Say Hello

Credulous Morons – Newcastle Late Shows

Thank you from the blackest coal pits of my racing blood pump to everyone who came to see what I do. I never expected such a big, interested crowd of genuinely nice people. So many friends, long time supporters and new faces – I was so touched by the turn out and by the messages of support from people who couldn’t make it; thank you so much.

The decision to do the Late Shows was the result of a broiling combination of fearful urges; to host a one-night show all on my own, to try to manage every aspect of it and see if I could pull it off, to bring work back to Newcastle where I get a lot of love and support from friends and strangers who can’t pop off to London or NY or LA to get a quick look. I also wanted to make a physical connection between my instragram feed and the work I put out without the pressure of a full-blown exhibition that ‘speaks’ for where I am in my art-making life.

Over the past two years I’ve become aware of the fact that the work I make between shows gets relegated entirely to ‘process’ irrespective of the fact that in retrospect I often prefer it to the work I end up taking to exhibitions. I haven’t thought too hard about it being looked at or how; I just make it. I pull the trigger on ideas without worrying about where they might rest on my personal Scale of Shitness. As a result it has no place. It doesn’t fit in. If someone doesn’t ask if they can buy it I just hide it and then eventually, after enough years go by, I destroy it or give it to friends as if it’s clothing I got too fat to wear. That unique combination of fondness, self disgust and shame over being responsible for something that didn’t quite get a chance to be seen.

At first I thought I’d put all of that work up. Typically though, what I initially pictured (“PROCESS work!”, drawings, roughs, finished articles that don’t ‘fit’ anywhere else) lost their appeal and I wanted to do something new.

Preparation was squeezed into a brilliant, tight, time frame that didn’t allow pause for thought. I’ve entertained the idea of throwing colour out for a show, but didn’t think I’d ever be able to commit to that. I just about managed it for Credulous Morons; two mere red noses; a personal best.

Anyway, I don’t like it when artists explain themselves to the n’th degree, but in the shuffle to meet my stupid-as-fuck personal deadline, I didn’t even come close to providing any of the information a regular press release would offer. There you go, if you’re still reading.

– very special thanks to Chris, Sue, Will, Liz, Emily and Jamie. The Late Shows and the staff at the Baltic 39. Without them it wouldn’t have happened at all.

Prep

The Late Shows draw closer and bring with it my deadline; I’ll have the evening of May 15th to gut Studio 32 and fill it with my own work.

It feels strange to show in the building I work in- stranger still to do it in a studio that isn’t mine. Like I’m hosting a dinner party in a neighbour’s house while my own family huddle in a locked shed outside.

Credulous Morons – the Late Shows

Baltic 39, Newcastle Late Shows, Candice Tripp

In celebration of Newcastle’s Late Shows, I’ll be popping up with a one-night show at the Baltic 39.

‘Credulous Morons’ will be open for 4 sweet hours on May 16th from 7pm – 11pm.

Based on an extension of the open studio platform, I’m going to be exhibiting the work I make between shows that often doesn’t see the light of day.

If you’re unable to attend but would like to see new available work, please sign up to my preview list.

I hope you can make it- I’ll be all the way up on the 3rd floor (with beer, long may it last)

Secret 7″ at somerset house

secret7

YUP. 3rd year running and this time I went full-cheese with my submission.

I can’t show you because it’s secret until after the sale. But you know, it’s there. And leaves.

Anyway, this year’s exhibition is now open at Somerset House until May 3rd. Yes! I’ve never experienced the visceral rush of having a superior approve of me in a manner that led to a promotion, so having a painting on show at Somerset House means I get to award myself 1 Life Point – irrespective of the fact that I can’t even prove to you which one is mine and that it does in fact exist.

At any time I get to cash in a Life Point for One Bucket of Chocolate at my own expense. It comes with free Self Loathing, Vomit Feelings and weight gain so I’m riding pretty high right now. I’m nearly 30 and am making up my own unit measurement of self worth (WITH shortcomings), so things are pretty okay ish right now.

At 10am on May 4th you can attend the sale and fight strangers for sleeves that you think Someone Excellent may have touched and if you lose at that you can buy mine. All proceeds go to charity.

This year there are some big names in there, but I’m going to level with you and say that right now I can’t remember which ones they are. I should be so lucky to exhibit with them and forget who they are. (I’m just really hungry right now and can’t think beyond sorting that out)
