From 1-8 August 2019 I had my first solo exhibition in the Chapel of King’s College, Cambridge. In this grand setting, some of my recent ink wash paintings in the Chinese tradition were displayed on 24 easels as part of the Fifth Cambridge Xu Zhimo Festival of Poetry and Arts. Xu Zhimo (1897-1931) was a Chinese poet who studied at King’s College, 1921-22; he wrote a poem called ‘A Second Farewell to Cambridge’ which has since been learned by heart by every Chinese school child.
Also as part of the Fifth Cambridge Xu Zhimo Festival of Poetry and Arts, I held a further solo exhibition in King’s College Art Room from 11-16 August where more of my ink wash paintings and some of my prints were displayed. I self-published a small brochure (with the assistance of Shaun Betson of University of Cambridge Reprographics Centre) to explain more about my paintings.
Further information is in an anthology of my work, A Journey Eastwards: Reflections on Chinese Ink and Watercolour Paintings, which was published in 2018 by Cam Rivers Publishing.
