Each week we will experiment with a different pastel support for soft pastels. With such a variety of coloured and textured papers for pastel available, it can be hard to choose. This course will enable you to try a variety of papers and how to prepare some of your own surfaces.

In this exhibition, the artist presents paintings that explore choice, decision and chance as a metaphor for the process of living in a modern, complex world.
The aim is to make enigmatic, poetically powerful, contemplative objects expressing a sense of the continual struggle between necessary order and desirable anarchy.
