Insa – ‘Self Reflection is greater than Self Projection’

Posted in Art, Artists, Photography, Shows, Events & Venues with tags , , , , on March 29, 2012 by wallkandy

A new installation to be presented by INSA and open for one evening only.  I had the pleasure of being invited along to take a few snaps a few days before the opening.  The following words are from The London and Newcastle site

INSA’s latest installation work is his most obviously paradoxical to date. Having built the INSA brand reiterating issues of the female body and commodity fetishism, here, amongst a swirling cacophony of bikini clad women and chrome the audience is assured that ‘Self Reflection is greater than Self Projection’.

Conor Harrington – Dead Meat

Posted in Art, Artists, Photography, Shows, Events & Venues with tags , , , , , , on March 4, 2012 by wallkandy

For the last few months I’ve followed Conor Harrington as he has been preparing for his recently opened solo show ‘Dead Meat’ at Lazarides Rathbone gallery.  I love watching the painting process so being able to watch this show come together has been a true feast for the eyes.

After many months of working long hours and through some pretty damn cold days and a power cut the work was finished.  The show opened Thursday 01st March to heaving gallery and a queue at the door.  For more pictures of the work and the gallery space follow the link.

‘Out of Stock’ – A Skatepark Exhibition

Posted in Art, Film & Video, Photography, Shows, Events & Venues with tags , , , , , , on August 14, 2011 by wallkandy

Right back to when we were at school Wig Worland had a passion for Skateboarding & BMX.  Most Weekends & evenings were spent as a group out on our bikes or boards come rain or shine either under a local underpass or at the adventure playground building ramps & a half-pipe.  From those days forwards the camera has been the tool of Wigs trade with his images appearing in a plethora of Skateboard, BMX & Mountain biking magazines as well as many other places.

I’ve always enjoyed Wigs work so I’m all the more excited to see him participating in ‘Out of Stock’ opening this coming Thursday at Stolenspace Gallery.

Leake Street – Sunlight Caught My Eye

Posted in Art with tags , , , , on October 10, 2010 by wallkandy

The pace of change in Leake Street is a spectacle in it’s own right.  As I arrived this morning someone was preparing their spot and by the time I left someone else had just finished their new piece in exactly the same place. I really like the vibrancy of this place, there’s always something going on & passers by generally interact. The sunlight coming through the arch fence caught my eye this morning. Some more Leake St pictures to follow.
