I am pleased to have been able to see ‘The Mausoleum of the Giants’ in Sheffield this weekend. It is an unusual exhibition by the street artist Phlegm in one of the city’s old factories and well worth a visit!
The exhibition has a number of large sculptural figures and creatures as well as smaller ones and some wall paintings too.
The exhibition opened last Saturday and the private view was very well attended. There has been a steady flow of visitors all this week and some lovely comments in the visitors book!
But rather than waffle on about it, I’ll let the artwork speak for itself…
It has been an excellent experience and I am proud to exhibit my work alongside such talented artists. But now its time for some thanks. Many, many thanks to Nick, who organised the whole shebang and whose energy and commitment is beyond comprehension. Thanks also to my lovely wife, who could describe herself as ‘long-suffering’ but doesn’t. My daughter Grace for being the official photographer of the Private View, and of course, everyone who has visited the exhibition.
And finally, standing proudly in front of my prints…
With the ‘Flatlands’ exhibition opening on Saturday, its been all hands to the pumps, planning, prepping and hanging at Greyfiars Artspace this week, with a little more to do tomorrow. The vinyl lettering for the window was installed yesterday and looking good against the reflection of the Greyfriars Tower.
There has been much measuring, levelling, considering and squinting through half closed eyes going on in order to get everything just right, all accompanied by Nick’s amazing silent whistling – honestly!
Getting everything measured out, level and marked up really brought out my OCD!
While elsewhere, things were a little less organised!
And finally, in a blast from the past, I actually put some old Letraset to use! Ah the memories…
Our opening event is tomorrow between 4 and 6pm – pop along if you can make it!
Ladies and Gentlemen of the internet, and especially those in the East Anglian area of Britain, you are cordially invited to:
I am honoured to be exhibiting some of my work amongst well established artists at this fine independent gallery in King’s Lynn in a couple of weeks time. All the works are inspired by the title, and will feature printmaking, photography, sculpture and mixed media pieces.
The exhibition is a King’s Lynn Festival fringe event that runs for the entire duration of the festival, which is a long established cultural celebration that attracts big names and lots of visitors to the town each year.
Greyfriars Art Space is an independent artist led initiative that provides professional exhibition space and affordable studio workspace, directly opposite the Town’s iconic Greyfriars Tower. Please support your local arts spaces and galleries.
I’ll post a little more in the week before, but for now, put it in your diary!
