Up there with Martin Parr?

I have entered another Photography competition – this time, Art on a Postcard. The Hepatitis C Trust’s fundraising arm, Art on a Postcard will transform into Photography on a Postcard for the month of October. We plan to replicate the success we’ve had in the art world with photography and we are looking for upcoming talent…

MEH (juxtaposed)

Mirrorcity? EH? Paul and I visited the Mirrorcity exhibition at the Hayward Gallery this evening. It’s billed as: MIRRORCITY explores the effect the digital revolution has had on our experiences. London is one of the world’s centres for contemporary art. MIRRORCITY shows recent work and new commissions by key emerging and established artists working in…

Katnip Kartel

Two years ago on my birthday I attended a LOLCat exhibition in London with a very good friend of mine, Enda. I fell in love with a work of art from FlyOTW which featured a cat called Fudge that was part of a collection known as the Katnip Kartel.  This is a series of photographs of cats in…

Captured for eternity…

I went to the Pick Me Up exhibition with my friend Paul today and they had an Artomatic. It’s a photo booth without the camera. Instead one of the artists exhibiting is in the booth and captures your portrait. We decided to give it a go and really like our momento of the day. As…

The Light Show

Tonight I have enjoyed a lovely evening spent on the South Bank with good friends. Enjoying the summer sun, people watching with some Pimms and the intriguing Light Show at the South Bank Centre. The show was interesting and there were some inspiring exhibits on show. I can see why the it has been so…

The Golden Book

If I want to find out what The Golden Age is all about, I have some reading to do… I purchased the deluxe version of the cd as it is bound in a good leaf volume complete with illustrations and the full story. I didn’t expect such a beautifully crafted work though. Nor did I expect…

Art and cupcakes

I visited the LOLCats Exhibishun ( #lolcatexhibishun ) in London today with Enda and I must say I have never had so much fun at a gallery before. Each piece of work is humorous and I believe you either get the pieces or you don’t (some of the critical reviews have been rather scathing). It…

No Summer Exhibition for me…

The Royal Academy sent out a note inviting me to enter this years Summer Exhibition. I have entered a paintings every year for the last 4 years and have decided to pass this year. I have not painted anything new since we moved house and I have little faith in my previous works as the…

Why doesn’t it rain on me..?

I visited the Rain Room installation with friends tonight as London's Barbican Centre. Oddly it's a room where is constantly rains, inside. When you walk into the rain you don't get wet! It's a fascinating experience. Friends can be a meter away and it's raining heavy between you and yet you're both dry. A must…

A lovely, arty day in the country

On Saturday we drove to Waddesdon Manor where we met up with Chris and Rob for a lovely day on the estate. Baron Rothschild has been busy arranging deals with Christies to house major artworks in the grounds. As you can see we had fun interacting with them yesterday.
