Erms ‘Everything begins with an E’ solo show @ Art-el Gallery

June 5, 2012

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!!!

The Perils of the Modern Alchemists – Art Exhibition, Cardiff

March 5, 2012

So yesterday we took a trip over to sunny Wales (sunny and very VERY windy) to take in a show that has been curated by Colour Doomed and Helen Bur.

Having secured a disused warehouse in the lower levels of the Capitol Shopping Centre in Cardiff’s City Centre they have worked hard to fill the space with work from artists, most of whom are students from The Cardiff College of Art and Design.  Paintings, installations, and video are currently on display and will be until the 8th March (open 10am – 6pm).

We had a great afternoon and really enjoyed the show – here are some snippets.

Part of the video installation included a video of ‘The Walking Gallery’, a second one of which was taken out around Cardiff on St David’s Day as part of the exhibition.

Take a look at the video – such a great idea (contains swearing!)

Friday 10th February – King of Paint, Bristol

February 7, 2012

“3DOM A.K.A MIKE22” – Solo show by 3Dom @ King of Paint, Bristol on Friday stick you’re head through the door and take a look into the mind of 3Dom.

“3Dom began studying illustration at the Bower Ashton campus of U.W.E. and in his spare time began his love affair with graffiti.

After honing his skills with a can on the streets of Bristol, 3Dom is here at the King Of Paint gallery with a solo show entitled “ 3Dom a.k.a. Mike 22 “.

This show is a comprehensive study of Mikes’ last ten years in the graff world, his journey and a look at all the world through his eyes. A visual spectacle and a feast to behold.

His work could be described as a childs cartoon, mixed with semiology, surrealism and social conscience, something for children to enjoy and adults to dissect”.

Location – King Of Paint, 9a Haymarket Walk, Broadmead, Bristol, BS1 3LN

MARK LYKEN SOLO SHOW OPENING – “THE LONELINESS MACHINES”

Throughout January Mark Lyken, has been Resident at Recoat Gallery, creating an installation & a series of original paintings for his solo exhibition.

The show will consist of a series of new works which he describes as “Abstract Meditations on the Digital World.”

As our interactions and communications become progressively more mediated and facilitated by technology, our connections to one another seem increasingly fragile. As we become increasingly connected through personal technology and social networks are we becoming alienated from each other and ourselves?

He will create a mural in the space and compose a piece of music that will be available for free download from Gamma Proforma from the opening onwards ( www.gammaproforma.com/lonelinessmachines ). 

The exhibition will open 7-10pm on 10th February and runs 12-6pm Tues to Sun until 4th March.

GP2011: Dual Channels 26:08:11 Mark Lyken

August 23, 2011

Friday 26 August @ XOYO, London – 6.30pm

Exploring duality in Art & Music, Gamma Proforma’s GP2011 events feature three distinct UK artists with a common thread, they operate on Dual Channels. Three events at XOYO London during August/September 2011. Each event launches a set of Giclee prints and a soundtrack album by the featured artist. The artists will be in attendance and will perform works at the events. The first 30 attendees at each event will receive a limited edition artist’s pack that includes a signed Giclee print and hand made soundtrack. Support from DJ’s Noel Watson & Nate Thompson plus guests.

Part 2. The Art & Sounds of Lyken

Lyken’s layered & gestural work captures turbulent events & cycles along the timeline of a living cosmos. These are worlds within worlds, chemical universes revealed at a microscopic level. His music reflects this same detail, decayed sounds and transmissions shimmer in space, a melodic sea of scientific musical patterns that chime with that certain universal emotion.
