Poor mans love of God

A couple of years ago I got bored and made a blingtato. This was right about the time when Damian Hirst made “For the Love of God” and kids were sticking swarovski crystals on theis phones . Instead of a scull all i could afford was a potato. From Tesco. And some CZs that Luke had lying around… no Diamonds are wasted on potatoes in our house.

The blingtato has been lying around our flat for several years now, and this is what it looks like now. Hard as rock but still shiny!

I saw Hirst’s scull at the Tate last year, it was very shiny. I prefer my own version.

“Poor Man’s Love of Good” or “The Blingtato”

Serious about Facebook

Good news everyone! You can now find me (my art at least) on FACEBOOK! YEY!

I first created a Facebook ‘page’ when they first introduced the “pages” option back in my uni days, but took it down shortly after as i thought it would make me seme like a total douche. But now i have created a new one. I want to share my work people, and Facebook will let me do that. So it really is ‘YEY!’

At uni it seemed pretentious to create an artist page, i mean who did i think i was? Damian Hirt? Some people thought i had done it as a joke. But not thins time. Im serious about my work – so im serious about Facebook.

In other news: Im thinking about water-colours. Seriously.

Now like me on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/InaDortheaThuresson

Thanks.

Metric Summer Shop Update

 

 

 

The Metric Collective summer shop is up and running on Columbia Rd, but i have not written about it recently, or about anything at all for that matter. Been very busy, and a little bit lazy. First with the Olympics and now flat hunting.

So the shop is up and running, and will be there until Sunday the 2nd of September, so only one last weekend to see it!

Here are some photos of my work there, before the setup was finished!

All rejoice, there is art in me yet!

Thats right! Ive been making some new stuff, or I am working on some new stuff.

Never really like showing unfinished work off, but it might help.

First I wanted to work on some darker prints, so i tried using a black background. I really LOVE the pattern the slugs make in this one, BUTis a bit bare…

The i tried adding MORE stuff to it… That DID NOT WORK, there is just too much stuff:

So THEN i printed out the basic pattern on white and now im adding to it by hand the good old fashioned way, so far ive done 3 and a half, but ill only share the two first ones:

This one im not too keen on so far, but i might change my mind

This one I might try to do a black background on… so far its my favorite:

Im making all this stuff for the METRIC Collective shop we are doing this summer on Columbia Road, im gonna show and also sell some of my prints there!
