From the 14th to the 18th of December 2017, I had a pleasure to exhibit in a collective at Exhibit Here Art's Maze at Bargehouse.
The beautiful gallery is located at the bottom of the Oxo Tower Wharf and it is known for its photography, contemporary design, architecture and issue-based exhibitions.
Exhibit Here is an Online Art Gallery and Curator of Pop-up exhibitions across London, founded by fine artist Leila Bibizadeh in 2013 who works tirelessly to provide regular exhibition opportunities throughout the year in prestigious galleries and venues.
The exhibitions not only create a platform for artists to showcase their work, but they are also great networking events for meeting like minded creative's.
The Tower has showcased the work of more than 100 contemporary artists who have transformed this iconic and atmospheric building into a haunting maze of art for one magical week just before Christmas.
I developed more confidence showing my work and I witnessed many people looking at what I do, asking questions and fascinated by the process which is behind my photography body of work. It has been a really great experience.
As an artist, there is no reason to compare yourself to anyone. We each have our own individual voice, and our own interpretations of the world around us.
What do you do with your chosen own media, is something that only you can do.
Once, you realise this, don't you think that is worth pursuing it? I urge anyone who has this inner gifting, this soul of an artist, to acknowledge it and rekindle it and have confidence in it!
All great ability begins with with belief in that ability, if you think you can't, you will prove yourself right.
Motivate yourself by starting now. I am at the beginning of this wonderful experience of believing in myself.
I know and I feel I am on the right path. I have a vision and I want to develop it, because it can be worthy for other people, it can be helpful, it can help them to ask themselves questions.
I have visited museums and I had a look at beautiful art and I cried. The Arts awaken us for our humanity, and seek to tie us together in common experiences, to the end that we appreciate more, love better, care for our brothers, relate to their suffering and rejoice in their triumphs.
