In mid-2016, I was asked by Italian curator and art mentor, Stefania Carrozzini, to participate in several group exhibitions in New York, Milan and London in late 2016 and early 2017. She was particularly interested in the series of paintings I had done in the 1980s – Children’s Games and Daze of our Lives. Carrozzini asked if I would consider a return to that theme, which fitted her concept for exhibitions entitled Moments of Truth (New York and Milan) and Nothing Is As it Seems (London). In her catalogue essay for the “Moments of Truth” exhibition, Carrozzini states:
This exhibition wishes to make us reflect upon the moment of inspiration, that fleeting moment of the here and now, where all seems possible, where the imagination knows no bounds and opens up to infinite creative possibilities.
The art of young children particularly fascinates me. They are not restricted by learnt conventions, but are free to express their feelings and observations of the world around them. Sometimes that world is imaginary - or at least, only they can see it! I love the naïve images and carefree superimposition of scenarios – anything is possible in a child’s world.
