Here Today - curated by Tinsel and Twinkle

Twinkle and I are pleased to present 'Here Today' our first collaborative curatorial project!

The exhibition features the work of 11 contemporary female artists (including brand new paintings from both me and Twinkle), it opens on December 2nd at The Outside World Gallery, 44, Redchurch street. The show runs until December 8th.

Here Today's artists are taking glimpses, ideas, fantasies and facts from history and bringing them into the now.

Working with a wide range of media including painting, sculpture, found objects, drawing and multi-media, each of the artists selected for this show has a very individual practice.

The main common ground between the works is that of nostalgia, history and time gone by. Some works are political, some humorous, some emotive, surreal or aesthetically beautiful yet it is from a contemporary viewpoint that each artist considers how the past has informed our present.


Remasters opens at the Rag Factory on Heneage street on December 2nd. I have produced a piece for it which will be sold at £50, limited edition of 50... I will post a sneak preview soon! I'm also very excited to be exhibiting some new paintings at the show too.

6' Jellybaby, Agent Provocateur, Dave Anderson, Gerry Baptist, J Boy, Cartrain, Tinsel Edwards, European Bob, Giana, Natalie Hughes, Ben Oakley, Jo Peel, Mark Perronet, Jonas Ranson, Maria Rivans, Ryca, Schnulli, Snub 23, Swifty, Michelle Thompson and Twinkle Troughton....................

Have all produced a 'Remaster' ( the dark image above is Snub's) they are all in the show as quality digital prints on fine art paper approx A2 size in signed limited editions of 50 for an incredible £50 each!
