ELECTRIC CRAZYLAND – TONIGHT!


Tonight is the night! I can’t believe it! Nearly got it all together! Just going down in a bit to fix a couple of things and hang the flat screen telly. I was just going to have a projector on the night showing visuals, but then it hit me – no – get a flat screen tv and have all the animations on a USB stick and play it throughout the duration of the show. The animation thing is so integral to my working process. In fact you will see many of the works I have in frames moving in the videos – it’s how I roll!

Here’s a few sneak peak pix. Big thanx to Oliver Crowther, Allen Clarke, & Jo Perfect for the hanging help!

How bout them lightboxes eh? Rad! So so so pleased! They really work in that space so well! Yay! Anyhoo, the other day I thought I would make a little ad for my iphone app to play in between the videos. Of course my app is the same name as the show – I kinda name every thing Electric Crazyland, it just kinda fits my lifestyle ya know? Ha! Anyhoo, it was just meant to be a lil visual addition for my show, but then I thought “why not upload it to Facebook? But then realised – it’s a minute long – I gotta have a sound track! I dug around my folders looking for old jam/ riffs – and then I found my old Soho Radio Theme Song of the same name – Electric Crazyland! I threw it in at the last minute – and it just happened to be the same length and the images change on the beat! Total accident – meant to be OBVS! So turn it up & enjoy! And if you are free tonight & in the East Sussex area – pop in and experience my colourful Electric Crazyland vibes! Ok ciao for now! Toodles oxo GD

Grande Dame Art on Coastal Currents Official Poster!

Coastal Currents Arts Festival Official 2017 Poster is out & what a pleasant surprise to see my work from Point of Decay Installation in Bottle Alley (Coastal Currents 2015) as a featured image! WOW! WOW! WOW! It’s the black and white columns to the left! Super proud! Yay! The festival is the biggest arts festival in the Hastings/ St Leonards Area which runs from Sept 1 – Oct 2! Really looking forward to the Zeroh installation, they always pull out the stops and were the brains behind Point of Decay. I had originally planned to do an open studio during the month, but then the offer to have my show at The St Leonard Pub came up at the same time, so I did that instead. Friendly reminder – my show – Electric Crazyland opens next week Weds Aug 23rd and should be up for a few months. Going to be a fun PV – I can assure you, so if you are in the area this coming weds – pop down and say hello! New work – including 2 light boxes, plus mad visuals, screen prints, hand painted originals limited editions and more! So see you there! oxo GD
