A Life I've Lost

In a weeks time not only will I be a whole year older, a whole year wiser and fast approaching my next milestone birthday; but I will be celebrating the opening of my exhibition "A Life I've Lost". I'll be exhibiting illustrations, photography,film and music at kilau coffeeshop and art gallery on little belmont street aberdeen.

It has been a year since I got the nod from the curator to exhibit my work. And it will be my first solo exhibition since my Masters show in 2005. But what a year it has been for me creatively. I've managed to release an album with Katerwaul and successfully design the artwork and packaging. With promising reviews in The Scotsman and online, a successful support slot with codes in the clouds in Aberdeen and Glasgow, I've considered it a great triumph. Whilst all this was going on I was writing and preparing to make a new short film. On the eve of the album launch I was busy doing screen test and casting the film. The film is now well and truly underway with the editing already started.

I don't want to give away too much but by trauling through the this blog you will undoubtably come across work that will feature in the exhibit, but I have a few surprises in store also. So if you're reading this right now I here by invite you to the opening night. Sunday 31st January, Kilau Coffeeshop & Art Gallery 9a Little Belmont Street Aberdeen 8pm. If you can't make it the show will be up for eight weeks from the 31st January till the 28th March 2010. Most work will be for sale as well as the deluxe & standard editions of Katerwaul's "Here There Is No Why".

I hope to see you all then. In the meantime why not enjoy a sneak preview of my new film, "An Artificial Light" out later this year, by viewing the trailer below.
