EATING THE ELEPHANT

Many months ago, in fact, many years ago, I spoke about dealing with work loads is like eating an elephant, which you can’t eat all at one go, but bit by bit. It has taken me a long time to do enough artwork in order to put an exhibition together, but at last I have managed to do so. Somehow, by pure co-incidence not one, but two elephants appeared in my work and they look really happy.

After a bit of digging and delving I discovered that elephants are considered to be mythic characters. They are symbols of strength and power and in India they lead processions and carry kings and queens on their backs.

My elephants, however, are balancing precariously on tables in the circus.

I hope that you will be able to join us for a glass of wine at the opening of  my exhibition “FOUR’ on the 9th June, Friday, at 6 pm
