I believe that art should be likeable and meaningful. Ideally it should change people's view of the world, for the better.
I shall be exhibiting works that explore the themes which proved popular at my AAH debut in 2018.
I'll also be showing new ideas which I've been developing since starting my MFA course at Wimbledon College of Arts in October.
The studio is on the ground floor.
Access is via the side passage door to the right of the front door directly beyond the AAH / Horton & Garton sign board. Please go down the path to the back garden where you can see 'Echo & Narcissus' before entering the house.
Our house is more or less an equidistant five minutes’ walk from two tube stations on the District Line. If travelling West-bound from central London, sit in the second carriage from the rear of the train and get off at Stamford Brook. Having passed through the ticket barriers, turn hard right, to leave by the back entrance, rather than going straight ahead to the main entrance in Goldhawk Road. Follow the wide pedestrian walkway running beside the railway arches. It’s called Wilson’s Walk and can be seen here: https://tfl.gov.uk/tube/stop/940GZZLUSFB/stamford-brook-underground-station
After about 200 yards, cross Prebend Gardens (beware fast cars coming under the bridge from the right) and continue along the arches for another 200 yards and then turn sharp right around the corner. Go diagonally across the car park, right through the exit and then bear left immediately through the row of bollards into Flanders Road. The first right is Gainsborough Road and we’re halfway along on the left.
If travelling East-bound, then Turnham Green tube on the District Line is one stop nearer. It too is about five minutes’ walk. Exit the station and turn right and right again into the Bath Road with the church and bus stop on the other side of the road on your left. Walk all the way along Bath Road and Gainsborough Road is the penultimate turning on the right before the church and traffic lights by Emlyn Road. Alternatively, and for a more attractive walk taking the same time, go along the Bath Road past the Tabard pub, and then first right along Flanders Road which curves left and runs parallel to Bath Road behind the Arts Ed building. Gainsborough Road is the final turning on the left.
The 94 bus stop on the Bath Road by Abinger Road is 1 minute North of 17 Gainsborough Road. The 94 starts at Acton Green and goes all the way to Piccadilly via Goldhawk Road, Shepherd’s Bush, Holland Park Avenue, Bayswater Road, Lancaster gate, Marble Arch and Oxford Street. So you can pick up the Hammersmith & City/Circle line at Goldhawk Road, and Central line at Shepherd’s Bush en route.
The bus stop referred to as ‘Young’s Corner’ is 5 minutes’ walk via back alley (see directions above) to Prebend Gardens and right to on Chiswick High Road. There are a pair of bus stops serve the following routes: 27, 190, 237, 267, 391, H91, N9, and N11 - see links below. The 237 goes to Westfield at Shepherd’s Bush via Goldhawk Road and so the Hammersmith & City/Circle, and Central lines can be reached easily. The 27 goes via Hammersmith to High Street Kensington, to Notting Hill Gate, and then on to Paddington, Baker Street, Harley Street and Great Portland Street.
For day time there’s a few pay and display parking spaces near the junction of Gainsborough Road and the Bath Road.
Between 6.30pm and 9.00am there’s usually spaces on single yellow lines and in resident’s parking in Gainsborough Road. Traffic Wardens visit often…
For longer term visits there’s a big pay and display car park at the end of Welstead Way, which is the turning just before Gainsborough Road. This is the car park you walk through when taking the short cut to and from Stamford Brook tube: http://en.parkopedia.co.uk/parking/carpark/bath_road/w4/chiswick/
