Memory and Muchness

1st Place winner in the Dulwich Picture Gallery 'Age of Enchantment' fairytale illustration competition. Judged by the curator of the exhibition, author and art dealer Rodney Engen, who had the following to say about 'Memory and Muchness', the winning image:

"Imbued with the dense, brooding atmosphere of lost innocence and the remembered childish delights of nursery and playground, there is a haunting sophistication to its composition which lifts the subject beyond the obvious. Even the melancholic title suggests a bitter sweetness and makes this a quite remarkable work by any standards."
