My most recent solo exhibition was at Museum Haus Konstruktiv, Zurich. Since 2008 I have been developing projects based on research in to British Construction and Systems Art from the 1950s to 1970s initiated as a result of a Henry Moore Institute Fellowship. I have given papers for seminars at TATE, Leeds Art Gallery and Henry Moore Institute and public gallery talks on artists such as Raoul de Keyser [Whitechapel], Kenneth and Mary Martin, Laura Owens [Camden Arts Centre], Robert Mangold [Parasol Unit] and Norman Dilworth [Huddersfield Art Gallery].

I am represented by Hales Gallery, London and Galerie von Bartha, Basel and am currently Chair of the board of Tannery Arts London and on the advisory board of Drawing Room, London.
