Not long now…

If feels like the art show that gave birth to this blog has been in the making for so long. Well it kind of has. The idea was born back in February of which only half the items in the show were made.

But I’m really looking forward to all my friends (and a few strangers) seeing what I’ve done. I’m equal parts elated and scared at the prospect of putting myself on display (without a drumkit to hide behind).

The first item I made was this (in July 2008):

Skateboard

The last Item made that’s going to be shown was made last Friday/Saturday/Sunday:

Salute 2

of which I made an edition of 10 prints (2 of them are already sold):

Salute 1

In between those two, I’ve got 33 other pieces on show, some of them littered throughout this blog.

I handmade 5 books documenting 12 months of what I’ve done (again, two of them are already sold), a 7 inch cover, four skateboards and all manner of things. If I haven’t already told you, it’s mainly going to be the woodblocks I have on show – a bit of a faupar seeing it’s traditionally meant to be about the print, but hey, it’s my party, I’ll do as I please! There will be about 7 or 8 prints on show but all bar 2 are in editions of 1 or 2. So to the folks who have asked if I’ll have plenty of print editions availabe, the answer is no.

The Nine Lives crew have informed me that the gallery will be open from lunchtime Friday 17th with the launch part starting at 6pm. The gallery will be open both Saturday and Sunday but the show is only around for three days.

Once the show is over I will most likely put pics of everything up here but to be honest, they look so much better in real life. It’s cool when you can run your fingers over the blocks and feel all the detail.

Anyway, I hope to see everyone next week. Check out this photo that was taken for a article in the paper. Boy oh boy, aren’t we the serious artist (NOT). 😉

    Hi Alex,
    Tom Hall introduced me to your page, it is absolutely beautiful art, I love the part you wrote about touching I know that feeling well, I carve leather and to run your fingers over it give a whole new feel/meaning to the piece you have created. Best of luck with the exhibition.
