Just Beacause Biscuits Break, Doesn’t Mean They Don’t Taste Like Success.. .. /.

What can i really say…/. Apart from thank you to EVERYONE…././. Everyone who came last night, everyone involved in the show and everyone around those involved.././ This show was both mine and Karol Michalecs first show in Brighton and because of you all it was a raging success…. /. The building was full all evening and a buzzing hub of activity …/. Never before has someone elses work complemented mine so well./. Its been incredible to work with such like minded people. This show encompassed all of my favorite elements of fine art… Painting, Graphics, Sculpture, Drawing, Collage, Performance and Free Art.

This show wouldn’t have been possible without Karol Michalec, Hazel Stephenson, Gill at The Painting Pottery Cafe, Alexander Glass, Harry (i dont know your full name light man), Lee Belbin and of course the love of my life Frin.. .  . /.///.

This is the start of a beautiful friendship and you can all expect to see the Belbin and Michalec name joined in the future… . ./.

You can view some of the pictures here…/. but there are more on the way.///.

They Were Broken…/. But Still Loved/ … /.

A bit of a delay with this post, totally my fault for not retrieving the photos in time../ .But last week was the trial run of ‘F i n d M e’ a free art give away which if it went well will co inside with my new solo show ‘Just Because Things Break, Doesn’t Mean They’re Broken’ and it went very well indeed…. ./ ./

Last week i dropped 30 original pieces of broken pottery around Brighton Uni, and asked those who found them to bring them back at the end of the week to try and reassemble them into some sort of big fractured piece of art. I only expected about 5 to come back but nearly half of the pieces came back! which means that went i do the full run of 300 pieces in April around 150 should come back (if that’s not too presumptuous)  Below are some photos of all the pieces that went out../ coming soon will be pictures of them actually out, and some pictured of those lovely people who brought them back….. . . /. A huge thanks to all who took the time to bring them back and to Hazel Stephenson and Karol Michalec for being such a tremendous help… . /////. /

Just Because Things Break Doesn’t Mean They’re Broken…. . ././ .

Ok,… . /. So i can now confirm that my new solo show ‘Just Because Things Break Doesn’t Mean They’re Broken’ will open on 15th of April 2013.. .. /. In conjunction with The Painting Pottery Cafe, Brighton.. /. It will run for three weeks and the reason i’m really very excited about this show is that it gives you the viewer an opportunity to get some free art and even take a part in creating your own.. .. .//.

I will be taking all of the broken pottery and plates and breaking them even further and then painting them to be given away to unsuspecting finders. I will be scattering them across the streets of Brighton, And the deal is those who find the pieces get to keep them, but i urge those finders to bring them to the opening of the show to try and reassemble all of the broken pieces into one whole piece of interactive art…/ . // I will be running a trial on the 4th February by dropping a large hand full of fragments in the center of Brighton, with the hope that they will be reassembled on the 7th at Brighton Uni (grande parade) in the court yard. So for those Brightonian followers keep your eyes peeled and watch this space for more details.. . .. /./

After a day of gallery meets i am very pleased to announce my latest project…/ ‘Just Because Things Break Doesn’t Mean They’re Broken’

(2012-10-24) Untitled

After dropping my free art pigeons this year for Gay Pride i received a message expressing the heart break of not being able to collect one.. so this little guy was commissioned for the very reasonable price of £15 .././

All December for a low budget and independent xmas gift i will be offering pigeons of your design at the same price Inc post. All pigeons will be painted on recycled and reclaimed materials and and the set size of 20 cm x 20 cm.. . /./

Pigeon Process.. . . ./. ..//.

Today i have been very busy indeed.. ./. ./ Aside from all the other little projects i have going on all over the place, today i decided to document the process of creating a whole batch of Free Art Birds.. . ./.

Phase one.. . / This beautiful piece of hardboard i lifted from a skip last night.. . /. So first i had to see just how many pigeons i could get out of it.. .. 9 is the answer.

Next Chop them up with one of my favorite tools

a circular disk cutter.. . // mm mmm m

And then give them all a quick coat of black.. . Again my

favorite of all colors, And i know the knee jerk response

to that “But its not a color, its a shade!” that may be

in the natural world but when it comes to paint every

single shade / color needs pigment to give it said color,

in my case the color of that pigment is indeed black,

and as i stroke the black paint side to side i am coloring.. . . . /./. Its a color.. . ./.

Phase four, time to get dirty and finger paint .. .. . /.

Finally after the paint is sufficiently dry add the final touches in the form of eyes,beaks and sign off . . ./.

Tomorrow i will post close ups of each one of these little fellows before they go on their individual journeys.. . .. /. Some are going to Portsmouth tomorrow to find new homes, Some are going.. .well im not sure where yet it all depends on who wins the competition tomorrow on Facebook,.I will be running another give away to all those who share and like the links, names drawn from a hat at the end of the week.. . find out more here

And the rest are on a very long journey indeed, they are off to Tel-Aviv to take part in a free art give away in December  and you can find out more about that here.. /.
