Curious Cabinets

Curious Cabinets opens its doors on Friday 21st Oct. The exhibitions has work by 15 artists all based on the idea of cabinets of curiosity.
Thanks to a successful Crowdfunding campaign, and donations from Dulux, we have been able to transform the space.

The exhibition contains some beautiful cabinets, as well as an amazing mannequin by Lizzie Biscuits, haunting performance by Pink and grAy, and much more.

My own work in the exhibition includes a painting called Pearl which I have been working on on-and-off for years, and which is now, finally, finished. It is based on a Medieval poem of the same name, in which the author describes his young daughter who died and is now buried in the garden. He goes on to describe the flowers that grow on her grave, which is the idea behind the painting.

I also have a cabinet in the exhibition which is a collaboration with Michael Borkowsky. Entitled The Willing Sitter, it contains the items used by Nostradamus for a séance, which makes for an interesting and eclectic range of objects.
