Monster Procession

November 21st, 2013

A Baker’s Dozen, gives one more than a standard dozen thus avoiding short measure; also an insurance against being accused of such which could carry severe penalties back in the day. Here is the final picture of my “Baker’s Dozen’ created for the exhibition at Noa’s Bakehouse. Check out the Tower of Refuge making an appearance at the top!

Noa Baker’s Dozen Exhibition

November 5th, 2013

NOA WEB Poster

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have a very exciting exhibition coming up at a superb venue… Noa’s Bakehouse in Douglas! Noa’s is the sourdough bakery and coffee house which is kneading up a perfect daily bake (Mon-Sat 8-4) to accompany their ever expanding repertoire of sandwiches, soups, curries, stews and chillies! The title and number of new pieces to be created for the exhibition sprang to mind with the phrase”Baker’s Dozen”.

These 13 new pieces have been created following on from the wet work printing  techniques developed in the previous ‘Carpet Pages’ exhibition. Once again the imagery is childlike and playful. Overall a positive, optimistic light prevails through the work but this is at times interwoven with dark passages familiar to all lovers of myth, folk lore and fairy tales. The important difference this time being the process of painterly combining collage and decoupage was achieved entirely in digital media.

I feel proud to be showcasing this fine art exhibition at Noa’s Bakehouse and delighted to be a part of the dynamic experience that Miles, Pippa and their vibrant team have created.

Check back over the next week as I will post some tasty images to wet the appetite for the full exhibition: 14th of Nov – 14th of Dec.

The Buggane’s Cronnane

March 23rd, 2011

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A soundtrack directly inspired by the Carpet Page art work has been created by local musician Buggane of Ballagroove Records. This piece is entitled Buggane  Cronnane. In Manx Gaelic Cronnane means drone, hum, buzz, babble, purr, whirr.

It is very apt that both the audio and visual aspects to this exhibition use the same techniques – collage/layering and sampling of found imagery.

Visitors to the exhibition at the Sayle Gallery will have the opportunity to listen to this kindred work whilst viewing the carpet page prints.

This CD released through Ballagroove Records is a limited edition run of 100 copies.
