a visit to northampton

15 March 2008

on tuesday i go to northampton to meet with the organisers and have a good look around the greyfiars bus station, which is the location for OSOP.
i’ll post some pictures when i get back. i think it’s an amazing building - those who live within sight of it seem to think otherwise.

i’ve been selected to exhibit in OSOP this june. i will be devising a new piece of work for the greyfriers bus station in northampton.
the bus station is a great venue; a large building that, due to it’s distinctive 70s architecture, either causes love or hate. see this bbc article for more info and some pictures.

i’ve won first prize in the CUBE open with a piece of work i haven’t even seen: passage. i sent some plans to the gallery last week, they built the work, and the show opens tomorrow night (12.07.07).
the prize is £1000 and the opportunity to work in the studio at CUBE next year.
hopefully i’ll have some photos of my work soon.

a man on the train

4 July 2007

take your fucking sunglasses off you’re on the underground jesus you’re dressed like some kind of middle-aged native-american obsessed tom cruise all twitchy and fidgety like you’re the pimp-daddy all swagger and head nodding to one side where did you get those moccasins? dreams of neil armstrong and buzz aldrin still orbit your brain the cold war never died you’ll kill a few commies but you’re quite into that hippy shit ‘save the planet but only for god-fearing decent white folk’

7 April 2007

been very busy of late - working on exhibitions, working for other artists, working in galleries. working working working. i suppose it’s better than not working, which would mean not getting paid.
due to all this work i’ve had no time to blog, relax or prepare for our very imminent departure to st petersburg - the purpose of which is to celebrate my mother’s 60th birthday!
more updates when i recover.

intervention completed

21 March 2007

intervention was completed last thursday, and the private view on friday night went really well. it was very busy and i got some great responses.
it has taken me until now to post this as i’ve been working at spruth magers gallery for the past three days helping to install the andreas gursky exhibition - three very large, framed photographs. so big they had to take the front window out to get them in.

knackered in the rsa

15 March 2007

it is now the fourth day of installing my work for the essa show. i’m knackered! i was working in the gallery until 9:30pm last night, making it the third 12hr day in a row. the work is benefitting from the extra hours though - it’s looking very good, if i do say so myself.
today should be the final day. there isn’t that much left to do. although whenever you think that there is always something extra - you get that little voice in the back of your mind saying ‘maybe i should just...’ and you end up working until half past nine at night.
