WCS Presents | As part of Liverpool Art Month WCS Presents SPECTRUM: 15 solo exhibitions, with 5 Liverpool based Artists, Duos and Collectives from various stages of their careers, exhibiting each week.
A hugely eclectic, unique and exciting roster has been formed that will exhibit work that together spans the myriad of practice, process, medium and concept that makes up the landscape of creative practitioners in a ‘post-08’ Liverpool.
Noisy, political, personal, humorous, intelligent and determined – a reflection of the city’s current creative community.
Adriana Galuppo | Dan Simpkins + Penny Whitehead | Emily Speed | Jason Haynes | Julieann O’Malley | Jo Hicks | Kevin Hunt | Mike Aitken | Nicki McCubbing | Penny Davenport | Rhonda Davies | Ria Fell | Roly Carline | Tomo | Tony Knox

There is a lovely piece about Cardboard Folly on SevenStreets website at the moment. Images are from Rebecca Foster, me and Nick Cass.
Thanks very much guys.
From Wednesday 22nd to Sunday 26th September, I will be resident in the Cooperative space on Renshaw Street in Liverpool. I’ll be there from 1-5pm every day except Saturday, so please come and see me if you can! I’ll be working on my new publication, ‘Cardboard Folly’ and have invited various artists to come and work with me during the week so we’ll be scrawling things down, cutting, sticking and general plotting!
You can find the space here: http://www.thecooperative.info/
On Sunday afternoon there will be a discussion group around artists’ books and self-publishing from 2 – 4pm, accompanied by tea and cake of course. Everyone welcome!
Just a reminder that the Liverpool Art Prize is only on for one more week, so do go and see it if you can – I’m not sure whether the work will be kept afterwards as it is just so big.
A few projects are being plotted at the moment, but I am currently busy finishing my year as bursary holder at Yorkshire Sculpture Park. I am making a limited edition book to mark the end of the year, so next week will be full of paper cuts and swear words.
The end of July and August are marked for the studio and some small projects, so looking forward to getting cracking on some new work.
I’m very happy to have been shortlisted for the Liverpool Art Prize 2010 along with Gina Czarneck, David Jacques, James Quin and Paul Rooney. The exhibition will be in June/July at Metal at Edge Hill Station in Liverpool.
I’m excited to have been chosen to take part in A Curriculum, a new residency programme at A Foundation in Liverpool, during March – May 2010.
The residency is described thus:
“The programme will be scheduled over two months and will include input from visiting artists, curators, gallerists, collectors and commissioners. A Curriculum will give participants the chance to explore a broad range of perspectives which build a picture of the artist within the wider professional context.”
I will be starting a new body of work; working towards my first ever solo show at Yorkshire Sculpture Park early in 2011. Can’t wait to get stuck in.
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.
