Excited to announce....

Colossal Space is a new personal curatorial project.

Colossal Space is a 55mm x 55mm x 95mm glass case exhibition space. A hand picked selection of artists are invited to use the space any way they desire. The installation or object can be something found or created. However, as important as the internal space, is the external. The exhibiting artist is asked to specify exactly where the exhibition space is placed. For the duration of a one day or night exhibition the space will be positioned in a place that is completely of the artist’s choosing. The expectation being that there is some dialogue between the internal and external, that both are considered with equal importance and that one enhances the other conversely.

When exhibitions will be held is up to the participating artist. On what day, for how long and at what time of the day adds further potential to artists to mould the environment of the show.

Each exhibition will have an opening and will be documented on a specific blog here.

Empty Vessels

Pots I have thrown and painted up and put up for sale at Pick Me Up in our 'Fresh Ones' space. Want to do more with pottery, especially in terms of making them illustrative, attempting to tell some kind of narrative using the object as a vessel itself (!). Definitely works in progress of a working process.
