Heading back to London on Saturday, just in time for Varnishing day!
Artist Statement: Gorgeous Filth #01
Gorgeous Filth #01 is an exploration of urban forms and our experience with the material of cities. Each interaction, point of surface contact or scuff, whether by design or by circumstance, is at once something removed, something revealed, and something left behind.
Her use of maps speaks to a sense of place, but it is at the same time indistinct, a kind of universal geography, the design of space within pre-existing space, and how our interactions – organic and emotional and spontaneous – collapse and become aggregate, integrated into pre-established patterns of traffic, structure, and flow.
So excited to announce that I will be having a solo show at the wonderful South Main Gallery in Vancouver, BC in July as part of the Summer Seven show. I hope if you are in the area you will join me for the opening on Saturday July 22, 3-5PM. #somasummerseven
As many of you already know, my work Gorgeous Filth 01 has been shortlisted for the Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition. This is the oldest and largest open call in the world with 12,000 submissions. I've made the first cut, and now I need to deliver my work to the RA to be juried in person.
I've got an auction up and running to help cover some costs please refer here if you'd like to know more.
