A week from now Martyn Woods and I will be setting up shop at Boxpark, Shoreditch for out inaugral gallery pop-up. Initially showing just our own work it is hoped that we will continue to grow a roster of artists and pop-up in various places in and around London. You will find us at Unit 15 on Bethnal Green Road. We open the doors at 11:00am on Tuesday 4th April and there will be drinks to celebrate from 5:00pm on Wednesday 5th. We now have a website live and an Instagram account.
Over a month without an update! How did that happen. Probably because I have been painting and there have been lots of of domestic things to deal with: Electricians, refits and decorating plans.. My Boxpark pop-up with Martyn Woods is just over two weeks away and I have 15 paintings for that on the go and three more to start on. They are all loosely based around a grid derived from doors of a shipping container. Boxpark is called that after the nickname for shipping ports and is constructed out of repurposed shipping containers. So it seemed kind of fitting to use them as a theme. The one above is one of 10 6" cradled wood panels [50mm deep] that can be displayed stacked in a shipping container stylee or just hung alone in a more traditional way. I also have four 12" panels and two each of 16" and 20" sizes . I may well take some other work too, after we are open. The black and white chevrons are a nod to Boxpark's branding. Anyway, can't stop... There's a eadline looming and there's plenty of shop admin to do as well as the painting.
