So I was approached a few months ago to join an artist-run space in Shoreditch called Espacio Gallery. I would have been crazy to turn them down; the gallery is spacious, beautiful, professionally presented in and situated in an amazing location. With just over 100 members, it seemed like a great opportunity to meet a plethora of new artists from different backgrounds. Absolutely everything about this space is funded and organised by the artists. Perfect.
So now, here I am, telling you about about an upcoming group exhibition, 14 New Artists: A Leap of Faith. The title is self-explanatory really, we just wanted to be honest and simple, rather than arduously employing a catchy title that all of the work can relate to.
I must admit, I haven’t made any work for at least a year, so the work on show will be the ‘infamous’ China Town series. This will be the last time I exhibit these as I believe it’s time for closure on these sculptures, and with at least 2 more group shows later this year, I’m going to get the ball rolling on new works!
Anyway, before I ramble on any longer, here are the details you’re longing for:
14 New Artists: A Leap of Faith
Thurs 28th Feb - Tues 5th March 2013
Private View: Thurs 28th Feb 6 - 9pm
Opening Times: 1 - 7pm
Espacio Gallery, 159 Bethnal Green Road, E2 7DG
It goes without saying that it would be absolutely lovely if you could join us for the private view, if not make sure you don’t miss out on the last chance to see a few of the China Town series!
Excited to get the momentum going again!

Thanks again to Conjunction for putting on a great show last night.
Amazing performance, readings and video work amongst some beautifully curated wall work.
Catch it while you still can!
It’s been a while but…
Finally received a copy of Paperbrains #5 through the post today!
About my slightly older work which may intrigue a few of you.
OUR MISSING ZINE HAS ARRIVED!
Issue #5, due for release on May 1st, 2011 went M.I.A. last year after being sent to the wrong address. We’ve been trying to track down the order of zines ever since, and by some small miracle we can’t believe what arrived at our doorstep today!
If you would like a copy of the loooooooooooong awaited and highly anticipated issue #5 (we don’t like to brag, but think it might be our best one yet), you can grab one now from our store: http://paperbrains.etsy.com
The illustration above was designed for us by issue #5’s featured artist, Paul Johnson, who also illustrated the front cover especially for PAPERBRAINS, and who features in an in-depth interview inside.
