Magic, Myth and Lore at Bash Contemporary


I shall be premiering a new work for a superlative group show at Bash this coming Valentines day-which shall be a rather nice counterpoint I think to all the candy coated hearts and flowers.

Exploring a 'seedbed of possibilities from a contemporary perspective.' and 'the mystical and the consequences brought by evil while good seeks to prevail,' my piece-"Begat the Great Death and Resurrection Show", invokes the triumvirate spirit of Messianic entity, as a mere anecdote for premature existence.

The show opens February 14th at 5pm and runs through March 14th and includes members of the Copycat Violence: An Artist Collective along Sandra Sandy Yagi, Christopher Ulrich, David Van Gough, Jeff Christensen Artwork, Paolo Petrangelli, Hannah Yata, Julianna Menna, Mab Graves and Jean Pierre Arboleda. Contact info@bashcontemporary.com for enquiries.

I missed the whole Skate culture thing first time around probably because cobbled Liverpool back entry's were not conducive to freewheeling forward motion, but moreover, because I was utterly crap at it.

 That said,  La Bodega just celebrated its auspicious one year opening, and perhaps in the spirit of putting one's best foot forward, they invited all the participants to mark the decks for the occasion. 'Buddha of La Bodega'-my contribution-is a sort of homage as well as a nod to my neighbor-the almighty zen master-the horned lizard "Buddha" who is the mascot there.

The show runs until 5th February
