WONDROUS OBSESSIONS: THE ART OF COLLECTING

This Friday sees the opening of the “Wondrous Obsessions: The Art of Collecting”, an exhibition curated by The Connor Brothers at Hang-Up Gallery in London.

You can see the pre-show interview I did with Mike Snelle here

To view the collection of works by Butch Anthony, Candice Tripp, The Connor Brothers, Dr. Victor Schroeder, Giles Walker, Joe Webb, John Henry Toney, Laura Keeble, Mark Powell and Swoon, you can see the catalogue here.

Don’t forget to RSVP to the Private View launch this Thursday from 6 – 9 pm. RSVP is essential as spaces are already limited – please do so here.

May 6 – 3 July
Hang-Up Gallery
81 Stoke Newington Road
Stoke Newington
London
N16 8AD

The show’s theme provided me a chance to let go of any stylistic restraints I (now realise that I unthinkingly) impose on myself as well as exhibit a one-off etching from Goldmark Atelier that would otherwise have remained hidden in my studio.

The collaborative painting that Butch Anthony and I worked on together will also be on show for the first time in the UK. Receiving that canvas from the US was something of a treat because until recently, I had only seen’s Butch’s addition online.

Bangkok 02: baking

bangkok

Ideal Brown and I left Bangkok for two weeks to squeeze as many new miles into Thailand as we could. When we returned, I saw him off a day after his initial flight departed (ouch) and got settled in my hotel room-come-studio.

I spent the week running back and forth to Beejoir’s house with a baking pan containing pieces of doll in various stages of completion – detailed here, with pictures of food:

icecream

Every day an ice-cream man would visit the road. As soon as I’d hear his bell, I’d scramble to my third floor balcony and shout “Sawadee ka, WAIT? WAIT, WAIT!” and then I’d tear downstairs to buy as many varieties of coconut as I could carry.

hole in the ground

My latest etching is finally available! It took several months, two plates, three test proofs and a lot of cramping and it’s finally ready to release into the wild. Goldmark Atelier have been amazing at coaxing my picture out of the scratch-work.
