"SQUARE-ONE": EXHIBITION 3rd AUGUST!
on thursday the 3rd of august 2006 (put that in yer diary!!!) a group photography exhibition will be opening in the monstertruck studios on francis street, dublin 8. the show is called "SQUARE-ONE" (not a david kitt album title rip-off; the first thing louise siad to me when i told her!) but because it is a series of work by people with a love/hate relationship with skateboarding.
the artists invloved, all from every concievable background imaginable find inspiration in the commonplace everyday surprises and ups and downs that life throws at us but they all also seem to find endless artistic inspiration from their experiences as skateboarders. for me personally, no matter how much i try to pursue photographic work away from skateboarding, some magnetic force always seems to direct my eye back to my initial interest in shooting skating, both on and off the board. back to square one i suppose.... (so there you have it, in a clever roundabout way, thats what the show is essentially about)
so far the line up consists of 21 artists from all four corners of the globe and the work ive recieved already is looking amazing so im hyped! this show is gonna be the first of its kind in ireland and has quite a few big european/u.s names involved so keep in touch as proper press release/invites/news on the free drink front will be posted up here over the next week or so.
have a nice tuesday....
