WEEK 24 Scoop

Scoop -TC oil on canvas 80x 60cm Niamh Cunningham/瑞莲 2010

A portrait will be posted every week (usually Sunday afternoon) on this website home page throughout the year of 2019. Some are of young Chinese learners whom I used to teach in my early years in China, some are of family and friends, others are of artists and curators with whom I have worked over the years here in China. This portrait of Emily who has represented my work over the years in different projects was cast as Mrs Sheehy a character in a chapter of the book Ulysses. This was recently exhibited as part of my installation ‘Wandering Rocks’ at ‘Odyssey – The Return’ in April 2019, Beijing .
