Miniscule Part 2


I will be showing a new miniature work painted with nail polish at the Miniscule Part 2 show at Cross Lane Projects

Miniscule Part 2
Curated by Vanya Balogh

23 March to 18 May 2019

Preview Friday 22 March, 6-8pm
Talk by the curators Thursday 18 April, 7pm

Cross Lane Projects
Cross Lane, Kendal,

Exhibition details
Miniscule Part 2 could be regarded as a bijou sociological experiment; over 220 artists have taken up the invitation to submit a diminutive art object of any genre or media but with one simple proviso: the maximum size of the work is that of the common matchbox; 2” by 1.5”.
Thinking small and making small is a unique position and while some artists specialise in the miniature or reductive ideas and might consider it a regular part of their creative output, many more do not. For most of the artists participating in Miniscule, the format is an intriguing challenge; a stimulus or provocation; potentially a playful distraction from their standard artistic practice. The exhibition includes established and upcoming artists from the UK and around the world.
This diverse exhibition presents carefully considered, imaginative but seriously tiny, fragile art objects – an exquisite mass of breeding minisculism. As curator Vanya Balogh describes “Here we will find a toy-box destruction derby of high-concept in abject competition, a kaleidoscope cross-cut of current making and thinking but one set in an equal arena, although admittedly it may be biased towards the ‘less is more’ camp. Is an object to be judged by its size? Does size really matter? Can we say that the London Eye has more impact on the art world than a bicycle wheel?”
Miniscule Part 2 is a sequel to the exhibition Miniscule curated and devised by artists Vanya Balogh and Jim Racine, and presented at Oblong Gallery, London in June 2010.

Four Legs Good Two Legs Bad


I will be showing new work at the Four Legs Good Two Legs Bad exhibition to celebrate Chinese new year, which this year is the year of the pig. My piece Baubo is inspired by the Goddess of mirth in Greek mythology. An old woman who was bawdy and sexually liberated, her family were pig farmers so she is sometimes depicted riding on the back of a pig.


Experience the myriad artist responses to the theme of Year of the Pig, 'Four legs good, two legs bad', a quote from George Orwell's prescient 1945 book Animal Farm.

Urban, underground, it is the contemporary art antidote to the flock wall paper & institutionalized art of the national Gallery just 200 yards away. Here, below street level you can encounter anything and probably will.

Chance upon a lone tap dancer, discover installations about
race, gender and migration. Hear Euro Asian electronic music, watch an adult interpretation of fairytale, the Three Little Pigs via Butoh Dance. Witness an invitation to dinner with a twist, visually consider capitalism and ecology, visit a paper theatre, and think about pigs in ancient literature. Walk on Brex-it poetry, question the meaning of wealth and happiness and much more. Energetic, irreverent, thought provoking and fun. We look forward to you joining us underground!.

#CNYLondon is the largest celebration in the world (outside Asia) with Trafalgar Square, Leicester square and China Town hosting over 300, 000 visitors enjoying everything from dragon dances, martial arts, parades to pyrotechnics and Chinese cuisine.

The Ghost Tide



I will be selling hand printed La Pascualita confetti editions in the Ghost shop for the Ghost Tide exhibition. This hand printed confetti is perfect to throw at any wedding! La Pascualita is a famous corpse bride shop mannequin in Mexico. She is rumoured to be the shop owner's daughter preserved after she died from a black widow bite just before her wedding day in 1930



I am also very pleased to have been invited to do a Papel Picado workshop for the closing of the exhibition on Saturday the 3rd Nov from 2- 5pm. The workshop is suitable for all ages and there are other performances and walks to also take part in on this day.  Please take a look at the Ghost Tide invite image above for more info



Thames-Side Studios Gallery, Thames-Side Studios, 
Harrington Way, Warspite Road, Woolwich, 
SE18 5NR

EXHIBITION DATES 20 October – 3 November 
GALLERY OPENING HOURS Thurs-Sun 12pm – 5pm

OPENING PARTY Friday 19 October 6pm - 8.30pm
Gen Doy performance 7.30pm
The Ghost Tide - coinciding with the festivals of Hallowe'en, All Souls and the Day of the Dead - takes as its starting point the perspective that ghosts exist as an idea, or as part of a belief system, across cultures, across national borders and throughout recorded history. Most languages contain words to describe the ghost, spirit or immaterial part of a deceased person. Often, these words - like the type of ghost they describe - have traversed borders and been assimilated across cultures.

The exhibition, situated next to the Thames Barrier in South-East London, evokes ghosts as a migratory tide, washed up along the shore of the Thames their historical baggage in tow. It also explores the presence of artists in this part of London, as a migratory tide of creative flotsam and jetsam which ebbs and flows as the city gentrifies and develops.
Featured works include sculpture, installation, film, sound, performance and wall based works. The exhibition will include installations and outdoor interventions, as well as public events.
The Ghost Tide features works by over 30 UK and international artists.
Artists featured: Andrea G Artz, Chris Boyd, Davies, Monaghan & Klein, Gen Doy, Sarah Doyle, Graham Dunning, Diane Eagles, Andrew Ekins, Charlie Fox, Katie Goodwin, Kio Griffith, Miyuki Kasahara, Calum F Kerr, Rob La Frenais, David Leapman, Liane Lang, Toby MacLennan, Laura Marker, Joanna McCormick, Josie McCoy, Jane Millar, Output Arts, Miroslav Pomichal, Brothers Quay, Anne Robinson, Edwin Rostron, Matt Rowe, Sarah Sparkes, Charlotte Squire, Sara Trillo, Yun Ting Tsai, Kate Walters, Patrick White, Heidi Wigmore, Neale Willis, Mary Yacoob, Neda Zarfsaz.

Sarah Sparkes is an artist and curator. She leads the visual arts and creative research project GHost (initiated in 2008), curating an on-going programme of exhibitions, performances and inter-disciplinary seminars interrogating the idea of the ghost.

Mind Your Head - Mass Sologamy


I have a small piece in the auction at Mind Your Head, my piece for the auction is called La Pascualita. It’s tiny hand printed confetti of the famous corpse bride shop mannequin in Mexico. Which is rumoured to be a bridal shop owner’s daughter preserved after she died from a black widow spider bite just before her wedding in 1930

Mind Your Head! is back in the basement at the Golden Anchor in on Saturday 7th July with Mass Sologamy! 
The Golden Anchor, 16 Evelina Road, Nunhead, London SE15 2DX

Also bid in the Something, Old, New, Borrowed and Blue Auction with artworks by Sarah Doyle, Julia Maddison, Joanna McCormick, Frog Morris, Liam Scully, Jaqueline Utley, Julie Pickard, Sarah Sparkes and many of the performers above! Auctioneer extraordinaire Spruce Monkscyth!

Mass Sologamy is for those who feel Self-Marriage just might be crazy enough to work. Marry yourself kits are available to support you. Self-Marriage is a commitment to valuing and prioritising yourself within a culture that has neglected it, lied to it, insulted it, left it behind even commercialised and dehumanised it. What does Sologamy mean to you? Do you have to love yourself to marry yourself? Can you legally get married to yourself? or if you are not quite ready for the full commitment…Can you legally marry your dog?
