It was a very busy week last week. Erms arrived into Bristol from Paris on Sunday 27th May and on Monday the work began.
First up deciding the order of the paintings and marking out the walls ready to go to town with the Montana!
Tuesday – and it’s time to make a start on the show installation piece and fashion some aerosol caps out of buckets. Just for the record, DIY stores do not make downpipe in lengths that will fit into a standard hatchback car – so for any of you out there in Bristol who saw some crazy woman in a car park attacking downpipe with a hacksaw – that was me and this is why!
Great waves made on the painting front on Wednesday.
As if it wasn’t enough that the walls have eyes, it’s also time to add some skeleton hands – lots of them!
Painting done it’s time to start hanging – string, clips and a man who can tie knots desperately required (and found in the form of Aeddon who was amazing, big up and thanks for all your help).
On Friday printmaster and sticker king Stickee arrived to add some vinyl finishing touches.
Not long to go and the gallery is looking somewhat …….. unready! It’s a mad dash to the 6pm deadline and we didn’t quite make it, a little wait was necessary but we hope it was worth it.
The work is absolutely amazing and with the exception of the show print all the work that you can see in these photo’s is freehand and original, using a range of media including, gouache, permanent marker and posca. The detail is just outstanding.
All remaining original work is now available at Art-el Gallery.
The show is open until June 22nd. Thursday & Friday 11:30 – 17:30 and Friday 12: to 16:00.
Don’t miss it and please don’t mention luggage tags!!!
