I’m really excited to be showing alongside some amazing artists at London Miles’ Guilty Pleasures and Modern Vices show opening June 23rd to June 27th 2011.
My piece is titled “Vanity” and will also be released as the second of my prints from 1xRun on 24th June. Again, available for just one week!
The first print run, “Somewhere” went really well and they did a great job with the prints and shipping them all out, so I’m really looking forward to the second release. Hopefully it will be equally successful!
Finally, I’ve just got back from mailing “Eli” to G1988 in LA. It will be part of their annual “Crazy for Cult” show later in the summer. In the past they’ve shown some awesome work by a great selection of artists, so I’m really honoured to be included in line up.
Hey. Enough with the wood malarkey – I’ve been back painting on paper. For the record, Rives BFK is the shiz. It can take so much water and still dry flat. Love it
Anyways, here’s a peek at a couple of all new pieces for some shows coming up this month.
First up, the first work I’ve done for London Miles in (duh) London. I’ve been working on something for the “Literal.Eyes” show opening on 12th May and man, I suffered for this one. It’s actually the 3rd piece I did with the show in mind.
The way I work is very much “make it up as i go along”. I start with half an idea and kind of get in a groove, the painting finds it’s own voice. With this (and a few other upcoming pieces) I’ve been working to fit a theme for a group show and it’s been a f**kin painful process! In this case the theme was art inspired by literature.
Hand on heart, my literary awareness probably extends as far as spiderman comics, but there was something in the idea of Shakespeare’s Hamlet that I though could work with the vibe I was in. Well, I’m pretty damn happy with where I ended up anyway.
I’ve also been working on a piece for the good folk at CAVE Gallery’s upcoming 3rd anniversary show, opening May 23rd. I’ll post a proper pic nearer the date, but here’s a peek at a detail for now.
I’ve been working on this on and off for a few weeks. The ceramic thing’s not going to happen now, but hopefully I’m going to be working with some folks on a limited timed release print run. More news as and when.
Despite the fact that I feel I’ve not done much this year, I’ve completed 2 new paintings for a couple of upcoming shows at London Miles the first of which is a show based on the theme of Vices opening on 25th March. I’ve worked on the theme of Vanity. I’ll put some pics up….soon! Really excited to be working with London Miles.
Also, the piece I did for Phone Booth Gallery’s David Lynch Themed show got accepted. Woohoo!
