As part of the 'Y' Theatre's 14/ 48 Theatre Festival in Leicester towards the end of May, I was invited to exhibit a selection of my work, mainly abstract and semi-abstract. The festival mixes a variety of artistic forms, from theatre and music to fine art, promoting artistic and creative freedom and cross-fertilisation. From this brief, came a new abstract work from me, Hope, symbolic at both an individual and a collective level. This new work forms part of my ongoing series, Contemplations on Darkness and Light, which already includes images such as Blue Planet, Orange Light and Skal.

The 14/ 48 Theatre Festival itself takes place on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th May, 2013. Originating in Seattle, USA, the festival at The Y Theatre in Leicester promises to be an improvised, spontaneous alchemy of theatrical creativity and performance. Throwing together a range of actors, directors, scriptwriters, musicians and other crew, both from Seattle, Leicester and elsewhere, they will have 24 hours to create and deliver 7 plays to a live audience. On the second day, the process starts again, with the creation of 7 new plays, performed to the second night's audiences.
Not only was I delighted to be asked to exhibit my work as part of this festival, I look forward to being around that weekend to record these creative improvisational sparks.
