I’m very happy to be included in this year’s Drawing Biennial at Drawing Room, London. The event is also a fundraiser, so all works are for sale, starting at £250. Drawing Biennial 2013 works will be available to view online from 10am Thursday 18 April and over 200 artists have contributed so loads to choose from.
To accompany the MAKE SHIFT exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture park, I have made two limited edition works for sale there (have a look on their website soon!).
Egg is a cast plaster work in an edition of 21 and is priced £120. It’s roughly 3 inches high and comes safely packed in a small wooden box.
If I can’t see you, you can’t see me is a four-colour screen print on balsa wood and grey board. Also an edition of 21, this is priced at £70 unframed and there are also two framed prints available at £110.
Here it is finally; the resulting animation from the drawing I did at PSL in August. It clearly has issues, like some wobbles, focus and other things, but as a first attempt I am going to try and let those things go and just enjoy the destruction.
There are also some images of the project and collaborative drawing evening at PSL on their Drawing Shed blog
here’s the blurb: Emily Speed will create a cyclic drawing on the exterior of the shed over 4 days. Starting with proposals/sketches for structures – reminiscent of bulidings – which are prevalent in her work, Speed will then explore the physical impossibilities of these structures and the drawing will change to show construction, collapse and repair before perhaps collapsing again.
It is finally done – 88 copies of a second edition are available (actually, more like 60 as some have gone already), with an extra screen printed inner to make it a bit more special. £7 from me and at Lancashire Zine, Artists’ Books and Multiples Fair in January, add £2 for post and packing otherwise.
Happily settled in my new studio space, I am working on some new drawings to go in an exhibition at the Lost Soul and Stranger Service Station (also known as the Old Barber Shop) at the Bluecoat in Liverpool.
The exhibition is open from 21st May – 19th June and the opening is on the 21st May from 6pm onwards. Venue can be found here.
