UK Group Show - 'Extreme Imagination'
I'm very excited to announce that two pieces (one drawing pre-stroke and one painting post stroke) will be in a group exhibition entitled 'Extreme Imagination' in the UK. This will be a first for showing in the United Kingdom. The show will open Sainsbury Centre for the Visual Arts, Norwich England (November 2018 – January 2019 tbc), January 11th, 2019, at Tramway, Glasgow, and then travel to the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter, in March.
Working with neurologist Dr. Adam Zeman has been life changing. Participating in Adam's research on Aphantasia and receiving his support and guidance has drastically improved comprehension in what is going on in my brain.
Being one of 20 invited to participate in this exhibition is a huge honour and privilege.
