Johnny has finally worked out how to get the eyes in his All seeing Tree for GBSG Security into place and swivelling. It has been a struggle for him as he had to work out how to do it all from the outside of the tree as he can’t get into it like he did with the maquette. Just a few more days work and it will be ready for the great outdoors.
This weekend only (09 – 10 December 2017) Johnny’s sculpture Storm in a Teacup is part of Nehctik, an exhibition at Strange Cargo Gallery, Folkestone, Photo Ellie Turner
‘Nehctik’ an exhibition curated by UCA students. Based on the concept of ‘Kitchen Heterotopia’. Following in the footsteps of Martha Rosler’s ground-breaking Semiotics of the Kitchen. Nehctik turns the tables on the concept of the ‘heart of the home’ into a dishevelled post-party kitchen. Showing smorgasbord of artworks from contributing artists Alastair Peat, Johnny White, Eleanor Arnold, Beatrice Lee Knowles, Isaac Carnell-Mckean and performance written by Amelia Beavis Harrison.
In 2018 Johnny will be exhibiting at Farleys House and Gallery in Sussex, the home of British Surrealism. There will be an indoor exhibition entitled Machinations in the gallery from Sunday 1st of April until Sunday 13th of May with a further 3 large pieces being sited outdoors for the entire summer season. Johnny is very excited to be exhibiting alongside the likes of Picasso and Max Ernst!
In September we took our family street show, The Amazing Dog Bike to the Bathing Beauties Festival in Mablethorpe. There are images of us there on our friend’s blog http://centregifts.wordpress.com/
It was a great day and we cycled our vehicles between Sutton on Sea and Mablethorpe doing our interactive dog show in both locations.
