Thinking Fuse

FUSE is an exhibition devised and curated by myself currently running at Access Space until 31st March. Yesterday I hosted the opening evening.

The aim of FUSE – which is a series of exhibitions currently in it’s 3rd incarnation – is to initiate collaborations and relationships with other sets of artists which in turn develops a positive and supportive network of art, artists and creative outputs. In the spirit of forging such relationships, the theme of the exhibition is simply the word ‘fuse’ which each artist may interpret however they wish. This has lead to some diverse, intriguing and very high quality responses, with themes such as alchemy, travel, emotion, landscape, cartography, psychology, human behavior, portraiture and fragrance all cited as sources of inspiration.

Each work is strong enough to be contemplated individually, while simultaneously being harnessed by the theme, allowing for a coherent and high-quality exhibition that has so far impressed audiences.

If you missed the opening, you can catch FUSE at Access Space, Wednesday – Friday 11-6 up until 31st March.

Returning to Crowdfunding

A mere 8 months since my solo crowdfunding effort, I find myself once again involved in such a campaign! This time though, it’s a group effort.

Click here to support SCI Art-Athena

SCI – an arts collaborative I am a part of – are looking to raise funds for the opportunity to exhibit internationally. Reaching our goal will enable at least two members of the collaborative to travel to Athens

This is a great opportunity for SCI to develop as a collaborative, and will also gives you a fantastic opportunity to purchase some unique and handmade pieces of work: From paper drawings to etchings, and from paintings to mixed media collages, this crowdfunding campaign has something for everyone. Your contribution will also support the arts and offer the chance for a group of artists to gain new opportunities and new ways of developing their careers, which is a brilliant thing to give.

We’ve made a fantastic start – already raising a quarter of the funds we need. But we still need your help! Any contribution or promoting of the campaign would be very appriciated. And I’d like to say thank you so much to those who have already engaged with the project.

You can find more information about the project and how to donate here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/sci-platforms-project-at-art-athena-2016#/

Many thanks!
