Solo exhibition at the Horniman Museum, 28
November 2015 - 24 January 2016.
The exhibition was funded by a crowd
funding campaign run by the Art Fund.
This was an exhibition devised and curated
by Mark Fairnington who designed the
exhibition space and selected the work. It
was significant as a curatorial research
project that brought together paintings
made by the artist over the last 15 years
including large-scale mounted insects the
size of humans, birds of paradise specimens,
panoramic views of specimens in the Natural
History Museum stores, and paintings of
life-sized prize winning bulls.
