Over Exposure

It’s easy to fall prey to over-exposure living in Shoreditch where it is literally an occupational hazard. Recently I have preferred the company of my sculptures and my family rather than the company of my camera and as a result I haven’t cycled, driven or walked through Shoreditch for around 2 months but this week I ventured out to meet friends and in the process passed through Brutal, Moniker Art Fair 13 and Graffik Gallery.

DSCN4853-003Brutal really wasn’t that brutal but it was incredibly dark so I amused myself by taking photographs of the differing light offered up by the deserted building which hosted the exhibition from the Lazarides Gallery.

And at the Lookforart booth at Moniker Art Fair  I grabbed a random child to insert into The London Police and Zeus installation… just because I could. This years Moniker Art fair, unlike the previous years, was like an overcrowded cattle market heaving with people who were literally sweating like pigs in a trough.  Too much to see, more than enough to put me off,  I left before I started squealing.

Further West Graffik Gallery played park keeper to Pipsqueak was here! The gallery was closed but I crept in and ventured into the wooded area to peek through the holes bored into the timber …

In the end I had to remind myself that the thing with over exposure is that it isn’t balanced so naturally less is more and with that realisation lit up like a light bulb suspended above my head I skipped back East dodging the en masse advertising murals and paste-ups of Shoreditch, past the art fair flyers littering the streets and made my way back to home where I swiftly closed the door and pulled the blinds.
