Collage (This piece is sold)

It's been a while since I've done any paper collage but I have been doing other things such as submitting a piece of digital collage for Timglaset 6, a great arts publication produced in Sweden. I'm really looking forward to seeing my work in there and will share more information about this when it's published.

Also this year I took part in an exhibition with the Tunnel art collective. Their next show is called Mercerism, at The Crypt in London. However, I haven't been doing much else so it's with great pleasure that I have gone back to doing some work with paper collage; when it's successful I think it is one of the best ways of working and can surprise the maker as much as the viewer with the result.

Collaborative work: Dear Money

In our last show with the Tunnel collective Robin and I made some works together which was great fun and surprised us both in the sense that the work really was like some sort of progeny. We brought it forth into the world, kicking and screaming, with a character all of its own; not like our individual work at all. Somewhat punky and irreverent elements emerged in all the works we made under the collective name of 'WE' using materials such as newspaper, hardboard, PVA glue and acrylic paint.

This work was shown at the 'Hunger' exhibition that we had late last year with the Tunnel collective and now that we are in another show (Waterstones, Gower St, until 12th April) I remembered that I had not shown this work since, so here it is and it looks great hanging on our newly painted grey wall in the studio (Robin's bedroom).

I want to continue making some work together so we can learn from each other's strengths and continue to be surprised by the results.
