Lots happening here chez Harrison and Little. It’s been an age since I’ve updated so update I shall.
Brag: I’ve finally been invited to show an artwork in an exhibition. Rejected twice this year for RSA and RA (Why do you not love me?) so needed something to pick me up. It’s a good thing I’m a balanced enough individual to know that one shouldn’t place their self worth or creative value on these things. Which of course means I didn’t cry or swear at receiving aforementioned rejections. Ehem.
Thanks be to the fine people of DOK Art Space of the Steel Shed for accepting my textile work of Edinburgh Mortuary for the ‘Locality’ exhibition. I don’t have a photo of the piece but I do have the scribbled page of my artist statement:
I have also recently ventured into the world of the Artobotic. Artobotic?! What is this? Follow this link for all the info you need to fully grasp the greatness of this idea. Basically, it’s a machine that vends small art works for 5 £2 coins. John Byrne has involved himself with this as have many other artists.
And finally, I have become one half of a duo interested in Edinburgh places, spaces, squares and streets. Dead Ringers Shop was created out of, uhm, huh, can’t remember exactly how it all began but we are a humming with the activity of screen printing t-shirts and totes.
Dead Ringers Shop can be found on Twitter @DeadRingersShop and Instagram @deadringersshop and etsy Dead Ringers Shop.
This year I’ve been lucky to have commissions ongoing since January. My current project is an A3 print and textile piece to be the main artwork in a domestic living space. So far so good.
I want to give a shout out to my peeps….no wait. Even that makes me want to vomit. Let’s start again… I’d like to thank my friends for stepping in to help over the past few months. Childcare was not happening for many weeks, yet work was still needing to be done. Thanks to teams Corin, Dylan, Rosie, Bella and MJ for your care, conversation and chocolate biscuits.
