Giddy 2

The private view at Core Gallery on Thursday was glorious - lots of friends had trekked to Deptford, and Mien and John were really, surreally there. The show (paintings, exquisite drawings, collages, sculpture, crochet…) is beautifully hung. My Gym turtle shines on its own small wall and with a spotlight trained on it. Tickled with love is perfect right next to a series of small, haunting paintings by Edd Pearman.
Great news: My name was called out with those of two other artists, Aly Helyer and Tom Butler. We were offered a three person-show in 2011 at Core Gallery! I am quite excited about this, not only because of the opportunity to exhibit, but by the coming together of three artists who in their very different media share sensibilities (an interest in what lies behind the surface, what creeps out from the unconscious) and can put together a coherent and challenging, vibrant show.

The exhibition at Core Gallery is open until 3 OCTOBER 2010
Mon - Weds by appointment, Thursday - Sunday 11-6pm

This is fantastic news! I am absolutely thrilled for you getting this show and then getting taken on at Core - and also getting to meet Mien.
Sometimes life just goes good.

so glad we were there! i'm thrilled your name got called out (dazed me was listening out for 'Marjojo' or i would have clapped louder). you looked great and both your Gym Turtle and Tickled with Love stood out wondrously among the rest of the show.
