'Fresh Ones' at Loop Arts Fair
For our part in Loop we set up painting studio under our ‘Fresh Ones’ banner. Alongside our fast becoming standard product range we scoured Leeds for rogue bits of wood, got some recycled paint and made spontaneous paintings over the two days.
Some pots I made for a personal commission a little while ago, themed around the idea of natural forms and the influence of man on the natural landscape.

Colossal Space is a new personal curatorial project.
Colossal Space is a 55mm x 55mm x 95mm glass case exhibition space. A hand picked selection of artists are invited to use the space any way they desire. The installation or object can be something found or created. However, as important as the internal space, is the external. The exhibiting artist is asked to specify exactly where the exhibition space is placed. For the duration of a one day or night exhibition the space will be positioned in a place that is completely of the artist’s choosing. The expectation being that there is some dialogue between the internal and external, that both are considered with equal importance and that one enhances the other conversely.
When exhibitions will be held is up to the participating artist. On what day, for how long and at what time of the day adds further potential to artists to mould the environment of the show.
Each exhibition will have an opening and will be documented on a specific blog here.

On saturday we had a stall at the East London Printmakers summer fete. It was such a lovely day, there was sun, bros, ciders, games and dudes.
We sold our bits and also ran a memory game, we made paper maché shapes and covered them with a cloth, contestants had 10 seconds to see what was under the cloth and then draw what they could remember. A few teams conquered the game and we had some good runners up/runner ups(?), so some lucky people may be receiving a print in the post soon, thanks if you came down and said hi, took part or thought about us. Thanks to Nick Morley for getting us involved, and also props to the giant lino cut that was printed using a steam roller on the day!
Did some lino cutting and printing for a big group show at the lovely Analogue Books in Edinburgh that I am super stoked to part of, it’ll be up in April, more photos soon. This is the biggest lino undertaking I have done to date, A2 print in black and GOLD!
