In A Silent Way at Volta 12 Basel Switzerland

June 13-18, 2016
Markthalle, Basel

In A Silent Way was a collaboration between myself and Anders Knutsson, who is also represented by the Knight Webb gallery.

Anders is Swedish, but lives in Brooklyn, New York. He is a well known painter and his monochrome pictures hang in many museums and major collections across the world. We are both jazz fans and named the show after Miles Davis’ album In A Silent Way – feeling the title said much about the way we both work. In this seminal album Miles fused together jazz and rock and with our show we too wanted to blend our two very different practises.

The show originally took place at the Knight Webb gallery, south London in 2015 and this year will be held again at the art fair, Volta 12 in Basel, Switzerland.

London Art Fair 2016

The Knight Webb gallery has a stand every year at the London Art fair in Islington.

Art fairs are where galleries do most of their business and like artists applying to get into group shows galleries generally have to apply to be in an art fair. It’s also required that participants pay a large fee to participate in the fair.

Art Cologne opened in 1967 as a trade fair for classic modern and contemporary art, and the first American art fair was in 1976 in Washington. They’ve sprung up all over the world since then and are now an integral part of the art market.
I enjoy the London Art fair, it’s interesting to see all the galleries strutting their stuff and there is work by some amazing artists.

You can see a short film showing the pieces of mine that Rufus showed this year, for the longer film of the Knight Web gallery at the London Art fair here.

Human Nature

Human Nature is an art platform artists whose work has a strong connection to the environment.  Started by Charlotte Webster in 2014,  Human Nature opened with a group show in Hoxton, London.  It went on the Bristol and Leeds and came back to London with another show in Soho.

As an artist who works with only recycled materials I’ve been lucky enough to be included in all of these shows. It’s been really enjoyable and Ive met some great people.
