Shutters in photos.

The process of painting the Castlefield Art Gallery was really enjoyable. Being up a scaffold tower whilst it is sunny is an ideal way to spend a few days.
The design is by Nina Chua.

Castlefield Art Gallery shutters.

Join us to celebrate the closing of our newly painted shutters at the end of the working day on Sunday 20 October, from 5.30pm for drinks, closing starts at 6pm.

shutters

Over the summer of 2013, Castlefield Gallery (CG) has commissioned artist Nina Chua to make an artwork for the existing metal shutters that ‘wrap’ around the gallery when the gallery is closed. CG and Chua are very pleased with the results and are now ready to ‘unveil’ the painted shutters.

This commission was funded by Arts Council England through their Grants for the Arts scheme as part of the CG organisation development project over the past 2 years. Huge thanks also goes to artist Tasha Whittle who has applied the artwork to the shutters with incredible skill and ingenuity.

 So come and celebrate this new permanent artwork with us on Sunday 20 October, starting at 5:30pm.

Trinity Arts

A creative workshop at Z-Arts as part of Trinity Arts with year 7. I introduced them to the idea of ‘Note to Self’ (notes written in moments of madness and or clarity) creating cosmic’s and my way of working. Which is normally listening to music whilst drawing subconsciously and looking at what the cosmic’s have created to see what is beyond the page. It was awesome and the art work created is truly inspiring.

Let’s Play Sardines!

I have recently customised a La Sardina DIY Lomography camera which will be exhibited at the Lomography Gallery Store East London on Thursday 17th January. 

My camera will be exhibited alongside Kid Acne, Felt Misstress, Malarky, Pete Fowler, Supermundane, Gemma Correll,  Donna Wilson and Chris Howker to name a few ace creatives!

My approach to the camera for resourceful and as per usual a bit daft, I saw the La Sardina camera as a bird.. that big flash had to be a head right…?
Using the little wooden bits you get when you buy pre made canvasses (due to my hording nature I had a tin box full) as my feathers I figured out the best way to present them onto the camera, then painted and glued them on.

I then didn’t like what i did and started again, so the photos to see here are the initial attempt and the finish product looks something similar, if not better. The back is painted all over and I also customised the coloured flash parts for different head pieces.

There will be free beers provided by Saint Beer So let them know how much you enjoy their brew at @EnjoySaint

Keep up to date with the exhibitions deets with #letsplaysardines

And HERE BEEEE the link on the lomography website.

Thanks to Lomography for asking me to do this, it was so much fun and a nice start to 2013!

Emerald Green Jumpers

According to Creative Review emerald green is the colour of 2013. Now i’m not normally one to follow trends, I just do what I like, especially when it comes to colours. I fancied a change from the sports grey ones i had been printing and these caught my eye. Love the colour! So get in ahead with next years trend and buy one of these jumpers from the online shop this year! (well.. 24 days)
