2 new Easter Island bath tub heads have now joined the 2 from last year to populate the island at this years Deer Shed Festival. They all have flashing eyes and broom head monobrows.
Johnny is making the marble race for the science tent this year, and a further head will be incorporated in that with the marble run tubes passing through it in the form of some kind of mad scientist sci-fi laboratory.
Johnny’s all seeing 3 eyed tree for GBSG Security is complete and soon to be permanently installed in Donington Lincolnshire. In this photo the cameras aren’t in the eyes, a short video of the eyes moving will follow shortly.
Johnny’s exhibition, Machinations, is now open at Farleys Farm, Muddles Green Sussex (the home of British Surrealism). The indoor exhibition is open until May 13th and the outdoor pieces will be there until the autumn.
Here is a snap of Having a Whale of a Time in the grounds, a video of the brand new whale actions will follow shortly on Johnny’s You Tube channel. The shoal of fish now wiggle actuated by the handle of our old coffee plunger and the spout and eyes are now powered by a hand cranked generator.
Amanda and Johnny have been asked to exhibit, select and organise the curated exhibition at Wirksworth Festival in 2018 and are currently lining up artists to exhibit alongside themselves at the Parish Rooms, Church and around town. They plan to put together the most accessible and engaging show the town has seen for a while, so watch this space!
