Revised Website Now Live
I have just put my revised website live. The design is simple and there are selected new mixed media works for the Sharpenhoe Series and Lake Garda Series. It is at http://www.nicholasherbert-drawings.co.uk I hope it will be seen as an improvement and easier to navigate! Thank you to all who follow me and support my work. I appreciate it very much. Best, Nicholas.
Some images of the gallery yesterday almost ready.
Although not absolutely ready, I took these images of my ‘Silent Spaces’ show yesterday. The gallery really suits my small intimate mixed media landscapes and I feel privileged to have been offered this exhibition by Alan Kluckow Fine Art.
The main entrance space has a short run of three pieces, then to the right is a run of 9 works towards the back of the gallery.
The exhibition catalogues are on a central table and on shelves at the back wall.
The show has been curated and hung by Alan Kluckow. I got to see my work completely afresh when I walked into the gallery space and saw the hang for the first time.
This run of three can be seen from right up the approach to the gallery, they are the only works in the whole of the front space. The main glazing is on the right and opposite some way away is the main doorway structure. (see previous post).
To the left of the main doorway, is this run of six pieces, with a grouping of four on the returning wall. There are then two vertical pieces just around the corner.
I will be at the show off and on showing people around until May 10th. If you do come, please do say hello. I would love to meet you. Sunningdale is just off the M25 and there is lots of inexpensive parking nearby. The final image below is a bit lower resolution than the others, but it shows the view of the group of three from the door.
Recent Portrait (2016) for Exhibition Catalogue
As I needed a new up-to-date portrait for the exhibition catalogue’s artist biography, Annie and I decided to go to a place near Bison Hill, as I make some pieces from this position. Annie took this image of me working on a new mixed media piece on an iPad. I like the mix of diagonals made by the tree and the incline. I have attached a landscape (L891, Near Bison Hill, The Chiltern Hills) made from near this spot late last year and which is being exhibited in my show ‘Silent Spaces’ at Alan Kluckow Fine Art. It was a very cold and ferociously windy day when I started making this. The noise the wind made as it blew up and across the escarpment was almost deafening and so constant that it made working very difficult. It is easy to forget when one looks at work in a gallery or studio, that the one element that is not present is the audible sound of the place itself. My show is called Silent Spaces for many reasons…….

New Home Page for Duration of Exhibition
My landing page at nicholasherbert-drawings.co.uk has details of my solo show at Alan Kluckow Fine Art, Sunningdale, on the home page for the duration of the exhibition until May 10th. I am showing twenty-six mixed-media landscapes from 2013-2015. There will be a free online exhibition catalogue available on iBooks in a week or two. The link on the home page currently leads to a downloadable Pdf version. This is best viewed as two pages up together. There will be a case-bound book version of the catalogue at the gallery.
