Grove Park Carnival - Chutney Preserves River Dance


On Saturday12th August I am pleased to be taking part in Grove Park Carnival as part of Chutney Preserves River Dance alongside the artists Sarah Sparkes, Miyuki Kasahara and Rebecca Fiener.

The Chutney Preserves are a combination of village fete and art exhibition, they create one day public artworks which visitors can interact with and immerse themselves in. Inspired by the River Quaggy, the Chutney Preserves will be emerging from the waters with puppets masks and costumes.

My work for the Chutney Preserves inspired by the River Quaggy will be about the Kingfisher. The fantastic Quaggy Waterways Action Group had the river transformed from a concrete canal to the natural wetland it is today.  Operation Kingfisher is the name that the group gave to the grand design for the whole river. It was named this for the remaining Kingfishers that clung to the River Quaggy.
I will invite you to dress as a Kingfisher and fish for facts about the said bird near the banks of the Quaggy River.

Do come and join me and the other daughters of Chutney on Saturday from 12-5pm at Chinbrook Meadows, 
Amblecote Road, 
London, SE12

Lots of other good stuff happening on the day too so don't miss performances by Frog Morris, song, dance and a flea circus, Carnival Queen Mzz Kimberly, Calum F Kerr's new work 'Amulet Reunited (after E. Nesbit), Joanna Mcormick as the Chalkhill Butterfly and circus star Leah Kirkby will be there to teach a circus skills workshop

#51%RememberHer

I am very pleased to be showing in the #51%RememberHer which launches on International Women's Day


"Women are half of our history, half of our present and half of our future"

I will be showing new and old work themed around the women of music hall. Including my costume from my performance as Marie Lloyd and new work featuring the performer Florrie Forde.
The Memorial Community Church is dedicated to the local men who were killed in WW1. During this era music hall songs were used to boost moral and recruit troops. One of the most famous of these wartime songs being "Pack up Your troubles in your old kit bag", which was performed by Florrie Forde. The work in part explores the optimism and joy in the lyrics of the song versus the reality of lives lost.

What's the use of worrying? It never was worth while, So Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag, And smile, smile, smile.”

Launch: March 8th 6 - 9pm (International Women's Day)
Opening times: 1 - 6pm Tues, Sat & Sun
Exhibition continues until April 8th

Curated by Rebecca Feiner


Launching on International Womenʼs Day Wednesday March 8th #51%RememberHer references London's 51 per cent female population and is the inaugural exhibition of over 100 women artists featuring sculpture, painting, animation, installation, photography, drawing, performance, graffiti, spoken word, history walks, talks and special events throughout the month. 

#51% RememberHer provides a significant survey of the creative female talent who live, work, study or have a family connection to the creative melting pot of East London. 

Artists will animate the East Tower of the Byzantine style, Grade II listed church, spilling over into the South Hall and Upper Balcony. 

Curator Rebecca Feiner said "Women are half of our history, half of our present, and half of, all our futures. Culturally with Maria Balshaw taking over at London's Tate Modern, and politically women physically making their presence felt from Japan, to Poland, from Saudi Arabia to America and here in the UK, it really felt like the right time to celebrate female creativity and make this exhibition happen.”

Exhibition continues until April 8th at the Tower Gallery (East Tower), Memorial Community Church, 395 Barking Road, London E13.

#51%RememberHer is an off-site project by Elements Gallery London, the capital's first dedicated exhibition space for outdoor art.

Uncanny World Of Interiors


I am part of the Uncanny World Of Interiors show at 6 Caroline Place, part of Plymouth Art Weekender

The temporary domestic space at Caroline Place showcases the work of 6 designers and artists working with everyday materials, transforming the mundane into objects of desire. 
The unheimlich of Freud’s analysis wherein things pertaining to homeliness and domesticity are somewhat wrong footed by one thing or another, subjective to be sure, make us question what exactly ‘home’ is. A place? A feeling? A tribe we belong to? This is a subject that has substantial contemporary currency as migration and dislocation move cultures from places of conflict or through economic displacement. Small items may be carried from one place to another, they are left to be found later and integrated into the scheme of things.

Faraway Tree - Animating Lordship Lane

A video posted by Sarah Doyle (@sarah_doyle) on

The Angry Pixie, Silky, The Saucepan Man, Dame Washalot and Moonface on the Faraway Tree I made for Animating Lordship Lane at Mrs Robinson with Fantasy High Street
Lordship Lane is where the author Enid Blyton was born in 1897. Her tales about The Magic Faraway Tree were some of my favourite books when growing up. It was so much fun to make my own take on the characters from these stories. 
All of the windows in the tree have drawings of the interiors of Enid Blyton's home where she wrote her children's stories 🌳


The shop window art trail has six art installations along Lordship Lane and runs from 30th Aug - 11th Sept 2016


There are art workshops and performances for the Family Fun Weekend on Sat 3rd - Sun 4th Sept. 
I will be running a Paper Automata workshop for children at Mrs Robinson, 128 - 130 Lordship Lane from 2 - 5pm on Sunday

Milton's Cottage Garden

I am showing new work in an outdoor exhibition at Milton's Cottage - the only surviving residence of the poet and parliamentarian, John Milton, and the place where he completed Paradise Lost.

The garden has been planted with flowers, trees and herbs that are referenced in his poetry and artists have been asked to create small-scale, site specific artworks that respond to his writings about gardens (including the Garden of Eden) as well as the garden itself.


I am showing mirrors in the flowerbeds of the gardens which are etched with Milton's handwriting. Each mirror has a different quote of Milton's about flowers.

Following In Father's Footsteps, sung by Miss Vesta Tilley

Following in Father's Footsteps from Sarah Doyle on Vimeo.

In 1899 Vesta Tilley laid the foundation stone for the Camberwell Palace Of Varieties, which stood at 23-31 Denmark Hill. At this time Camberwell boasted around half a dozen theatres or cinemas. The day she laid the foundation stone she is reported to have said that she would be “delighted to sing the first song in the new Palace of Varieties”*

This film was created as part of Camberwell Arts Festival 2016 “Metamorphosis” project and features a song by the Music Hall star Vesta Tilley. She was one of the foremost musichall acts of her day and started her male impersonation act at the age of only 5 years old. Vesta Tilley personifies metamorphosis, an enduring icon, her influence can still be felt today.

*Quote from the theatrical paper the Era, 8th July, 1899
This film has been supported by the Camberwell Arts Festival (11th – 19th June 2016)

The Names


I will be showing my name piece on etched mirror with Transition Gallery for 'The Names' show.
My work from the show also features in the Self edition of Transition Gallery's Garageland Magazine

Preview: Friday 15 January 6-9pm

The Names features a number of small works; each one is about the name / signature of the artist who made it. From Duchamp’s subversive R.Mutt to Josh Smith’s shameless painted autographs, artists have cavorted with the significance of the signature. As a rule, in the early 20th century, the signature was a vital addition to the front of an artwork, embedding the artist’s identity into the work with showy authentication. In contemporary art, however, the signature is generally discretely placed on the back of an artwork and a prominent signature has become the signifier of very bad, amateur taste.
Denying the name on the front of the work is an art world game. The value of an artwork depends upon its maker – so excluding the name means only those in the know, know for sure the veracity of the work.
In contemporary culture ‘bad taste’ can quite legitimately be resurrected and become a sign of the most adventurous tastemakers. Thus, there are now artists who knowingly embrace the potential of the signature by signing their work prominently and defiantly on the front.
The Names first appeared at Sluice Art Fair in October 2015. It will be reimagined at Transition Gallery in January 2016 with 18 additional artists.

Highlights of the show include Liam Scully's Beyonce tribute, Barry Thompson's drawings of Kurt Cobain, Paul Hamilton's response to The Beatles White album, a painting of Yoko Ono by Rowland Smith, a Kate Bush fanzine put together by Sarah Doyle, a gigantic Florence and The Machine painting by Julie Bennett, Sandra Turnbull's mixed media tribute to Ian Dury & The Blockheads, Dominic From Luton's work inspired by Paul Young, Pop Star obituary paintings by Hugh Mendes, and a Michael Jackson painting by Geraldine Swayne."

Harry says: "I'm really looking forward to this show. I've been collaborating with Gordon Beswick and Mikey Georgeson on several new paintings of David Bowie, which will be hung together in our "David Bowie Corner".  Gordon and I have also made a new painting of Brian Jones that was inspired by a song on Micko Westmoreland's new L.P "Your's ETC Abc" We're delighted that the p.v. of this show is also the launch party for Micko's excellent album. Hope you can make it on Thursday the 10th as I'm sure a splendid time will be had by all."

ARTY 35: BRITISH CULTURE
summer 2015

British culture is not all about heritage, despite what the tourists may think. But our rich history does infuse many of the things that we live with in day-to-day contemporary Britain and there are historical mementoes all around us. This could be read as an inherent conservatism – a longing to keep things as they ever were. But I think this is to misread the situation. We are a country that has made many mistakes but the physical historic reminders and our public ease in being critical about how things are, mean that we should be optimistic. I genuinely think we are a more tolerant and reasonable nation then practically any other.


The artist / contributors to Arty British Culture are... Larry Achiampong, David Blandy, Jackie Chettur, Annabel Dover, Sarah Doyle, Luci Eyers, Archie Franks, Susie Hamilton, Cathy Lomax, Alex Michon, Gabrielle de la Puente, Matt Rowe, Alli Sharma, Mimei Thompson and Ben Westley Clarke
They look at... hen nights, the NHS, gothic heart-throbs, pub signs, bird watching, David Bowie, abandoned dogs, Carry on Nurse, drinking, allotments, bar taps, Thomas Hardy, charms, breakfast, Ben Whishaw, accents, discrimination…

"The Sheep are among the animals that people like most. It is gentle and calm. Since ancient times people have learned to use its fleece to make writing brushes and skin to keep warm. As it is white, people describe
delicate and precious white jade to be 'suet jade'. 
Thus it is close to the meaning of good things."

A Historic 3rd Consecutive CHINESE OPEN reclaims the
multi-storey car park on Newport Place in the heart of Soho, Chinatown. You are cordially invited to join us and celebrate the arrival of sheep in our midst. Initiated in 2013 by two London based artists Cedric Christie & Vanya Balogh this years exhibition will feature over 100 international artists who work in various media including performative, video and site specific sound installation.

Lettsom Estate Community Gardening Day

Lucky Dip is an open art competition that takes place out in the open. 20 shortlisted artists have been randomly allocated a public space in Camberwell through a lucky dip process. I was allocated The Lettsom Estate as part of Camberwell Arts Festival 20th Anniversary Lucky Dip

The Lettsom Estate was built in the early 1970s on land formerly owned by John Coakley Lettsom. As part of the Lucky Dip for Camberwell Arts Fesival on Sunday the 15th June I organised a community gardening day on the Estate.

As the estate itself is built on the ground formerly owned by the philanthropist and herbalist John Coakly Lettsom the plan was to tie in Letsom's love of naturalism by making a small garden around the playground in the middle of Letsome estate, next to the estate office.

For the 20th anniversary of Camberwell Arts Festival it was my aim to leave something behind as a reminder of a day enjoyed by the tenants and residents of Lettsom Estate and something that can be enjoyed after the festival has finished too.

The garden was planted on Saturday 15th of June and the Lucky Dip art trail runs until the 22nd June 2014. As my project is a garden it will be there as a permanent reminder of the Gardening Day. If you do visit please do water the plants.

Here is the address of the garden:
