Grande Dame Talks to Whistleblower Gallery!

There’s a new gallery in Brighton and I am very happy to be one of the represented artists. Whistleblower Gallery is Dan Hipkin’s new project. Dan is a super amazing guy and was the former head curator of ink-d Gallery, Brighton. It was Dan’s keen eye for upcoming talent that really helped put ink-d on the map. He curated shows for Ryan Callanan, Carrie Reichardt, Modern Toss, Eelus, James Cauty, Jake-Wood Evans, Eine, Jon Burgerman, Peter Kennard, Sir Peter Blake, Sarah Shaw, Dan Baldwin, Lady Aiko, Paul Scott, Matt Smith, Maria Rivans, Alex Binnie, Pinky, Petro, Jamie Hewlett, Ian Hodgson, Andy Doig, Snub, Sten & Lex, Req, and myself; as well as many more talented artists.
I sat down with him a few weeks back and discussed many things, from growing up in the deep south, to early influences, animation, embroidery and more! Click either pic or HERE to read. So excited to be a part of this new artist hub! Watch this space! oxo GD

About Last Night…

grandedameinkd Despite this awful nagging cold/cough that insists on lingering in my system, I had a quite enjoyable time at the Ink_d New Faces Private View in Brighton. Normally I find art openings that I am involved in to be somewhat awkward affairs… For me personally that is… I sometimes dont know what to say about my work… But last night I had a very nice time and made some new friends, and hopefully possible collaborators. Ink_d set up a nice glowy Grande Dame corner as seen in the pic above.

faithwardanbaldwin I also LOVE LOVE LOVE Dan Baldwins ceramic pieces, esp this vase entitled Faith War. It’s hand thrown using real gold and other glazes! So cool! As I mentioned before, the show is up until March 27th, so if you happen to be in Brighton, go check it out! Ink_d Gallery 96 North Rd, Brighton, BN1 1YE … More soon.. oxo gd
