Open Doors Exhibition/Inspiration/Work

As you may know from my last post, this weekend was the Open Doors London: W12 Exhibition. My first public showing of my work and generally a lovely/interesting/forward thinking community initiative and art project.  Set up by Tom and Katy, it’s a project for London post codes to share places. I know it was so much work for them, and for the artists and it came together really well. There was lots of community support and lots of good feedback.

I am very proud of my work and it turned out exactly as I imagined. Lots of lovely people came to see it (including my boss at work).

It was odd to see my work next to ‘proper’ artist’s work. People who went to art school and who have exhibited before. I was surprised how well my stuff held up.

However good my work is and how proud I am of achieving my New Year’s Resolution, I found a pair of textile artists that put my work to shame. They’re doing basically what I’d love to do if I had the time/space/skill.

I have a lot of work to do. One exhibition doesn’t make an artist.

Open Doors London: W12, AKA My First Exhibition

I’ve had a very special project going on in the past few months– my first exhibition! It is with Open Doors London, a pop up gallery exploring London’s post codes. This is the first exhibition of the series and it’s based in W12, especially Shepards Bush.

I’ve made four pieces, all in black and white, and centring on Shepards Bush Green. They all have my webs of course.

I’m exhibiting with some fantastic people who I’ve not met yet, but am very much looking forward to it. If you care to see my work (and the other artists), please stop by 28 Galloway Road, in London, between 11am and 6pm, the 24th of September. Nearest tube is Shepards Bush. 🙂
