WUWO interview!!

Today WUWO (What’s Up What’s On) Magazine are running an interview I did with them recently on my paintings, working with SCAB, The Undiscovered Creature Project and weather I’d rather fight one horse-sized bat-eared crab fox or a hundred bat-eared crabfox-sized horses..

This Evening’s Progress..

This evening I’ve been working on a new entanglement. I’d already drawn in the basics roughly with watercolour pencils a few months ago,  giving the canvas a good soak in the bath afterwards to even the texture and get the pigment right into the weave of the canvas. After leaving it to dry completely I began today with the oils: First with some whites to maintain the form, then some blue/greys where the light hits followed by some darker background tones.

One really nice thing about painting ‘in this direction’ (rough lights to darks) is that I only used one brush today (synthetic sable flat 1/2 inch) so now I only have one brush to clean before bed (as opposed to the 15+ a night of the later stages) which is amazing because I’m exhausted. This is nothing like finished but I love how quickly they change in these early stages. Hopefully I’ll be posting the finished article before the end of 2013… 🙂

The Brick Lane Gallery Christmas Pop-up Affordable Art Show.

Wednesday evening saw the launch of The Brick Lane Gallery‘s Pop-up Christmas Affordable Art show. I was lucky enough to be included in the TRULY STAGGERING range of excellent emerging and established Artists represented in this fine collection so, on Wednesday afternoon I wrapped up warm and jumped on a train in to town to attend the opening party.

The show is completely free for participants, a rare opportunity to exhibit and sell work from a prominent London Arts venue with no commission (virtually unheard of!) so 100% 0f proceeds from sales go directly to the Artist. The range of mediums is also very impressive. From INCREDIBLE paper cut work upstairs to beautiful photographic nudes and painted chipboard creations downstairs, painstakingly peeled back layer by layer to create bold but delicate pop imagery. Really very beautiful. I wish I’d taken more pictures but the place was RAMMED from start to finish which made this tricky and even when you can get to something to take a picture, photos rarely do these things justice. You really must just go and see for yourself.

One of my favourite pieces was this awesome contribution from South London Artist Mark Fell.
