I'm pleased to announce I have some work in this group show in London. 6 months ago, 28 artists were asked to produce new work interpreting the concept of 'cusp' – to be on the brink, on the threshold or border between two states or actions.
The resulting art works will be shown over 2 days only at 5th Base Gallery, 23 Heneage Street, London E1 5LJ before being added to the I Heart Art online archive – a record of the work these and other artists have done as part of the I Heart Art Collective since 1999.
The CUSP exhibition in March will feature painting, sculpture, photography, performance, installation, textiles, ceramics, film and sound pieces.
Wendy Kirwood, Stephen Maskell, Lee Hazeldine, Vikki Hill, Paul Whyte, Danielle Penhaligan, Cat James, Vikki Maltby, Andrew Smith, Ellen Lever, Mark Freemantle, Richard Martin, Hannah Baker, Mark Shaw, Frances Grant, Aron Spall, Jenny Walden, Brian Lunn, Louisa Dunn, Denise Leworthy, Anja Lubach, Vissey Safavi, Helen Lynwen Woods, Anita Wernstrom-Pitcher, Helen Smith, Jennie Fagerstrom, Chris Giorgi and Xavier White.
