Facebook Artists' Page.


You know I've been on Pinterest for a while, right? On top of social media in all kinds of ways, 45 followers on instagram....Then just last week, if that wasn't saying 'overexposed' loudly enough, I went and got myself a Facebook artists' page. I know, I'm like all over this platform thing. The final nudge came when I was scrolling down my standard Facebook page in my regular brain dead, time wasting stupor, and out jumped a post for the Luxembourg Art Prize. I have no idea what made me think entering the Luxembourg Art Prize would be a good use of my time but before I knew it  I was thinking Yes! I want to be exhibiting to an international audience at the Galerie Herve Lancelin and then before you could say ‘Herve who?’ I was paypal-ing them my family's last 76 Euros instead of paying the orthodontists bill.

Anyway somewhere along the exhaustive, multi step, online entry form they asked for my Facebook Artist's page. I better get one of those, I think, that won't take long. Or be confronting. Or make me feel like I'm putting myself...out...there.

No worries. It will all be worth it when I travel to Luxembourg and win the prize. I cannot wait to meet Herve Lancelin himself as he shakes my hand and hands over the the 25,000 euros needed to begin my new body of work!

Comic Book Heroines for Prada Spring 2018.

While 1960s comic book heroines featured on bags, coats, cardigans, shirts and dresses for Prada's Spring 2018 collection there's a kind of 1980s subtext here too. With the PRADA font, the colour palette - lots of bright red and electric blue — plus those silhouettes. It's hard then not to think of a 1980s night club when I see this collection — the underground print press with screen printed posters  and thus a little bit of punk too. All very pre-Madonna. Yay Prada!











Studio Space - Jodie Cunningham.

I love images from artist studios and the spaces where they work. This is the amazing studio and gorgeous work of artist Jodie Cunningham. Jodie works in so many different mediums — often recycled materials and always with attention to colour. If you love colour this space is particularly divine.




Tim Walker's Egon Schiele inspired editorial for i-D magazine.

Tim Walker's recent work for i-D magazine is recognisable instantly for its source inspiration, artist Egon Schiele. Along with stylist Jakob J they do a gorgeous job recreating Schiele's bright, but sparingly used palette and the postures his models struck. Brilliantly cast too are the models, particularly Schiele's wife and model, Edith Harms.
