if you're interested. I'll be there being sociable and trying to think of soundbites for the assembled multitudes of the fourth estate (assuming they turn up). 'RESURGAM' is being shown at the west end of the church at the foot of the tower and there will be postcards and suchlike. If you're too cheap to pay for a postcard there are 8" x 4" rack cards/flyers scattered all over town (last Friday's other job), try the City Museum and Art Gallery, Central Library, Plymouth Arts Centre, Tourist Information office and pretty well all the galleries in the Barbican if you want one of these rare (ie. I've given them all out), limited editions (I could only afford to get 100 printed). Here's a view of the painting as installed in the church (on it's own custom built easel no less!).
It's in extremely good company as the west end of the church is also home to one of John Piper's magnificent windows. I don't feel overawed at all!
Work in progress and other stuff that happens.
