We recently paid a visit to Graham’s studio in Hove for a catch up and to take a sneaky peek at his new body of work for our forthcoming show at ink_d; 'All Creatures'.
With our current show ‘Three Dimensions’ well underway in the gallery, displaying a heady mix of ceramics, sculpture and other assembled 3D work, we thought this week we’d entice you for our forthcoming show with a little teaser on ‘All Creatures’, the return of one of our old favourites Graham Carter.
‘All Creatures’ kicks off very soon and will be on for the whole of May. The month is a very exciting time in Brighton with a plethora of artistic and creative events taking place, we are pleased to say that Graham’s show will be ink_d’s contribution to this years Brighton Fringe Festival. If you pick up a copy of the festival magazine check us out on page 87.
Alongside our gallery being transformed with his brand new animal themed work, Graham is also inviting the public to take part in an explorational nature trail around Brighton to help locate the ‘Lost Animals’. This is truly going to be an exhibition with something on offer to suit all ages. As part of the trail there will be a prize draw for a chance to win a veritable bevy of Graham Carter art booty, with original artwork and prints up for grabs. The proceeds from that draw will be donated to a very worthy cause, the UK environmental and bird protection charity RSPB.
‘All Creatures’ will be Graham’s first solo show in the gallery for a number of years, with his past exhibitions always proving to be wonderfully immersive and memorable.
We recently paid a visit to Graham’s studio in Hove for a catch up and to take a sneaky peek at his new body of work. Without ruining the surprise we saw some incredible 3D laser cut characters, which have been designed to represent features of the animal world. This layering up of different components and textures is a technique that runs through Graham’s 2D and 3D artwork. We also saw his A-Z print run, which has a few animals in there you might never have heard of, as well as his exquisite newly printed box sets.
Over the next couple of weeks we’ll be announcing more details on the show, posting up our fascinating artist interview with Graham and generally getting you excited for ‘All Creatures’. In the meantime we’ve got a fantastic selection of three dimensional art work beautifully adorning our gallery, so if you haven’t already be sure to pop in. And remember Graham Carter’s animals are coming in May so make a note in your diary!
