The Landfill ‘LOTS OF PICTURES, LOTS OF FUN’ wall at Pick me up, on until April 1st.
Last wednesday saw the opening of Pick Me Up 2012, the mammoth graphic art fair at Somerset House. I was invited by Landfill editions to take part in ‘LOTS OF PICTURES, LOTS OF FUN’- a new collection of works by contemporary artists inspired by the visionary legacy of Sir Eduardo Paolozzi (1924-2005) and named after his 1972 silkscreen print of the same title.
I was asked to create a work that referenced in some way Paolozzi’s visual maximalism and energy, disorienting juxtapositions and oblique political commentary. Over the past month I have been working on a weaving for the space, resulting in a tapestry collage that draws upon my research of Paolozzi’s practise, the site of somerset house/PMU and various other elements of my current interests and fascinations. I also presented a new furoshiki at the show, ‘Venice’.
More about this project soon, ‘LOTS OF PICTURES, LOTS OF FUN’ at Pick Me Up is on until 1 April at Somerset House, info here.
