I’ve been working with several other artists on a ‘zine’ which will be launched on 31 May 2012 at the Innovation Centre Cafe at Exeter University. Artwork will be displayed, ginger beer on offer and a zine making workshop. The zine will be available to buy at the launch and on ebay (details below). I’ll also be selling my artwork as posters and postcards at the launch and afterwards online (details will be posted here).
The zine (or magazine) is called ‘The Quixotic Press’, being an approximate anagram of ‘Exquisite Corpse’, agame invented by the Surrealist artists and similar to the old parlour game ‘Consequences’. In the game, a concealed word or image is folded over then passed to the next player for their contribution. The end result being a final composite image which is, if nothing else, wonderfully unexpected. You will see work by Chloe Uden (Creator of the zine & contributing artist) and other artists – Olivia Croce, Pat Cullum, Rory Cunningham, Sadie Moisan, George Murphy and Naomi Ziewe Palmer.
The Innovation Centre Cafe, Exeter University on Thurs 31 May 2012, 4.30-7.30pm
