We go to the gallery artists edition at The London Book Fair.

I have few copies left of my own pressing of ‘We go to the gallery.’ You can buy them for £20 on my website shop The last copies will be sold at The Whitechapel London Art Book Fair in London, where many of the original paintings and drawings will go on display.
Two sequel books are scheduled for November (which explains why I have gone quiet for a year.)

Last year I exhibited a video work about a caterpillar who could not pupate, at the IDOL show of female artists in the Kunstlehaus gallery, Vienna. The show is moving to Munich, and opens this July 10th.



Parody, Piracy and Pastiche exhibition- June 2014

I have recently been working with curator Camilla Webster and cartoonist Jeremy Banx to create an exhibition showcasing various brilliant works of ‘Parody, Piracy and Pastiche’ in art and satire. The show opens on June 19th at The Cob Gallery in Camden town, London, and was created as a response to Penguin/ Ladybird books claims that my recent work ‘We got to the gallery’ should be pulped. In this instance, ‘Copyright infringement’ was used as a smoke screen for a moral condemnation of the work.

This exhibition will showcase a variety of appropriative and satirical works by different artists who work in Collage, print, video and cartoon. Copyright law is set to change in the UK, so that works of satire and parody are protected, as they are in the USA and parts of Europe. Although the law has been delayed from coming into effect on June 1st, I hope this exhibition will enable a healthy debate on the matter.

On a seperate note, ‘We go to the gallery’ is undergoing a transformation to protect it from any more claims of ‘Copyright Infringement.’ The process is a bit time consuming (yes, I’m repainting!), but it should be back in print by the end of the month. Pre-orders will be available very soon.
