Light Bite: An exhibition of Miniature Magnetic Artworks

Nottingham is the latest city to be colonised by Alban Low’s ever-growing fridge magnet art empire. As part of yesterday’s Light Night 2011 event, over two hundred city street lights have been adorned with miniature magnetic artworks, created by  a diverse range of artistes.  Denizens of and visitors to Nottingham can admire these creations in context and, if they wish, take them home to put on their own fridges.

I’m one of the featured artists this time round. You can see the whole set of images here.  I’m responsible for pics 209-213.

Paintwork#3: Repetition


Mark E Smith as a tree

Belated acknowledgement that Paintwork, the Praxis Hagen gallery’s travelling exhibition of art related to The Fall, has landed in Hamburg.

I have four marker pen portraits of Mark E Smith in the show and judging by these photos it looks like another excellent, eccentric collection of work.

Paintwork #3 runs till 31st Nov at the Galerie Borchardt, Hopfensack 19, 20457 Hamburg

The Fall play Hamburg on the 5th Nov.
