I'm very excited that I have some work in London in an exhibit entitled The Joyful Bewilderment. The exhibit features the works of some of my favorites: Craig Atkinson, Holly Stevenson, James Jarvis, Josh Petherick, Marcus Oakley, Nigel Peake, Ryan Jacob Smith, Simon Peplow, Steven Harrington, Supermundane and so many other amazing thing makers. The opening reception is on Thursday October 2nd from 7p until midnight at Rough Trade East Gallery located at: Dray Walk, Old Truman Brewery, 91 Brick Lane, London, E1 6QL
A little about the exhibit from the curators:
"The Joyful Bewilderment" showcases the work of a group of like minded image-makers. This exhibition can be seen as an expression of these artists compulsion to create. Fundamentally, the artists in the show all share an essential motivation - to explore the possibilities of enhancing everyday life by making magic from the mundane. The works in the show utilize modest and direct means - including works in pencil, paint and ink along with photographic works which record and celebrate everyday happenstances.
Thanks to the amazing Simon Peplow for his orchestration of all this!
