From the book 'MOON TELL ME TRUTH'

Saturday 11th of May to Sunday 26th of May

Three Weekends : from 11.00 am to 6.00 pm

This exhibition is called ILLUSTRATED POEMS OF HOPE AND UNDERSTANDING and consists of hand-written, illustrated poems by children in Gaza aged 9 - 15, written in the spring of 2023, before the current conflict. Despite their experience of violence and trauma, their voices are optimistic and hopeful.


The poems were originally submitted as entries for a poetry competition run by UK charity the Hands Up Project (HUP) and subsequently published in a collection called ‘MOON TELL ME TRUTH. HUP connects children around the world with young people in Palestine. By means of online interaction, drama and storytelling activities it enables the use of creativity and self-expression to promote mutual understanding, personal growth and the development of English language skills.    Website:


The images are not for sale as the exhibition is going to travel on, but copies of the book they come from will be on sale and will go to support the HANDS UP PROJECT charity.

 Paintings/Collage Works

 My work is thematic, often based on drawing research while travelling. I change and develop ideas back in my studio and work often ends up abstract.  I work with a variety of mediums, including painting, collage, print, and 3D work and have also explored different styles.  This exhibition includes collages made using elements of my own paintings and prints inspired from my work and travel in Kazakhstan.

I’m a figurative painter. As a current affairs camerawoman I spent a lot of time waiting for something to happen.  It’s that sensibility that I hope informs my work. I’m interested in the quotidian nature of normal life, The fleeting unguarded moment. People, together but alone in in-between spaces; On public transport, in the street and queueing. The people around but in-between the action.  These paintings include those based on photographs of the queue to view the Late Queen’s lying-in state.

David Weekes writes: Painting and drawing have been compulsive activities for me since I was a child. I enjoy analysing the world around me, and then expressing my interpretations in a manner that is intended to convey both boldness and clarity.

From the first stab of a loaded brush on canvas, or the first sweep of charcoal or graphite across paper, I begin to connect with the object or person in front of me. I work from observation and my subject matter is broad. Landscape, portrait, still life: each genre presents an opportunity for me to reach a deeper understanding of my subject and reveal a truth about it that I hope an audience can connect with.
