So everyone and their dog decided that March was the month to organise stuff. The beginning of the month saw the preparation for a wedding, for which I’ve had the pleasure of creating some amazing Vegas style decorations! More to come on this after the big day (SATURDAY!!!) as I don’t dare risk my life by giving too much away. Brides can be very very scary. Isn’t that right Rachel?
After that I was working on a collaboration with the art duo, Mr Four Fingers, for their first solo exhibition WHAT LIES BENEATH. The show is currently running for 1 month at Haggerston Espresso Rooms in Trendy Bastard central, Dalston. It’s a mixture of art, graphic prints and fashion, also seeing a collaboration with the Bag and shoe designer Elizabeth Dunn.
In Her Glory’s collaboration was a free standing wax and bone crucifix, ‘Stolen Prayers’. Using recycled prayer candles and bones that we extracted from owl pellets (vomit in other words, major stinkdom), we illuminated the cross from within, thus creating abstract silhouettes of the bones that were encapsulated in the wax.
The boys also asked me to make one of my floral wall pieces for the show. I’ve recently started to create illuminated floral pieces so it was a great chance to showcase the new designs. so I put their favourite 4 letter word in lights…BOOM.
The show runs until the 3rd of May for anyone who missed the big opening and is yet to make it down. So get in uniform, dust off your creepers & tie dye t-shirts and head down for a coffee and peruse the art! It’s quite good.
