Letting in the light. / 1 February 2016

Letting in the light.

I am well chuffed that my piece Bats in the Belfry was selected for the Letting in the Light Exhibition now showing in Stratford, London. Bobby Baker's Daily Life Ltd has teamed up with Outside In and Bethlem Gallery to showcase work by 35 artists with personal experience of mental health issues. I love that the exhibition took its name from the Groucho Marks great line: Blessed is the cracked, for they shall let in the light.

The video below was made by my son Finn who attended the opening in my place, had a photo taken with Bobbie Baker and drank my share of the wine. Nice one Finn.

Exhibition continues until March 24th.
