Richard Hood (from UK) The theme of this collection centres around the idea of things
both hairy and scary. From my folliculary
challenged friends, through to moments of monstrous anxiety. It seems that I
spend a lot of time drawing strange monsters of one sort or another, so the
idea of a Monsters Gallery started to coalesce. The work itself has been
created with simplicity in mind – ink, paper and wood, with the sparing
addition of interactive elements – with the aim of incorporating simple
circuitry to add charm and responsiveness.
Richard Hood is exhibiting in WORKS ON PAPER at The Brick Lane
Gallery – The Annexe from 29th October – 8th November.

The annual group show now in its fourth year, Moleskine Project co-curated by Sydney-based artist Rodrigo Luff and gallery director Ken Harman goes down the street from its regular Spoke Art exhibition space to Harman’s new-ish, larger Hashimoto Contemporary. Over 70 artists from throughout the world participated in Moleskine Project this year. One of this exhibition’s aims is to honor the sketchbook as the artist’s essential medium from which many of the artists’ works begin. Says co-curator Rod Luff: “The ubiquitous sketchbook is a common ground through which a visual dialogue is exchanged from page to page, forming a colorful language of imagery and experimental use of media throughout the exhibition. more>>
