So it’s the last few days before I fly out to LA for the opening of the group show at CAVE gallery. It’s great to be showing at CAVE again – they did such a good job with my last show there back in December ’10 (man, time goes sooooo fast).
The show opens March 10th and is on view through April 7th and I’m honoured to be showing alongside John Park and Christopher Cuseo with 6 new paintings.
I’m really excited about the show and the new pieces. I approached it wanting to produce a cohesive body of work and worked through a bunch of stuff in my Moleskine before settling on an idea. Working around a theme of “Threads” I’m really stoked with how they’ve turned out. 3 of the pieces are also a lot larger than I’ve painted previously so I was working a little bit outside of my comfort zone!
And as my Moleskine was such an intrinsic part of the process, I thought it would be cool to mark the show by giving away one of the graphite studies done in preparation for the show. I’ll be announcing details over the next 2 or 3 days, so if you want a chance to get your hands on a unique piece of OG art watch this space, or better still, sign up for updates through my site at www.craww.com
Yay for free stuff!
Here’s a taste of the new work, “Faith”:
A little heads up on my first solo show next month at Electrik Sheep in Newcastle.
Hugely stoked about the upcoming show. There’s a bunch of new work that I’ve been focused on the past few months, some pieces I’ve posted on the blog, but a whole bunch of unseen stuff too.
“Droodlings” features paintings on paper alongside some of the other materials I’ve been working with recently – some collage, some painting on wood and found materials, alongside 3 all new limited edition prints. The show runs October 14th through to November 12th, hope to see some of you there at the opening. If you do make it, be be sure to come up and say hello.
Here’s a few teaser pics of some new work, more detailed pics to come later!
Ebb & Flow:
This Sunday saw my first venture in live art.
I caught the train down to London on Sunday to hook up with the Kitch-en crew at The Lockside in Camden, a bit nervous as I hadn’t tackled anything this large – and I was doing it in front of people too – but I ended up having a really good time.
Met some cool people, had a few beers and enjoyed painting in the sun. The finished result was maybe a bit crude, but I was pretty pleased with it for a first try!
