With Mark Borghi at his gallery, Mark Borghi Fine Art in Bridgehampton, Long Island where I have been invited to show in October.
The painting between us is by Willem De Kooning, and you can see Elaine de Kooning’s painting, ‘Ballpark’ behind Mark. Their current show is ‘Compendium’
Also in this show, paintings by Kenneth Noland, Helen Frankenthaler, Robert Motherwell, Hans Hoffman as well as works by Alexander Calder and John Chamberlain and much more
It was a real pleasure to meet Mark and also Lucy Gong. I am staying in New York City for a month and also visiting his other gallery there where the solo show for Alyssa di Edwardo opens on 12th September. While I am over here I will be working with gallery manager Katherine Gagnon to prepare for my show, and helping her oversee the preparation of my paintings arriving from Ireland, including 4 large pieces that are being stretched locally
More details later. My show, ‘Voyage’ will open at MBFA in Bridgehampton on 20th October and run till end of November

I had a fabulous, very short trip to Manhattan in July 2016. I had such a good time, and I want to go back for more! I’m hoping to go for nearly a month this Autumn. To see the ‘fall’ colours, to visit more contemporary galleries in Chelsea, and hopefully to paint, if I can find some studio space!
Here are some photos of street views and some favourite works I saw in galleries on my last trip, and a few of the paintings of mine that came out of it
Matisse and Degas
The High Line, diptych, each canvas 80cm sq, private collection
5th Avenue, small oil sketch in paper made ‘on the road’
Homage, one of a pair of 80cm canvases, available through http://www.velveteasel.co.uk
