12 Years Gone.

Twelve years ago today we lost Richard Warwick to AIDS related illness, so if you're in a position to raise your glass this evening (or indeed at any point today) then do, to the late, great Mr Warwick.

'A Study in Portraiture: Act II'

Heather Cantrell
Curated by Caryn Coleman
25th november - 19 December, 2009

From John Baldessari to David Yow, Heather Cantrell has always looked within her own tribe of artists, curators, and musicians in her exploration of community and subcultures. Now, she looks to the London art scene with A Study in Portraiture: Act II as part of her international enthnographic study that simultaneously documents, subverts, and reveals identities of the art world through performative portraiture. Having debuted in Los Angeles this summer, MOT International plays host to 'Act II' in this ongoing series, transforming the gallery into an 'in-house' photography studio for the duration of the exhibition.

Another birthday, another birthday card.

Here is a card that I made for Alexander Karotsch earlier this year.

Happy Birthday Fernando!

This isn't super clear as it's in pencil, but I made this for my friend's birthday, which was last Wednesday. This is his website:
I said to him that I love how playful his illustrations are, they look like he really enjoys what he does (which he does).

Falling into Place.

Falling Into Place
by Heather and Ivan Morison (2009)

In recent works, Heather and Ivan Morison have explored the currency of shelter and the escape vehicle - things that can either transport you physically or mentally away from the here and now and help avoid, or offer refuge, from future disaster. The film 'Dark Star' (2006), and the timber structures 'Pleasure Island' and 'Fantasy Island' (2007), took their starting points from the American house-truck movement of the 1960s and 1970s, and the hand-built-shelters associated with the 'back-to-the-land' movements of the same period. These interests are continued in a series of newly commisioned sculptures and shelters.

Continuing their explorations and investigations into cultures of self-sufficiency, this publication brings many elements of the artist's research together with sketches and drawings, through a narrative which is part-science fiction, part-history, part-autobiography and part-fairytale.

The publication has been generously supported by the Arts Council England, the University of the West of England, and the Henry Moore Foundation.

Falling in to Place will be launched at Artwords Bookshop (20-22 Broadway Market, London), 6.30 - 8.30, Tuesday 15 December.

"Subtext just beneath the surface makes life interesting, but it can also cause people to be misunderstood."

Using the reproduced image as raw material, the artists recontextualise content found in books, magazines and films to create alternative narratives that reflect on contemporary culture.
