‘Even though life isn’t black and white
it often looks better that way.’
Barry Gifford

Behind every starry silver screen performance there is a real person who has been sucked into the machinery, restyled and re-presented in a recreated environment as the hero or villain of our dreams. Since the early 20th century Hollywood has transformed these mere mortals into gods, stripping them of their skeleton-laden identities and grinding them out as perfect, plastic covered, star shaped deities. This machine of dreams is of course a charade, and the cinema is a place where nothing is as it seems, a place where the real is always mingled with the imagined.
The Dream Machine is a group show of eleven artists who inspired by the recent renaissance of black and white at the cinema, mine the archives to juxtapose early film magic, glamorous imagery, PR driven myths and dreamlike stage sets with the downbeat behind-the-scenes construction and all-too-frequent real life tragedy that is the reality of Hollywood’s dream machine.

As Joan Crawford said ‘You manufacture toys, you can’t manufacture stars.’

Kirsty Buchanan shows a series of cinema inspired etchings.
Sarah Cleaver shows a series of photographs inspired by black and white cinema.
Sarah Doyle’s animation reactivates the onscreen moment where John Gilbert first sets eyes on Greta Garbo and captivated by her beauty instantly falls in love with her.
Paul Kindersley’s performance We Make Cinema, will be inspired by the stars of silent cinema.
Cathy Lomax examines the publicity and propaganda that turns mere flesh and blood into ethereal, shimmering meta-humans.
Alex Michon’s paintings draw on the sadness, melancholy and fear that she associates with her experience of watching early cinema on TV as a child.
Common Objects and Travis Riley’s work is inspired by the concise poetry of inter-titles
Alli Sharma bypasses the angry young men of the 1950s to spotlight the ‘kitchen sink’ women in her series of paintings.
Corinna Spencer - presents a new series of paintings - Hollywoodland that feature early Hollywood stars Olive Thomas and Virginia Rappe both of whom met tragic ends.
Charlotte Squire’s sculptures take their inspiration from film lighting.
Mimei Thompson – Inspired by the dark mise en scene of Charles Laughton’s Night of the Hunter, Thompson’s printed paintings capture the high contrast and constructed atmosphere of this timeless masterpiece.

I Love You Because

Elvis and Lisa Marie by Sarah Doyle

I have work in the Elvis exhibition 'I Love You Because' at A-side B-side gallery to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Elvis Presley going into Sun Studios to make his first ever recording. The show is curated by Chloe Mortimer and Harry Pye

Here is my quote about Elvis from the show:
I was talking to a woman who told me that her mum loved Elvis so much that as a teenager she scratched his name into her forearm with a compass. I wouldn't say my love of Elvis is anything close to that extreme, however I do appreciate a beautiful man when I see one and Elvis certainly was very beautiful in his youth.
I would say that my favourite Elvis song would have to be "In the Ghetto" as I do love a good melodrama.
I have painted Elvis with Priscilla as they are such a beautiful couple and Priscilla's makeup with her winged eyeliner was always amazing. I have also painted him with baby Lisa Marie as I hadn't seen this photo of him with his baby before and thought it was really lovely.

The exhibition opens on July 18th and there is a really fab line up of artists taking part. Here is Harry's blog about the show and the artists on the Rebel Mag

Private View
July 18th 
The first 500 visitors to the gallery will receive a free copy of "The Rebel magazine's Elvis Special" sponsored by Immprint.

A-Side B-Side Gallery
5 - 9 Amhurt Terrace
London, E8 2BT

Gallery opening hours:
Thurs - Sun 12 - 6pm

On Sunday 5th of August Harry Pye will be launching his A to Z of Elvis published by Not So Noble Books

Chutney Preserves 7

This Sunday 23 June I will be on Camberwell Green for the finale of Camberwell Arts Festival 2013 with Chutney Preserves 7 curated by Sarah Sparkes.
The theme of The Chutney Preserves this year is the number 7, as it had been running for 7 years now. So all the artists involved will be making artwork / sideshows / puppets around the theme of 7.

7 for a tale never to be told

One for sorrow

Two for joy

Three for a girl

Four for a boy

Five for silver

Six for gold

Seven for a secret never to be told

I used to love seeing magpies before I found out about this nursery rhyme. Now I have to salute every time a see a magpie on its own to ward off the sorrow.

I will be working with Charlotte Squire in the Uncanny Kitchen. Last year I presented the feral parrot and this year I will be working with another bird by embodying the spirit of the much maligned Magpie. As the BBC webpage on birds puts it Magpies are so despised in the UK  that they "would probably have an Asbo slapped on them if they were teenagers."
However they are the most intelligent of birds and only seem to have this bad reputation in the UK, as in the rest of the world the magpie is often a symbol of good fortune.

I will be baking empty medieval style pie crusts (or coffins as they were known). As in the nursery rhyme 'Sing a Song of Sixpence' when the pie was filled with live blackbirds. My "Mag Pies" won't be filled with birds but with secrets of magpies.
