Magpie opens at Galleri CC

I've recently spent some time in Malmö, Sweden installing my show Magpie at Galleri CC. The show is the cumulation of two years of work, and includes new woodblock prints, photos, and stereoscopic photographs in the black box gallery.

The show is open through April 22, but if you can't make the trip, here's some pictures.

The magpie has a reputation as the smartest of the birds, but with a bad habit. They steal especially shiny things, with which to build their nests. Jewellery, bits of string and aluminium foil, whatever catches their eye. I find myself following a similar tact; the work evolving through a process of following my impulses, letting that lead me to something unexpected. Hopefully walking backwards into something meaningful. I’m building these nests out of bits of my past, a corner that I ate breakfast in every day, shadows cast by blinds that glided around the room, combined haphazardly with detritus, studio experiments, parts of past projects, photos borrowed and stolen.
