First Cut – Paper at the Cutting Edge is coming to Southampton

I live in Southampton on the south coast of England and we have some wonderful galleries and museums. One of which is the SeaCity Museum, which has had some excellent exhibitions on since last year.

A new exhibition is coming in October is the First Cut – Paper at the Cutting Edge. Which is on tour from the Manchester Art Gallery. It will be at the Pavilion in the SeaCity Museum.

The First Cut features works by over 30 international contemporary artists who radically rethink the possibilities of working with paper. It explores how artists transform paper, through cutting, folding and sculpting, into amazingly powerful creations.

I really urge you that if you are close to Southampton between 11 October 2013 and 12 January 2014 you really should go. The exhibition won’t be going to London so if you want to see these amazing sculptures come down and see it here.

For updates I suggest you follow @SeaCityMuseum on Twitter for some preview pictures of the exhibition going up.

National Exhibition

The Ood

Inspired by Dr Who

I have been busy since last posting here, I have a picture in a National Exhibition. I’m really happy and rather surprised. I saw an invite from the National Media Museum¬† asking for contributions to its Dr Who 50th anniversary show. So having created this picture loosely based on the Ood from the show I thought why not and sent them a speculative email.

I wasn’t really expecting an email back but I got one and they were interested! I was happy but cautious as nothing is set. I got it framed and then waited to see if it was still needed. After a couple of agonising weeks I got the email to send it to Bradford for inclusion in the exhibition.

One of my humble doodles will be in the Dr Who and Me: 50 years of Dr Who fans exhibition 23 November 2013 to 9 February 2014 and I am over the moon.

I have had a lot of encouragement to do this from Sam and The Art House who have made me realise that other people might want to see my scribbles.

So now the problem is how do I get to Bradford to see it in place!
