Rudimentary Perfection – Recoat Gallery, Glasow 01/07/11

June 27, 2011

Scotland’s Recoat Gallery, Glasgow hosts the UK’s first comprehensive “Graffuturism” Exhibition titled “Rudimentary Perfection”.  Mark Lyken has curated an exhibition that pulls together an impressive group of notable international artists linked by their innovative spirit & shared graffiti heritage.

Each of these artists has ventured down unique paths in their post graffiti output & each offers a radical take on expressive, figurative & letter-based abstraction. These works, while differing in approach & execution retain the sense of movement, assured marks & imperfect beauty of graffiti itself.

The participating artists include SheOne, Duncan Jago, Jaybo Monk, Matt W. Moore, Augustine Kofie, Nawer, Morten Andersen, Poesia, Derm and Mark Lyken.

Opening Night. Fri 1st July. 7-10pm
Show runs from 2nd to the 31st July 2011.

Time for something a little bit different.

Let us introduce Frederick Selman, family member, friend and craftsman.

For many years now Fred has been wood turning for a hobby.  Completely self taught, we have seen his work grow and develop in beauty and tecnicality.

Since retiring Fred has set himself up in a studio, where he he can be found most days turning ordinary pieces of timber into magnificant works of art and functional pieces such as the ones pictured below.

These pieces and many others can be viewed and purchased at his website

So if, like us, you have run out of wall space or are looking for a unique gift for a love one be sure to pop a long and have a look.
