Jesus Festival Exhibiton

-->

Here is a link to the web-publicity for my forthcoming show at Solihull Gallery. The images are from the Maloula Jesus Festival. I’ll post again closer to the time with more news about the show as it comes together.

On another note, you can see these two images in ‘the flesh’, at the Gas Hall Gallery at BMAG until the 6th of May, as part of the selection for the West Midlands Open 2010. There’s some great work on show and it’s well worth a visit.

Exhibition details can be found here.

Nine Cuban Photographs

-->

Just in case you’re not there already, here’s a couple of images from my current show at Moseley Exchange, Birmingham, Nine Cuban Photographs.

Posting during the private view is a bit current perhaps, but you can extrapolate backwards from there if you wish. The private view is happening as I write, and the pictures will be up for about a month.

Come and have a look. All images are for sale!

FOT

-->

Recent events in the long and illustrious history of Festival Object Trading (FOT) are here recorded. Customers, according to established traditions, used the FOT Exchange Rate Mechanism to add FOT currency to an object of their choice, which could then be used to purchase from a long list of Products, Events and Services. These Products, Events and Services include legal services, the world-renowned Mate Peg(TM), a Giraffe Stamp Licking Service, Festival Alarm Call Services, Festival SMS, the fantastic Sombrero Self-Portrait service, and the Lovers’ Cigarrette.

Travel

[singlepic id=337 w=320 h=240 float=none]

I’ve a series in development, early stages, that looks at travel: movement of the subject through space. It’s about the condition of being, the aesthetics, the emotional states we cross, rather than the politics as such. There will be text, drawing, ephemeral evidence of passage, at least I think there will be and that’s how I’m planing it at this stage.

This is one of the galleries, just to have images in the post-

Cheers fro looking – let me know what you think.

Stechford Project

-->

In Stechford, Johnny O’Hanlon of Hamfisted! and I worked with members of Stechford Youth Network, Bierton Road Youth Centre and Birmingham Disability Resource Centre, to produce an 18m ‘window-mural’ for a new health centre.

An article in the Birmingham Mail has more information, as well as a sample of the work installed.

Here are portraits of some members of Bierton Road Youth Centre who took part:

Just moved into a new studio-era, in Beautiful Digbeth, Downtown Bir ming HAM!

Superman

It’s categorically unrelated, but when I came across this picture, and all I could think about was the song from episode 4 of Psychoville: repellent, pathetic, sublime.

Arts in Regeneration

Since February I’ve been working on this project:

It’s been really good, hard work but very interesting. The showcase went down well at the Drum on Tuesday.

The photos below were made working with students from schools in Aston and Nechells, around the theme of ‘Our Shared Future’

Many thanks to all those involved.
