“A time or date when day and night are of equal length. I would suggest for the forthcoming Exhibition “Equinox” at Felix and Spear, 24 March - 14 April 2018. I take both a literal and metaphorical interpretation. Inviting some artists from The Royal Watercolour Society to respond in the same way. This show brings together to their vision on the theme of “Equinox” to be further interpreted by the Visitor and hereby hoping for yet more meanings and feeling.”
