Lavish Entropy Photos

I have just realised that I never posted photos of my last solo show Lavish Entropy with Delphian Gallery, so here they are below.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank my fellow Delphian Gallery team for everything. Andrew Salgado for writing the amazing catalogue text. Old Blue Last Beer for supplying the drinks for the opening party. And everyone else who visited, bought works, or blogged about the show.

A5 Sketchbook Page



















I’m constantly drawing in sketchbooks and they largely never get seen. 

A few years ago a gallery rang me on a Monday and asked me if I wanted to do a show that Friday, so naturally I agreed and cut up all of my sketchbooks over the previous few years and exhibited them. I’m thinking of doing the same again soon, watch this space for more info.

From Sketch To Tape




























I rarely work from sketches, preferring to go straight in with the tape on to the glass. As well as this though, I am incessantly drawing in sketchbooks, its just that these rarely become tape drawings.

The above images are an example of when this isn’t the case. The top images is one of my sketchbook drawings (most of which are never seen or exhibited), and the bottom is electrical tape on glass. I liked the sketch so much that I decided to replicate it with tape. The tape drawing is much larger than the sketch, and is a mirror image as when I do a tape drawing I tape on to the glass and then set that in resin, then I flip it and frame it so you’re essentially looking through the glass at the tape.

Saatchi/ Hemyca Collaboration for LFW

vanitas drawingI’m excited to be collaborating with M&C Saatchi and Hemyca for London Fashion Week this September. We will be creating an installation in the M&C Saatchi offices in Soho for the models to walk on, which will involve me doing some tape art on the floor.

The above drawing is a sketchbook page that I did recently, and isn’t really related to this post but I thought it was nice so here it is.

Also I found a few APs of previously sold out prints and have added them to my shop, link above.
