Here’s the new poster i’ve done for OPROJECTS, the new show opens next tuesday.

Rachel Feery & Lisa Stewart


opens tuesday 19th august 6pm and runs until 16th september.


Rachel Feery and Lisa Stewart present: ‘Echoes of Gold’ – a video-installation that takes the viewer to uninhabited lands of mysterious origins. The artists invite you to climb aboard a fabricated boat to be taken out of the ordinary and into the imaginary. Be taken on a journey through constructed environments and discover the wonderment of uninhibited and magical lands.

This enviro-vision reunites one with ‘nature’ and simulates relief from the everyday.

The boat departs from O Projects on Tuesday 19th and 26th August from 7-8pm (each trip running for approximately 10 minutes), however can also be viewed during usual gallery hours.


its the 2nd last show in the current OPROJECTS space, above the old bar, so come down, have a drink and check out some art!

new mailing list and rss subscribe thingie

May 8, 2008

i have been fiddling around on the internets and have set up a mailing list and fancy rss feed thing.

now you can actually subscribe to my blog (that’s if anyone actually ever reads it) via the rss feed or by email mailing list.

the links for these are on the right hand column thing. so either do the rss thing (still not quite sure what that is) or click the email link and type in your email.

and don’t worry i’m not going to sell your email addy to spammers, you’ll only get an mail when there’s an update on the site.

a few illustrations using two random bits of text as starting points and juxtaposing elements.

one excerpt was used as a point of reference for the imagery and the other used as accompanying text.

i think they work well and create interesting relationships. The two random elements form their own strange narrative quite removed from their original context.
