Here are some officialish photos of the exhibition!

After Amsterdam came my exhibition at The West House (which is still showing, if anyone hasn’t managed to see it yet!). Here are the photos from install.
The frames for the two prints above were made by Dundee based framer Ross Mathieson. If anyone is looking for frames to be made I would absolutely recommend him – both his prices and the quality of his work are unbeatable.
More to come on this – I have been so busy I haven’t had chance to take official photos!
Those of you whom have looked at my PROJECTS page recently may have noticed something exciting…
Indeed I am very excited to announce that I will be having a solo exhibition! The West House, Dundee will play host to my prints as of next week. This is also the first exhibition as part of Any. And. Or.
Kicking off Degree Show season in style the PREVIEW will be on Thursday 16th May 2013, at approx 7pm (TBC).
Continues Friday 17th May 2013 Mon-Fri 8am-midnight, Sat-Sun 9am-midnight.
All are welcome to attend!
This exhibition culminates a year of planning (on my part): On a degree show high I first suggested a show of my prints at TWH last summer, recently after they opened. Since they were still too new at the time and the paint was barely dry on the walls we didn’t proceed with anything until I was introduced to Andy Rice whilst working with Paul at the VRC. After hearing my tale he agreed that exhibitions of new and local artists’ work was the plan all along, and several months later here we are!
Since The West House will be looking for new work to hang after my show closes, this would be an excellent opportunity for any soon to be graduates, local Dundee artists and budding curators.
Hope to see you there!
A few highlights from the Printed Matter:::::/Print Process exhibition preview on Thursday.
A print focused exhibition was always an incredibly exciting prospect, but to see it for real truly made the point of how varied and free the print medium can be. No two pieces were the same, and with a range of ancient and modern techniques on show this exhibition was as interesting as it was educational. Not to mention beautifully executed! Sean and Ellis worked a miracle and transformed the Bradshaw space from ordinary animation corridor to professional gallery. All in all a great evening.
Printed Matter:::::/Print Process is open in the Bradshaw Gallery at DJCAD Mon-Fri 9am-5pm and Sat 10:30am-4:30pm until 16/3/13. I know I am biased but if you manage to see any student curated exhibition in the next few weeks then this should be it: different, professional, traditional.
This is the view from my window at work:
The river has been so beautiful lately.
