ZeitgeistArt Projects Open Exhibition

Tonight I am showing with Zeitgeist Art Projects in their third annual ZAP Open exhibition.  My painting 'Lovely Period Style New Build, £380 per week' was amongst 23 artists work which was selected from 547 entries.  I am delighted to be part of this very exciting exhibition.

 Zap Open 2014 has been guest curated by Juan Bolivar, the selectors were Rosalind Davis, Annabel Tilley, Juan Bolivar and Andrew Bick.  

"This exciting new show features a rich array of painting and sculpture that take pride in cocking a 'tongue-in-cheek' snoop at the viewer"

The 23 artists are as follows:
Christian Anstice, Guy Bigland, Benjamin Deakin, Tinsel Edwards, Neill Fuller, Alistair Gordon, Luey Graves, Matthew Hill, Sofia Nathalie Kynigopoulou, Paula MacArthur, Enzo Marra, Jane Morter, James Null, Will Reid, John Richert, Greg Rook, Mark Sadler, Pina Santoro (Ellwood), Paul Smith, Kelly Sweeney, Rob Welch, Joella Wheatley, and Neil Zakiewicz

There is an online catalogue to accompany the exhibition which features essays from the selectors and Lex Thomas.

My painting: 'Lovely Period Style New Build, £380 per week' is from a series of work which explores the issues surrounding the housing crisis in London.  Annabel Tilley describes it as: "The grimmest fairytale miniature which could easily be a depiction of a stage set with a single bed, wash basin, and glaring light bulb".

The show opens tonight 6-8.30pm @
ASC Studios, Bond House, Goodwood Road, New Cross Gate, SE14 6BL

The housing crisis in London is surely a product of Thatcherism: "the Market is God"- and if the market sayeth it shall be so, then it shall be so...
