The Wild Collection at Yorkshire Sculpture Park

I have spent the last six months working towards my first major solo show and I am still pinching myself at being asked to exhibit at Yorkshire Sculpture Park over the summer. Such a huge privilege to have my work displayed in such an inspiring place. I must also thank Yorkshire for producing two solid weeks of blissful weather.
My show, titled 'The Wild Collection' is house in the wonderful garden gallery that curves around a beautiful old garden wall with a preposterously jaw dropping view just outside its doors.
Within the gallery you will find screen prints, wooden toys, marquetry, mugs, bags, cushions and a mural.
My son seemed pleased with the fruits of my labours.
The show is on now until Sept 7th with over forty one off pieces and limited edition prints for sale, the majority of which have been produced exclusively for YSP. For more information, click here.

Happy New Year All!

Happy New Year everyone. Taken a while to get back to the blog, but I am here now. Hope you all had a nice Christmas break. I spent most of mine staring at the scene above with a belly full of food and a glass full of port/gin/brandy/beer/wine. And very nice it was to. This year is already looking mighty busy, so with squeegee in hand I plough forward, but maybe just one more sloe gin first!

Working Together

I have recently completed a new screen print for Mill Co. in London. It was the Mill Co. Third Annual Exhibition in partnership with The Co-operative and as such the brief was 'co-operation'. Above is my take on this brief, and I am rather happy with the result considering my studio set up at the moment. I have shown you a little glimpse of my work space in the second picture, but what this doesn't show is the few inches of floor space I have to work in! Time for a sort out I think. The print should be for sale very soon over at the Mill Co. store.

Myth, Tradition and Folklore

I am very happy to be part of a lovely group show that is opening this Saturday at the Emma Mason Gallery in Eastbourne. It is a celebration of all things mythical, traditional and folklorish. I will be amongst some great artists including the wonderful Jonathan Gibbs and the super talented Alice Pattullo. For more information have a look at the Emma Mason Gallery website.

Prema Card Rack

Another typically boring commission from the lovely people over at Prema. Can you make us a rocket shaped card rack? Oh, go on then, if I must. I cannot tell you how happy I am when people get in contact with a really fun project that you can get your teeth into. Happy days! It sits rather comfortably next to the a board I built for them a little while ago.

Over the last few weeks I have been lucky enough to become part of the lovely Ticktockrobot team, an animation company based down in sunny Brighton. Not only that but a really pleasant job came along even before the ink had dried on the contracts. We were asked to create a series of six stings that highlight the various areas and events that are happening during this years Goodwood Revival Festival. Above is the fruits of our labours.

Not only a fun and satisfying job to work on, but hopefully the start of a beautiful relationship!

These last few months have been hectic to say the least. Barely enough time to breathe with all the projects that have been flying around the studio, but finally the fruits of my labours are starting to emerge. Drove across to London yesterday to deliver a fresh new batch of big old match boxes to the lovely people at Wills Art Warehouse. They are being kind enough to take all my work to the Affordable Art Fair in New York and I am really excited to see how my work goes down across the pond.

The 'Keep The Home Fires Burning' design may well yet turn into a paper based screen print, but maybe a few days off first!
