Looking forward to tonight’s private view for Violence of Flowers and seeing friends that I have not seen for far too long. If you can make it along I will be in the Castle from about 6pm – PV runs till they throw us out.
In the studio I have worked on a few new pieces, recently finished are ‘Overgrown’ and ‘Take Cover’ and am working on a new piece which is now nearly complete – will be posting later.
Hope to see you tonight
This Thursday is the preview for Violence of Flowers at the Castle Pub in E17, I have been in the castle for a couple of days now making sure that the food and the beer is up to standard and can happily report that both are ready for consumption by all. If you are heading from central London grab the victoria line to Walthamstow – The castle is a 10 minute walk from there. I have been juggling the work that I will be showing in this show and have finally decided on a set of 7 pieces which reflect the entire collection. I will also have the other pieces from the show in the portfolio so you will be able to get an idea of the full body of work.
Also starting this thursday – is the official opening of the Cultivate Gallery on Vyner street I will be showing Uprooted alongside some great work from artists Sean Worrall (also Gallery Coordinator), David Agenjo, Infinity Bunce, Steven Rawlings, Emma Harvey, Danielle Hodson, Gaia and Joanna Rose Tidy.
As the Tate’s exhibition Romantics comes to a close this summer, DegreeArt will be presenting an exhibition with a fresh approach and a more unique dialogue of Romanticism in its contemporary form. Numerous young artists, of different backgrounds and practices, draw inspiration from the spirit of such a traditional movement, addressing the theme in a new light to discover innovative perspectives by presenting a variety of formulations dealing with a number of issues to characterize today’s social and environmental concerns.
Unlike the works of Predecessors the collection of works on display seek to explore how postmodern media such as photography and installation art encompass the motif of Romanticism as well as a revival for modern painting.
The exhibition contains works by:
Julie Clark, Joe Cruz, Christopher Eyles, Carne Griffiths, Jemma Grundon, John Hainsworth, Michael Hammond, Emmanuelle Loiselle, Alexander Milnes, Rob Reedand Elizabeth Wheeler.
