Four Fish of The Apocalypse

Breeze Block Gallery, Portland
Solo Show by Greg Eason

“God – What you done?

Greg – I used religious and apocalyptic imagery to deconstruct The Book of Revelation – Chapter 6 of the King James Bible.

God – Why?

Greg – It’s a good read, and I find a lot of inspiration within it. I’ve always enjoyed religious imagery – it’s quite beautiful, and powerful.

God – Hmmm, okay. But, there are no fish in that bit of text.

Greg – Think so.

God – Nop.

Greg – Sorry.

God – Don’t do it again.

Greg – Okay, can’t promise anything though.

God – Bye.

Greg – Bye.” — Greg Eason

The Hand.Written.Letter.Project.

Exhibition, Just Seen

Launch

Tonight sees the Manchester launch of Craig Oldham’s ‘The Hand.Written.Letter.Project’ at 2022, the basement, 20 Dale Street, Manchester, M1 1EZ from 6pm onwards running until the 20th November.

That excitement you feel when you hear an envelope hit the door matt (and it’s not a bill) and realise it’s actually a penned piece of wonderment that someone has agonised over or just a quick note from your mam reminding you to eat fruit is difficult to parallel.
The sound of an email bleeping into your inbox attempts to but it’s not quite the same is it.
Tonight sees the Manchester launch of the The Hand.Written.Letter.Project. exhibition, if you’ve not picked the book up from which the series of shows has spawned yet then it is a wonderful collection of (hand written) letters from the desks of the likes of Michael Bierut, Milton Glaser, Stefan Sagmeister, Wim Crowel and the list goes.

See you at the bar.

DAMIEN HIRST & FELIX GONZALEZ-TORRES | CANDY

Blain|Southern last night opened Candy, an exhibition bringing together the work of celebrated artists Damien Hirst & Felix Gonzalez-Torres.

Featured in this exhibition is Gonzalez-Torres’ “Untitled”, 1992, a unique sculpture made of candies individually wrapped in variously coloured cellophane. The Visual Candy paintings, which were made between 1993 and 1995, were created as a direct riposte to an art critic who had dismissed Hirst’s Spot Paintings as ‘just visual candy’.

The show runs until November 30th

Attended, Exhibition

Lazarides & The Vinyl Factory opened their compelling new off-site experience inviting sixteen artists to take over 180 The Strand, an ominous old office block in central London. “BRUTAL explores the brutality of the times we live in, how this is reflected in the objects around us and our perception of the world”. Definitely worth booking your place. And apologies for the sketchy photography, It was dark down there and we were being intimidated by loitering ninja kids.
