I'm ecstatic to announce that I will be kicking off The Antheneum's "Art at the Atheneum" with my first solo exhibition in Aberdeen entitled "Numerology". The show is comprised of a selection of new works based around the magpie.

Surrounded by myth, superstition and misconception, the magpie is a bird of complex symbolic and folkloric origin. From the trade-mark trinket laden nest to their ominous numerically fateful flocks, the monochromatic magpie is a bird both maligned and revered throughout the western and eastern worlds. Combining their fierce intelligence with a covetous nature, the magpie is as diverse and intriguing as the objects that litter its nest, and has consequently provided a rich and fascinating research base for “Numerology”.

Really excited to see some new work and hopefully meet the authors of some work I have been admiring!
