Rhubarb-Rhubarb, the UK’s International Portfolio Review event, took place at the Aston Business School in Birmingham from 31st July – 3rd August. I’ve worked at Rhubarb for a number of years now, but this event was different for me. I was showing my portfolio for the first time proper. Although daunting at first, it became informative, and on reflection was an invaluable experience. I got some encouraging, informative and interesting feedback on my projects. I knew I was going in the right direction, but to have my convictions confirmed by experts in the field really vindicates the belief I hold in what I do.
I’d like to thank all those reviewers who reviewed my portfolio; Thomas Kellner, Moritz Neumuller, Bill Kouwenhoven, Jim Casper, Peg Amison, Sian Bonnell, Chris Rauschenberg, Karol Hordziej, Katy Barron and Kate Pryor-Williams.
I’m having a solo exhibition at Wolverhampton’s Light House in 2009. Date to be confirmed. I’m also in talks with Wolverhampton Art Gallery about collaborating on a possible exhibition opportunity.
