And last but by no means least… Unwrapped
I have 3 new pieces in Leytonstone’s newest gallery The Stone Space. The first exhibition in the space presents the work of 10 contemporary artists in reponse to the theme Unwrapped.
The private View runs from 7-9:30pm this Thursday – more info here
These are new works, influenced by william Morris wallpaper designs that peel back the gallery walls to reveal the undergrowth that was once in its place.
example shown below is called Undergrowth (Unwrapped)
Meanwhile I am busy in the studio preparing for a solo show coming in November at Gallery 90, more details to follow shortly, and tomorrow I will be dropping 6 new framed pieces of work with Eyestorm for the Hampstead Affordable Art Fair.
The video below is a short section of work in progress on the piece Devoured, which will be exhibited at Factory Project from the 13th October 2011 at the Hospital Club, Covent Garden. The music for the video is by Fizzymilk – a studio band that I record with & features the tracks, Wadodem & Marscapes (Thanks Mo)

Been working on a few ideas for the show and I’m gonna throw some fresh approaches and experimental pieces in there along with a recently finished piece from the studio called devoured.. Getting inspiration from other artists in the Studio @ Norlington Road too – so I doth my cap to Fashion Photographer Arta Kane and painter Paul Cummings and all those craftsman around whose skills range from stained glass specialists to makers of theatrical animatronics Jonathan & Jeremy.
Here’s the latest piece from the studio which will be making its way to The Hospital Club this month..
Finally I will have some new work as part of the opening show at Leytonstone’s Stone Space. The show – entitled ‘Unwrapped’ is a curated collection of work from local and guest artists responding to the theme unwrapped and features installation, paste-up work, drawings, paintings, model making and sculpture all within an intimate new gallery space just 5 mins from Leytonstone tube… The exhibition opens this Saturday 1st October plus The Stone Space is celebrating the Launch with a private view on the 13th October.
