This February I will be exhibiting in The Bunker Gallery's surprising and uncanny "Barbershop Space".
Located at 24 Caledonian Road, (Kings Cross, London) this space acts as an unexpected art venue exclusively for artists associated with The Bunker Gallery.
Spawned from my exploration of numerological theories and codes specific to the site, my rather scattered course of research brought me to the following poem by T.S.Eliot:
It is from this poem that I will base my installation. Chosen through an elaborate maze of number games and chance, this poem brings to question many things that I believe are relevant to the every day passer-by. Born and raised in the United States, T.S.Eliot was living in London when he published this poem (under Prufrock and Other Observations, 1917), a coincidence that seems all too appropriate for this work.
Stay tuned for more information (and images) on this work.

The art of the Jumble Sale:
Often conjuring up images of beheaded, bedraggled barbie-dolls and chipped china/glassware, it might surprise some to hear that I will be showcasing some of my priceless works at the upcoming Bethnal Green Working Man's Club LOVE-A-FAYRE Jumble Sale on the 8th of February.
Offering it's self as a showcase for new and established artists and designers, the LOVE-A-FAYRE Jumble Sale is a different breed of beast. Working as an opportunity for creatives to present their work outside of the boundaries of "shops" "jewelers" and "galleries"; LOVE-A-FAYRE Jumble Sale aims to create a neutral viewing space, where the inhabitants of the jumble are given full creative licence over how they label/categorize (or if they label/categorize) the things they put on show.
My current works being some sort of fine art/sculpture/performance/taxidermy/jewellery/accessorie hybrid, this concept suits me very well.
Sound good? Come along for the fun.
