Eastern International Art College, Zhengzhou – 郑州轻工业学院易斯顿国际美术学院

Client: Self 客户:自己
I was invited to this college as a visiting artist. Lecturing to a packed house of 280 students, I led a workshop and hung out with the students for two days. Some local business men had commissioned the sculpture department to make them a bull. Time to inspect the clay model.  There is a gallery
here. I'm looking for publications who might be interested in the work.

I was asked to curate the Winter stockroom show. I chose to explore the notion of what is it like to live in China. I did this by using the art made by the Chinese artists, and picking themes and images that suited my lived experience. The exhibition has been written up in City Weekend, TimeOut Beijing and China Pictorial. 

我有幸被邀请策划一次库存艺术品的冬季展览。我选择了探索在中国生活的真谛作为展览内容。我采用了中国艺术家的作品,并挑选符合我的生活经验的主题和画作。这次展览已经在City weekend, TimeOut Beijing China Pictorial上做了报导。

Argyle Hotel, Shanghai Airport – 上海华港雅阁酒店



Client: Argyle Hotels 客户:东川至和
The Argyle Hotel group work continued with the old Shanghai airport hotel. Included above are two of the more unusual photographs. I mostly shot rooms. One staff member both looked and acted like a young Chinese Mr Spoke. We taught him to stay 'that is highly illogical' In the second photo, the tailor's assistant in his rather wonderful room made for a great portrait.
