Included in the Saatchi Art Fall Catalogue

I am thrilled to have been selected to have been included in the Saatchi Art Fall 2019 catalogue, which is distributed to hundreds of thousands of recipients internationally.

My work was chosen by the Saatchi Art curators - it was a wonderful surprise to receive their email last month saying they’d picked my work from the many thousands they have listed on their site.

SOLO SHOW 30 NOV - 13 DEC 2019!

I am thrilled to announce I will be having a solo show at the fantastic Chappell Contemporary in Whitstable just before Christmas.

Opening night is Sat 30 Nov 4.30pm - 7pm and I will be there.

I’ve been making a neon (argon, really) piece especially for the show, which takes the name of the show “I am”. The glass is bent by me (though I must have bent the “m” at least 30 times to get it how I wanted it exactly right in my messy handwriting - as there are just three letters in this piece I had more time to keep redoing them and being critical about them!) and will be a piece all about the various sides of our personalities. As usual, it will contain a number of personal anecdotes and characteristics pertaining to my own strengths and weaknesses, as well as things I see more generally in society.

There will also be a video at the show demonstrating me making this piece. I am really shy about videos like this as always see my imperfections and things I could do better in them when working with the glass but there will be a video at the show so you can watch me on that video actually making the neon that will be unveiled that night! I do post videos in my insta stories now and then but they are few and far between.

I am really grateful to Paula Chappell for offering me such a fantastic slot for a solo show. All being well, as well as the brand new exclusive neon release there will also be a new exclusive print release too (as long as I get myself into gear!).

New Jewellery Coming in October

I’m excited to announce that the latest new word necklaces in the Rebecca Mason x Esa Evans collab should be out in October. If you check my online shop, there is also the chance now to buy one of the “flaws`’ samples (there were 3).

After a few refinements, we have our final samples ready for the following:

Money…control - for this one I used the same font as the one I use on the background of most of my neon pieces. I just had to adapt it to form the template so it would work as a necklace/in metal. My neon ‘money” (money talks: undersharing)piece has a human sized dog collar and lead hanging off it with the word “control” on it and I wanted to capture that in the necklace by having the word control hanging off the money part of the necklace. I’ve been wearing the first sample A LOT and completely love this piece. It’s a bit darker than the others.

Consume - for this one I used the same font as the one I use on the background of most of my neon pieces. I just had to adapt it to form the template so it would work as a necklace/in metal. I also love this as it can have several interpretations.

We are working on further samples of the following, which we hope to release before Christmas. There are a couple of samples currently in the online shop if you can’t wait!:

Flaws- for this one I used the same handwriting as I use on the “Take Me As I Am” flaws neon. I just had to adapt it to form the template so it would work as a necklace/in metal. I also love this as it can have several interpretations.

NEW NEON PIECE COMING SOON: Gaslighting (not the final title)

The glass “gaslighting” is from 2018 but it has taken me some time to decide what to do with the background. In the end I went for something simple which I think clearly delivers the message.

Aiming to have this one finished mid Sept at the latest, with prints due out mid to late October.

here is a bad mock up of it….

COMING SOON - NEW FINISHED PIECE provisionally called "Content?"

Am hoping to get this finished and released by mid to late September. I’ve bent the glass and sent the background to print, so now I’m just waiting for the glass to be filled with gas and for my background to come back from the printers/framers so I can attach the neon light part to it.

Expect prints later in the Autumn.

“DATA” will be in neon in my handwriting rather than the font shown below (actually, it will be argon and mercury filled tubes). It’s about big data and the internet (a topic I’ve covered quite a bit in the past) and the FAANGs (Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Google). Munch munch munch. Is it too late to fix this? Probably.

Here’s the background print, I am just waiting for my glass to be processed for me (filled with gas) now and then I’ll finish it.

COMING V SOON! NEW NEON LIGHT WORKS: THE ILLUSION OF CHOICE? (1) AND THE ILLUSION OF CHOICE? (2)

I’ll be launching two new neons on 12th Sept. One is called THE ILLUSION OF CHOICE? (1) and the other is THE ILLUSION OF CHOICE? (2). They both use the same neon light word (in this case the gas is actually argon with a little mercury) i.e. “dystopia”, which flashes from “dystopia” to “stop”. One of the copies will be launched at BSMT space’s relaunch show Dystopia on 12 Sept.

For more info on either piece drop me a line. Here are some in progress shots so you get a taster of what is coming. I am aiming to finish the piece by Tues 3 Sept. Follow my insta for more info on these pieces.

work in progress:

Update 6 Sept 2019: here is the finished piece:
