Displacement is in progress right now, a show on a gloriously dark and rusty metalwork workshop alive with the marks of industry and the rich colour of manual toil, the show opened (rather triumphantly) last Thursday evening. There’s lots of words, photos, thoughts on Displacement and such over, Displacement? Words? Another show…. art…. blah blah… this… that… words? What’s words worth?…. there goes the neighbourhood…. beer…paint…. rust…. people…. words… friends…old friends, new friends…. foes, toes, stepping on toes, artists, egos… words… read it all over on the Organ pages. Expect more about the show here on these pages that are more focused on my art than the covering of art, music and events in general that happens on the Organ pages in a little bit. More thoughts on my part in Displacement in a bit, that and the #ArtDrop pieces and the leaf growth outside Love the photos of the happy people who picked up one of the #ArtDrop pieces last Thursday evening.
One last shot from the On The Brink show in those woods over in Leytonstone. The show ended yesterday, big thanks to all who came along, to Mary Knight, Brett Banks and the organisers, the hosts at the Quaker’s meeting house, to the other artists who took part in what was a rather rewarding show to be part of, and thanks to everyone who came along, especially this young robin who visited during the week (photo credit Mary Knight). Next stop Hastings and the second leg of the Art Car Boot Fair next Saturday afternoon
The piece left hanging in the trees as part of the On The Brink show, is made up of objects found abandoned on the streets or skips of East London. Unwanted pieces of wooden offcut, rope from the handles of fashion bags, pieces of a broken blue wooden pallet, an old abandoned hanging basking squatted by a young sycamore tree… The parts of the installation are now back in my studio, I expect they will go back out on the street in sometime soon
