Images from The Grand Plasto-Baader-Books

To see and read about some of the work from KALEID Edition's The Grand Plasto-Baader-Books exhibition check out Katie Dominy's article in Art Threads (my work gets a mention at the bottom - YAY!) at -
The show, at 23-25 Redchurch Street, Shoreditch, London, runs until 24th December so there are still a few days left to check it out before it closes.

RCA Secret Postcard Prize

I've already said congratulations to Cade Newman who correctly guessed which were my postcard entries in this year's RCA Secret Show (ahead of the sale opening) but I'd forgotten to mention what his prise was. So here it is, Doll Torso, from my series of small Doll Parts paintings. Maybe I'll do another competition for next year's show.

Last Night's Opening Shows

Here are a couple of photos from both of last night's private views ('Botanists of the Asphalt' and 'Tate the Biscuit')- taken by the extraordinary Yoshizen with one of his Heath Robinson-style cameras. To see more of Yoshizen's photos and words of wisdom check out his blog -

Both shows seemed to go very well and the turn out was fantastic. It was great to see so many familiar faces again. Because I was nipping between the two exhibitions I didn't manage to properly see all the work on show at the Tate the Biscuit exhibition (and there is a lot of it - one of my favourites has to be the print of Big Foot, carrying two Tesco shopping bags) down in the basement of Shoreditch Town Hall so I'll be popping along again on Saturday morning. It's a great show, in an amazingly atmospheric venue, with loads of fantastic (and reasonably priced) art - so I'd strongly advise going along before it closes on Sunday.

Two Shows Opening Thursday

This evening's been a bit hectic, setting things up for both of tomorrow's opening nights but at least everything now seems to be in place. I've hung the two paintings (see photos) for the Tate The Biscuit show down in the basement of Shoreditch Town Hall and I've delivered my City sculpture to The City Arts & Music Project, ready for Botanists of the Asphalt.
It's a shame (or maybe fortunate) that I don't drink vodka as I've just found out that Absolute Vodka are sponsoring the Botanists exhibition.
So if anyone would like to come to either or both events you will be most welcome. However, if you are planning to come to the Botanists of the Asphalt, just remember to RSVP to first.
Hope to see you there.
