Submission - Royal Academy Summer Exhibition
4th March 2018
For a few years now I have been a friend of the Royal Academy of Arts in Piccadilly, London. I love the layout of the space and I think that the quality of the exhibitions is always great in comparison to other galleries I have been to.
My favourite exhibition of the year is the Summer Exhibition where thousands of emerging and established artists show their paintings, sculptures and architectural works. There is such a variety of work on show in many mediums and styles so I am always inspired and impressed by some of the work on show.
This year I have submitted two works to the show and I should be hearing back on the 15th of March whether my submissions will be sent for the second round of judging.
Both paintings measure 100cm x 100cm and are made using cracked clay and acrylic paint over a stretched cotton canvas. The first painting, Misty Woods, uses a combination of green and silver paints and the second, Royal Sea, uses a combination of purple, blues and golds.
