Been a while since the Medway open studios 2015 exhibition ‘It is what it is’
Thank you to everyone who came and guessed the film quote from many of my favourite 80’s and 90’s movies. It was great to see different interpretations of my photos.
Bigger thanks go out to all the wonderful people who took away with them lollies (for all correct guesses) and Nikki Price photography prints!
My favourite photo’s have to be these:
‘If I’m not me, then who the hell am I’ -Arnie in Total Recall
Big thanks to my good friend Riven for the make up!
Although there was also room for something a bit silly:
‘You should see the toast I couldn’t even get it through the door’ – John Candy as Uncle Buck
Again, we see her frustration with the system. The fetishism of everyday living is symbolised by another reoccurring theme, that is breakfast, which serves as a duel reminder of new beginnings and our constant struggle with power and authority. She has given up hope and the crisp bread is discarded before it can fulfil its potential.
I’ve already got my thinking cap on for the 2016 theme………hope to catch you there.
Its nearly upon us Medway Open Studios 2015, anyone see my article in WOW! (page 19!)
I’ve had a bit of creative block for this MOSAF, don’t get me wrong I’m busy busy and loving it, but have a lacked a bit of oomph for my own work. That’s when dear Mr Nikki Price Photography came to the rescue with his quotes from 80’s and 90’s movies.
This open studios has been perhaps the least prepared I’d have liked to have been, but hey some of my best work has been in the moment! This exhibition is also slightly different in that there is a mixture of both portrait, self portraits, still life and landscape, so hopefully something for everyone!
Hope you will all pop along and see me (Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th July 11-3 further details here) and see if you can match up the quotes with the photos (possible prizes available -lollies!). I’ll also be displaying some photos from the last year which I think you’ll enjoy.
Till then x
