Fifteen framed pictures raring to go! Most of them will be exhibited on table tops with a series of small candles in front. Each one should feel like a little shrine – I think it will work really well. It’s great to be doing something different, the images I’ve selected will work really well in the darkness.
Here’s a preview of the exhibition text –
‘Taking advantage of the unique atmosphere here at the London Canal Museum tonight, Paul Clifford has selected fifteen dark, seductive and mysterious images from Venice.
The canals of Venice feel altogether different to London’s industrial, historic waterways - especially in the eerie silence of Venetian night. After dark, with no car engines, after the tourists have disappeared, the City becomes fascinating and foreboding, the canals now darkened back streets squeezed tight between buildings; mysterious and inaccessible, attractive and dangerous. It's those hazy, half remembered, elusive feelings that are evoked in these images.’
Should be a really good night - the museum has put up a Facebook page for the event listing all the artists at www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=224197860930182.
I'm also pleased to see the exhibition featured in this week's Time Out magazine...

Anyway, that'll do for now. I'm looking forward to seeing some of you tonight!
