Slant, The latest exhibition by members of Illustrators Ireland opened last night in the Ormeau Baths Gallery Belfast and runs until 27th September. The theme of the exhibition asked illustrators to reinterpret a work by one of their favourite artists. I chose Ingres - Valpincon Bather and my re-interpretation is pictured above.

CandyKaraoke Opening

Friday, June 20th, 2008

WOW!

What can we say? The work was incredible and the turnout last night was a suitable tribute to it. Thanks so much to everyone who participated in what turned out to be an AMAZING show and opening night. We were thrilled at your response to our call and to the response to the work last night.

I’d also like to thank Richard for asking me to help with this show. You are already a legend! I can’t imagine what life would be like without Richard and Aidan and The Candy Collective! So thanks to you!

To the contributing artists…Take a bow everyone, YOU ARE ALL HEROES!

CANDY loves you all!!!

CandyKaraoke Show

As curator of this show it might go some way to explaining why I’ve not been updating the blog too often lately but I have to say it’s been a brilliant experience. Keeping a project of this size (70 contributing artists) moving along has been more of a pleasure than a pain. Here is the blurb and some info…

In a time where digital music sales have outstripped physical formats like cd or vinyl, thereby shifting the focus from browsing cover art in your local record shop to high budget videos and clever marketing, CandyCollective wanted to celebrate the ever declining art of sleeve art.

‘CandyKaraoke’ sees us collaborate for the first, of hopefully many, times with Monster Truck Gallery on Francis Street and RHA to invite over 70 of Ireland’s leading designers, artists, photographers, illustrators, musicians and original creative minds to reimagine their favourite album covers. All artworks produced will be original 1-off 12” square works which will be sold for only 300 euro each. (more…)

Really great show on in the George Bernard Shaw inDublin, run by Derek and John from Bodytonic. 24 artists were given a 2×2 white board with a drawing by Chris Judge (see img on left) then we could draw/paint/stick/spray over it anyway we wanted (see img on the right). all the pieces were then brought together on the opening night and assembled for the first time.

For more info you can read a report by Mario Sughi on SCAMP here and look at some more pictures here.
