'Paper Heads' in Berlin


I dreamed that the last of the pieces from a collection I have finished would have a send off in Berlin.

Recently, I removed the collection 'Paper Heads', from my website, as I am working on new collections and although I and many people have had so much fun with these pieces- it was time to move on for other things.

But they were not leaving without a bang!

And what a great way to say 'Goodbye Paper Heads' than wonderful Berlin, in their own tiny little exhibition of only FIVE pieces.

Just for a bit of fun, and to raise a glass and say 'Prost' to the paintings that gave so much joy online, all over the world and with their showings in Scotland and Ireland.

The 'Paper Head' series was originally commissioned by a gallery in the Scottish Boarders in 2012, after one of the paintings, the first, catched the eye of the gallery owner and his wife, and they wanted many more like it!

So they had an exhibition and many more followed, I think perhaps around 23 in total.

But one can only do so much or the same type of thing, and, as my work progressed, I needed to paint other things. These were, after all, paintings that were asked of me,  and my life was moving in other directions.
I need to paint how I see and feel.

But so much work and research, and painstaking detail went into this work, and now I am SO very happy to present them in Berlin for the final goodbye.

Cant wait!

The exhibition 'Paper Heads' begins at 8 pm at Irish Berlin, Gr. Hamburger Str. 36A, 10115 Berlin-Mitte, Germany.
