Styal Lodge Exhibition

It is that time of year again and with a break from tradition At The Edge are holding their annual show at the very new Styal Lodge at Styal Golf Course. With the usual eclectic mix of exhibitors there will be something for everyone. So cast off the combined gloom of depressed Britain and our soggy weather and feed your creative soul. Cakes and sundaes always make me feel better, perhaps thats why I paint them so often.

New Paintings

Here are three new paintings around the theme of animal welfare and especially the freedom food guidlines for stocking densities and care of livestock. The paintings are a metre square and reflect the amount of space each animal is afforded in current welfare documentation. The amount of ducks you can have is dependent on how good your grass is. The duck with the shower( homage a Bacon) is about ducks needing to cover themselves in water for proper preening. When rabbits are farmed they are given a A4 sized space each. These three paintings are the begining of a series of new work.
