Busy busy busy...

A small section of Panoramia by Leo Fitzmaurice

It's been a while since I last posted as I've spent the last three weeks helping to install the new Leo Fitzmaurice show at The Lowry.

This show is part of the Transformations series based around artists responses to The Lowry's Promenade Gallery. It's a huge space and this show was pretty hardcore to produce. Imagine creating countless reproductions of film cartridge packaging on a giant scale (the walls are about 6 metres high, the gallery as long as a street!), complete with muli-coloured spectrum! The end result though is completely impressive, a show that lives up the the brief of transforming a space into a new landscape.

Leo Fitzmaurice artwork concentrates on advertising, signage, packaging and print reworking these themes to reveal other, often suprising, aspects from materials we often take for granted. The exhibition, Panoramia runs from now until the 5th September, with the private view taking place on the 13th May.

I will resume normal posts this week as I recover from muscle ache.

Other news:

The Chantilly Belles have recently been commissioned by The Whitworth Art Gallery to produce a new routine for the launch of the new adult learning programme!

Myself and Rene la Rouge are so excited to be involved in this event. We are creating
a brand new routine as a response to the Whitworth collection, in this case a fab wallpaper featuring vintage style pin ups! The launch night will be on the 11th June and I will fill you in on things as we put the routine together and rear up for a very busy month!
