A very spontaneous and impromptu idea led to this little diorama that I made for the Love Love end of year show. The title of the work was taken from René Daumal's novel Mount Analogue. Sometimes I dream in neon, and sometimes my dreams and reality find a way to cross paths.
This year I was again fortunate enough to work with the ever inspiring Anna Spiro of Black & Spiro. She does the most visionary and spectacular Christmas windows and this year's windows did not disappoint! To coincide with the opening of the wonderfully talented artist Pip Boydell's debut exhibition and to launch the Black & Spiro Christmas windows, I created one very large and colouful chandelier to hang in the store above one very large and lovely table. The shop looked amazing and the one thing that has really stayed with me from the opening night was the beautiful waft of flowers and candles, it was bursting with Spring! I have to say, Anna really does have a magical way of bringing out the best in me! Thank you xx
