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… . /////. /
First bunch of drops.. .. / ./
‘Just Because Things Break, Doesn’t Mean They’re Broken’ Opens on the 5th of April at Brighton Painting pottery Cafe, North Laine…./.

This is one of the posters for my first solo show of 2013../../ I do hope you can make it../
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’
In collaboration with ‘The Painting Pottery Cafe’ in Brighton i will be hosting a new solo exhibition and interactive street art give away…/ With trail dates set out i still can’t give too much away but watch this space for details…/. it will be a smashing show.././
I have been a bit rubbish at posting in the past few weeks and im only just starting to get on top of it all…/ . ///
This March i am part of an incredible exhibition put on by I LOVE ART UK. It brings together 13 women and 13 men from all artistic walks to celebrate the similarities and differences we all share and it co insides with international women’s day. It is going to be one of the more beautiful venues i’ve had my work displayed in and one of the most diverse group shows i’ve ever been part of, But don’t take my word for it look for your self…….. ././. Each week two new artist get announced so theres plenty more to come still… . ./.
Check out the current releases here… /. https://www.facebook.com/ILOVEARTUK/photos_albums
Each Artist is creating a solely original piece for the show, which will be for sale and also available in a limited run of prints…//.
So yesterday filming went extremely well…/ .Got all the shots necessary and even had time for a little urban exploring.. / Unfortunately the same cannot be said for the photos of new paintings promised, I’d say that 50% of them are usable so whilst I’m working my way through the pile i am going to be very cruel and post these three paintings which are all revisits to old paintings..//. I never really liked the paintings in the first place so i chopped them up re painted them and put them back together again…… . . . . ./. I have posted pictures of these three pieces over the past month or so but these photos are much better quality../.
But don’t worry your selves i will also do another post this evening of a completely new piece… . One i am very proud of… . /. /.

This year me and my very good friend Leopold West started writing a short film. Initially intended as a 3min short for a competition about the idea of “boss” it quickly snow balled into a much bigger monster, Thankfully the competition was abandoned and so we were free to take as long as we wanted and to do what we wanted.. .. just the way i like it. We decided to stick with the premise of “boss” as we’d already had more than half the script down. Most of the filming was completed around spring but then a wave of chaos crashed into our tiny little world and we were forced to put the unfinished film on the back burner. At the end of this summer we managed to find a place and time to meet up and get the final shot. With this most important of shots successfully completed it gave a new burst of life and activity to the project… /. /. with Myself in Brighton ,Leopold in Southampton and our very talented sound engineer Joe Gilder at Boneyard audio in Guildford its a wonder this film has made it out at all.. . But it has.. ./. well nearly//. . with only a few more tweaks to add I am very pleased to be a part of this project and can’t wait to release the finished product.. . ///. In the mean time here is the trailer .. .. …/ . Enjoy Little One

I’m sure that most of us when walking the streets pay very little attention to our immediate surroundings and the creatures that we share it with. Most of it gets swept past our eyes and shoved off the pavement as we rush to be somewhere we most likely don’t want to be. These free art birds, in a way are much like you. They are somewhere they don’t want to be too, they also want to go home. So if you happen across one of these stray birds, take them in and they will love you always.. .. ../ .. /.//./ .
