To recap, all of the participating artists were given an identical 10×10 inch cradled timber panel by exhibition sponsor Ampersand as the medium to work on.

Update: Space//Form Group Exhibition @ Breeze Block Gallery

One of the most interesting things about curating a group exhibition of over 100 artists is getting to see behind the scenes as the artists develop their work for the show (Chloe Early seen above). Updates come constantly as the participants share their excitement about creating work for the show, and getting to see  some of the creative process that goes into the work is always a pleasure. Space//Form opens in just a couple of weeks time now in Portland at Breeze Block Gallery and here […]

Publications: ‘Cement Eclipses’ by Isaac Cordal

Isaac Cordal has a pretty unique take on street art and after seeing his work online for a while, AM recently came across some of his concrete sculptures whilst wandering around the streets of London late at night with a group of friends in Brick Lane. One of our party, who shall not be named, found out the hard way that the little concrete guys are meant to stay in their surroundings rather than being taken for home consumption, as Isaac uses a high strength […]
