New drawing show opens in Soho

I have a few works in a new small show of drawings and digital prints at Timberyard Soho, which continues into the spring of 2017. Here I am with fellow exhibitors Nick Richards, Isabel Carmona, Jo Dungey and Isabelle Laliberté.
Timberyard Soho (it has won so many awards it's impossible to list them all here) is at 4 Noel Street, London W1F 8GB, close to Brewer Street and Oxford Street. Our thanks to Darren and his great team at Timberyard for inviting us to show again. Works are for sale.

Search by Image

Inspired by Sebasian Schmieg's exhibition Search by Image at the Photographers' Gallery, London (until 29 January 2017), I've been doing image searches for some of my drawings. (Schmieg's show uses speeded up Google image searches so that visually similar views are shown almost as videos, merging and flipping through themes.) My own more laborious process threw up intriguing similarities such as these. Find Search by Image here. Have a go.

New construction work in Shoe Lane, London:

And its most visually similar images, are below.

And here's Woodberry Wetlands wildlife reserve in north London:

...and a sample of its most similar images found through Google's Search by Image.
Let's hear it for algorithms and metadata.
