To London. In part to visit Bermonsey Art Space, where we'll be showing a selection of paintings by Dave Pearson in April, including a number of the large multi-paneled pieces from the 'Byzantium' series (one, 'The Cafe' above - note where the panel illustrated in my last blog sits, bottom right) which he worked on during the 1990s. Also to discuss a way of selling Dave's work should any interest arise from the London show. I'm also using the opportunity of this being the week of the International Mime Festival to catch a couple of shows, as well as visiting the Anselm Kiefer at the White Cube across the way from BAS.
I met Margaret Mytton at the weekend and we decided on a designer for the exhibition catalogue, and yesterday evening I went to Dave's old studio at 54 Manchester Road, and met Julian Williams, who has been doing a heroic job moving (single-handedly) Dave's larger pieces around the building so they are now arranged series by series, so selection for the exhibition in London will now be a much easier task.
