Month: April 2013
I’ve just come across the work of Simone Shubuck who is now showing at Taylor De Cordoba (New York) and I now feel incredibly inspired from her work, I could spend hours looking at each of her pieces, each has so much character, the more I look the more I see in each piece, I am now thinking about how I can develop my Fashion Dolls in a more abstract direction, I’m thinking ordered chaos with a multitude of happenings.
I completed my final 3 Surreal Fashion Dolls last night and they were taken away for framing today, once I have them back on Tuesday,they’ll be ready to go with the rest of the series and to be exhibited at Debut Contemporary at the beginning of June………I’m so, so excited! 😀
Here’s a quick snapshot of the 5 original Fashion Doll paintings which I’ve just got back from the framer ………they look fantastic in the hand painted, dirty grey wooden frames, with the dolls floating in the middle of the yellow inner frame space.
I shall have 8 framed in total, ready for exhibiting with Debut Contemporary in early June.
Think I’ll be keeping them wrapped in Clingfilm, under my bed so they remain in pristine condition……
Friday was the long awaited opening night for the Coffee Art Project exhibition showcasing the work of the Artists’ who had submitted for the project.
It was a wonderful atmosphere, the room buzzing with creativity and a fantastically diverse range of artwork.
It also reminded me of what a worthwhile cause this is, as all the work shown in this event is to be auctioned off and the profits used towards making wells for the people in Tanzania who have no access to clean drinking water.
Here are my pieces of my piece ‘Barista’ and the opening night:
‘Barista’ – (30×40, acrylic on canvas)
-Currently showing at the Truman Brewery (Brick Lane)
Last Thursday was the opening night of exhibition ‘Brew’ – the coffee shop I exhibited my ‘Alternative Tea Party’ painting is very contemporary and so quirky, also met some wonderful fine Art students from UCA Farnham who curated the show………come and have a look ‘BREW’, (Goswell Rd, London)
Just 2 days till the opening night of ‘Brew’, which I will be exhibiting my ‘Alternative Tea Party’ painting in Pop-up Gallery in Goswell Street, pop along………..
7 – 9pm, Goswell Road Street coffee – 160-164 Goswell Road.
