'FUNCY' by Caitlin Hynes, Laura Mcglinchley, Daniel Massie & Ben Martin!

After cycling up to the Suttie Art Space to see '4 BIT' I made my way down to Unit 1b Deemouth Business Centre, which is right next to where the old Limousine Bull space used to be. It was great to pull in and be met by a load of friendly faces milling about out side the metal shutters, nicely adorned with the word 'Funcy'.

What lay inside was a warren of cool spaces and great art! Each of the artists has been featured on the blog before with Caitlin, Ben & Daniel working previously as the Graduates in Residence at Grays in 2015. Laura also happened to be Graduate in Residence in 2016 and now we find them all working under one roof.

It was suprising to see new work from Laura after the amount of effort that went into her Graduate in Residence show just a few months ago. Her distinctive large scale work was matched with a fine selection of smaller pieces, almost microscopic compared to her usual scale and yet they contained the same subtlety and beauty. Next up Ben h…

'4 BIT' by Emily Binks, Paul Corbett, Sophie Ormerod & Jonathan H S Ross at GHAT!

It really is the strangest feeling going up to the hospital and not being ill or having a sore limb to get fixed. In fact the place which has been a scene of some pretty horrible memories is quickly becoming one of my favourite places to visit and its all thanks to the new Suttie Arts Space. And the great staff! Although not the most convenient pace to visit I made the effort to cycle up for the '4 BIT' opening which features some great work by 4 up and coming artists, Emily Binks, Paul Corbett, Sophie Ormerod & Jonathan H S Ross. I struck by Paul's monolithic display when I first walked in. Next up Jonathan's video piece and the remains of a copy of a classical sculpture sit on the wall. Its not til you see the sculpture being worn down that things fall into place, I stood fascinated for about ten minutes, wishing I could see the sculptures face, now erased for eternity. Sophie shows a fine collection of large scale paintings which focus on the most basic elements …

'A - 4 - 11' Exhibition by Ceres & Gmoney at Proof London!

After visiting Proof London on my last trip to London I've been keeping an eye on their output with a new show every month highlighting old and new talent from the graff / street art scene. Last month saw a meeting of criminal minds with 'A-4-11' a show featuring the work of Ceres & Gmoney. The show's title came from a shared cell number where both artists happened to serve some time under custody of her majesties finest!

"During 2012 and 2013, CERES and GMONEY spent their time locked up in various HMP establishments, including time together in Wormwood Scrubs’ cell A-4-11 for conspiracy to paint graffiti on trains. That cell, in all its limited resources, became their art studio and the work from that studio led to new techniques, ideas and innovations for both artists. PROOF is proud to present ‘A-4-11’, an exhibition of CERES’ and GMONEY’s latest, un-shown works which embody the spirit of freedom and invention in which the artists live their lives and make t…
