SPRING at THE PAXTON CENTRE

Some may have seen the ( unwatermarked) Giclee prints of these at Beckenham Mansion (one is permantly hanging in the cafe in the basement) at our open studio days.

But I have been invited to show my work at The Paxton Centre , this month.

Binary

The original prints are very different to these watermarked on screen impressions, but more important is the environment and ambience of the art cafe – which enhances the intentions, when I created this series, that I called ‘Cogitation’.

Contemplating our human condition and encouraging the mindfull state of mind we expereince for instance; when viewing art.

This weekend (27th of April 2019) coming, Crystal Palaces Artists are opening their doors for the weekend.

So why not come out and ponder over Art at OPEN STUDIOS in Crystal Palace 

and ponder of what you see and how you feel.

city

Get out in this city of ours and discover what is around you and how you feel within.

You never know what beauty you may find in things you may not have considered worth a second look – or just thinking about it.

I will be out and about to in Crystal Palace this weekend:  probably sipping a coffee at the Paxton Centre, whilst pondering and processing impression and things I rest my eyes upon or seeking inspiration of all those other talents around us. Having a sneak behind the scenes of those artists in Crystal Palace.

Get in touch over social media , happy to share impressions and views and listen to yours.

These paintings of mine are available as  Giclee Prints (beautiful pigment sprayed on thick paper),

framed and ready to adorn your walls, at the Paxton Centre. All of my work will come down next week, so get out there and get a piece of art to ponder over.

Happy spring and new beginnings to you all.

Timed with the Fashion week in London this week, (well the last two days) I am pondering over fashion and last weeks #lookbook shoot with award winning:

As much as I care about people and the person that they truly are; I find it more and more of an expression of that – looking at what we wear. Well just enhancing your natural *you* of course. 😉

It was great making use of #studiomansionhouse and all it’s potential, that is to be found at  Beckenham Mansion, my current creative home. Here a little look behind the scenes.

Such a pleasure to be picturing all these suits, of a very talented up and coming bespoke designer.

Love a good suit or two 😉 …and we had 20 of them.

Am a very lucky and happy #photographer.

Portfolio 2016 part 2

Having reflected and pondered over 2016 , here a selection of images I posted on FB for my 21 day countdown to the new year… keen to do better and bigger this year , and oh my good there are some exciting projects in the pipeline.

kwame

…and those location shoots with a little more of a story and a hint of acting -images beyond the surface itself… Well I am certain to build on that this year.

location-2

Forever refining the balance of luck, observation, people, light,location, story … to find just that moment:

so fleeting that it is gone before it’s existence could be fully appreciated- but yet captured with one single click.

However the #indian #wedding must have been one of the bigger highlights that

the brash colorful challenge provided me!

…stay tuned. 2017 here we come! 🙂
