WET DREAMS #collage series

wet-dreams-1

For tomorrow’s group exhibition by Collagistes Collective and Creative Debuts, in association with Whitechapel Gallery First Thursdays, I have started a collage series titled WET DREAMS. The series was inspired by aerial landscape imagery and the sense one feels when viewing the land from above, whether one is viewing it from atop a mountain or from an aeroplane’s window. The above work – WET DREAMS no.1 was sadly rejected by the gallery as it was deemed too inapproriate, but you can see 3 other original collage works from the series at The Black and White Building in Shoreditch until 03 November 2016. Please pop by if you’re in the area to see #TWENTY – an exhibition full of wonderful abstract paintings and inspiring collages.

We are increasingly living in what’s referred to as a ‘mash-up’ culture: Collage reflects this. This show aims to bring together artists who cut up magazines, play on Photoshop and create from the old, the discarded and the forgotten. Context becomes king in a land where paper and scissors rock (and its virtual counterpart).

Featuring works by: Colin Barnes, Dervin Batarlo, Fiona Brown, Thisbe Casellini, Nick Cash, Gareth Halliday, Lianne Harrison, Jonathan Hood, Adrian Jugaru, Christiana Kazakou, Sarah Key, Lauren King, Abena Kissiedu, Petra Lea, Jenny Maria, Peter McAdam, Gavin Mitchell, Robson Cezar, Maria Christoforatou, Rosemary Cronin, Zach Collins, Yann Faucon, Jenny Gordon, Tony Gohagan, Claire Palmer, Ruben Rodriguez, Roshanak Rouzbehani, Tamara Staser-Meltzer, Sue Skitt, Amy Templeton, Emma Wilson
