I’ve been spending the last two days cutting out flowers for a private commission. It’s going to be very colourful!

I’ve just finished this commission for a private client and I thought I’d share it with you. Photographs have been taken at Kew Garden and the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show, these have then been lovingly cut out and reassembled to create my own hybrid plants. At some point this will be published as a poster, I will let you know just as soon as it’s available.
I was commissioned by Crawley Borough Council in 2006 to produce three artworks based on sporting activities in Crawley. This was my first ever Public Art Commission and I really enjoyed working on the project. The works are now housed in the K2 Leisure Centre, Crawley in the bar area.
‘Red, Yellow, Green and Blue’ involved photographing Crawley Town Football Club at two separate home games against Worcester City and Morecombe FC.
‘K2 Climb’ depicts several climbing sessions at K2. The climbing wall was chosen for the colourful patterns already created by the multi-coloured climbing holds.
‘Elastica’ involved photographing Hawth Gymnastics Club, where the girls were asked to adopt various gymnastic poses. These images were mirrored and repeated.
All measure 1m x 1m.
Red, Yellow, Green and Blue
I was commissioned by Mondrian in 2006/07 to produce four artworks for their office reception in Gresham Street, London.
Mondrian are an investment company with offices in London and Philadelphia.
The project involved photographing historical and modernist architecture in both cities.
In London, their offices are housed in a building designed by the architect Sir Norman Foster and in Philadelphia the architect IM Pei.
I loved Philadelphia as a city and it was interesting that architecturally it was extremely similar to The Big Smoke.
Images 1 and 2 are of London and 3 and 4 Philadelphia.
They measure approximately 1m x 1m.
