New Collages

I've spent the last month or so (in-between commercial jobs) making a series of new collages for Peepshow's forthcoming residency at Somerset House. I decided from the outset that I'd make all the work for the show completely by hand, without the use of the computer. I've also decided that in a world where everything is blogged, uploaded and commented on the second it's complete not to reveal anything until 'Pick Me Up' opens on March 22nd. So in the meantime here's a photo of a little bit of my desktop which features some bits that might or might not appear in pieces of work. I've been getting though the good old 10A's that for sure.

Peepshow Collective Book

The Peepshow book is finally in the shops published by Index Book. I spent a good chunk of last year co-ordinating its production with help from the Peepshow gang and many, many good people including Alex Bec, Margaret Huber & Graham Rawle (forewords), Jess Bonham & Stephen Lenthall (photography), Peter Nencini & Freya Faulkner (interviews), Fiona Macdonald (text & copy editing) and of course the wonderful Studio Emmi who designed the book and got the ball rolling in the first place. Above is the cover I art directed with Peepshow's Luke Best & Chrissie Macdonald. Photography by Stephen Lenthall.

See inside the book and buy it here.

Pick Me Up 2012

Further details of our 11 day residency at Somerset House for Pick Me Up have just been revealed over at the Pick Me Up website.

Following Rob Ryan in 2010 and Anthony Burrill in 2011, this year Peepshow Collective are artists in residence for Pick Me Up 2012. We will be presenting The Museum of Objects and Origins.

For eleven days only, we will be bringing together a collection of artefacts including drawings, objects, prints, and costumes, to be housed in our very own museum. Exhibiting items from an invented past, the collection will also be a living, growing, changing display as themed workshops with the public will create new works to fill the final few empty cabinets

We will also be hosting a series of workshops with special guests throughout the fair including:
A public print workshop (Saturday 24 & Sunday 25 March)
A Peepshow talk (Monday 26 March)
Heavy Pencil with Pete Fowler & Jim Stoten (Thursday 29 March)
A public collage workshop with artist & writer Graham Rawle (Saturday 31 March & Sunday 1 April)

Booking here, more info about Pick Me Up 2012 here.
