A Gothic Story art exhibition

The opening night of the 'A Gothic Story' exhibition went really well. Lots of people turned up and every one seemed to enjoy the suitable eerie atmosphere of the venue, down in the basement of Shoreditch Town Hall, London. I'm sure the free drink also helped things along.
I had a fantastic response to my five sculptures displayed in the main entrance hall and the eight smaller pieces that comprised my shelf installation in the pipe room. 'Sleeping Beauty Box' (just about viewable in the above photo) proved to be a favourite with many people. This was great as it was the first time that I exhibited this piece. To view more images from the show simply click on the 'recent flickr images' slide show at the top left-hand corner of this page.

On Thursday 3rd July at 7pm there will be a talk and torch lit tour through the show. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Ambassadors @ The Jago

Ambassadors @ The Jago (2), originally uploaded by Wayne Chisnall.

This is an interior shot of The Jago, the new gallery/bar located half way down Redchurch Street in Shoreditch, London.

At the moment I am showing three of my paintings here, The Ambassadors (as seen at the far end of the bar), Kitchen Blue and Spidey Segments. A few of my signed and editioned Spidey Pods prints (taken from my Spidey Segments painting) are also available from The Jago.

On a slightly different note - the Strychnin Gallery show which featured two of my sculptures, The City and Pelvis, has just come down. However, Pelvis can still be viewed throughout the new exhibition, downstairs in the gallery's permenant collection. The new show is called 'Ugly American' and I'm looking forward to meeting the artist, Chet Zar, at tomorrow's opening (Friday, 13th June, 7pm). If anyone else fancies checking out what looks like being an amazing show then the address for Strychnin is 65 Hanbury Street, off Brick Lane, London E1 5JP.

See ya there.
