They’ve created some outside inside at the gallery daddy helps in…
As life gets xmassy busy it’s good to have some space..
Now our natural inclination @thedogwhatblogs in to be glib, sarcy and ironic to a point where its not funny.
Obviously we always bang on about galleries.
But this is a bit different…
a bit more…
In the wondrous @thestonespace leytonstone there are artists in residence working away and u can watch.
Sometimes the boy wonder is there too.
Don't watch him.
All he does is blog.
And then you toddle up the road to watch a panto.
Hear 'I wish it could be xmas everyday' for two more weeks…
And laugh your head off.
East, east, east london as they say at leyton orient…
Oo u could go there too and make a whole damn day of it…
The Stone Space: There’s a sim card. In perspex. It contains text and photos from an old relationship.
5 Stars. Its on a plinth.
Maureen Paley: There’s pinboards. In Bethnal Green. They contain text about architecture.
3 Stars. Its tucked away.
The British Museum: There’s old shit. In cabinets. They contain bones, pots and in a special free exhibition stuff relating to drinking.
3 Stars. Mainly pots.
A lot of pots.
I think iv said b4.
Another day when my owner was being all kinds of weird and sick so I took myself of to some little corners of the capital on my own…
With oyster in paw (interesting phrase) I first traipsed to glamourous Leytonstone on advice from his lordship @albiestar (“I’m always in sodding Leytonstone”).
Theres a little gallery there. Its called The Stone Space and its on the ground floor of the library building.
Now this little staffy* likes things that are short and cool and free… their current exhibition features mixed media about humogenise… I can’t spell that word… I’m a dog.
About things looking the same.
So if you ever find yourself in Leytonstone with 5 minutes to spare… get back on the train… no seriously theres an arts scene… there is! I shall provide links at the bottom.
All of east london is festooned with art.
Recently your humble narrator has been subscribing to a philosophy called ‘The Artists Way’ (linkage below) by Julia which is a good excuse for pouncing around all these galleries.
Its all about releasing the inner artist (now my problem is sometimes keeping it in) and treating yourself to cultural experiences… I said “Im already there Julia… have you seen my blog?”
So after the meet up for this in the cafe at St Martins in the Crypt I fell upon an exhibition of collage stuff which was all very interesting. Bits of which are illegally spliced on my instagram. Im a devil.
Oo this is getting long… on the tube I’m bored.
Anyway it was by Leslie Bennett whose “recent work involves cutting circles out of graph paper…”
Modern art eh?
*’little stuffy’ is spell checked first as ‘little stuffy’ then ‘little stiffy’
