"REJECTED" - An exhibition at A-side B-side Gallery

I'll be showing a piece at the A-side B-side Gallery in London on Thursday May 3rd for a show called 'REJECTED'. A great show exploring art and rejection. (Read the press release below)

I'll be exhibiting alongside Darren MacPherson, Tinsel Edwards and Twinkle Troughton with whom I've been privileged to have shown work with before in Los Angeles, Orange County and at Debut contemporary Gallery, London and at The Fabelist's Imprint Exhibition earlier this year.

The piece I'll be showing is a collaboration with digital artist Jonathan Ramirez that I did last year, one of five pieces we worked on. Jonathan will be having his first major solo show in Texas on the 18th May called 'Mayan Prophecy', where we have collaborated on a further two original pieces of artwork including a collaboration with Swedish artist Larsa Bondén which will be shown at WAAS Gallery.


A-side B-side Gallery presents: Rejected
Private View: Thursday May 3rd 6-9pm
5-9 Amhurst Terrace

Artists frequently get rejections from shows and competitions; rejection is part of what being an artist is all about. 

Often an exhibition will have a curatorial concept and the work just simply doesn’t fit the theme, in competitions the judges are subjective and essentially select what they like.  Current trends in the art world might make the work more or less desirable not forgetting the provenance of the artist themselves...

‘Rejected’ seeks to celebrate rejection, through a united force of artists getting together to valiantly display their previously rebuffed work.  The exhibition aims to dispose the issue of whether each individual piece is indeed lesser than that of its contemporaries.  Following an open call, every single proposal to the Rejected exhibition was accepted.  Alongside their rejected artwork, each artist will openly display a list of previous rejections from galleries, competitions and art schools.
