Most outwardly supported football club (The race to 50)

Most outwardly supported football club (The race to 50)

So I went to the football world cup (or should I say ‘The FIFA Disneyworld Cup™’) in South Africa last year. Whilst I was there, my friend and I noticed something quite glaringly obvious: That the most outwardly supported club football team were not, contrary to popular belief, Manchester United, but in fact Arsenal. By outwardly supporting I mean sporting of their shirt. Of course, we saw more international shirts depending which match we were at. But amongst the hundreds of thousand of supporters we saw at our 3 stadium matches and numerous other matches viewed from fan parks, there was no doubt that Arsenal were, by a long way, the most popular team.

Control Over Nature – Tessa Farmer

Tessa Farmer at The Crypt Gallery, St Pancras Church, London.

To mark the release of the new Amon Tobin album (ISAM), Saatchi Collection artist Tessa Farmer put together the Control Over Nature installation, brought to life by the music of Tobin.

Vicious fairies (just 10mm in height) made from parts of insects, build imagined dwellings from carcases and bones – the most breath taking piece being a mummified cat infested by fairies accompanied by the track Kitty Cat.

As you enter the crypt (lit only by the spot lights angled at the installation) you stumble into a swarm consisting of the husks of dead insects – from the beautiful butterfly (featured on the ISAM album cover) to ferocious hornets and the usually bothersome blue bottles, which seam to glisten in this low lit grotto.

Tessa’s use of natural materials to create a sinister yet beautiful world where fairies rule, works in perfect symmetry with the hauntingly intricate soundscapes Tobin expertly crafts.
Possibly one of the best exhibitions in the most atmospheric venue I’ve ever been to.

Creative cakes!

Creative cakes!

It was only a matter of time before I combined my two loves: food and art and I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before…

Chocolate sponge, blackcherry jam, chocolate buttercream, fondant decorations – all completely and absolutely utterly edible!

Art Gallery in Cheltenham

Atompop kitchen ducksA Cheltenham art gallery website

I’ve recently refurbished the web site for deepspaceworks art gallery and studio space in Charlton Kings, Cheltenham.

The website, as with the art gallery, had been a work in progress for a while, waiting for everything to come together. But now that the gallery itself has played host to its first exhibition (see the website), the site has also been able to flourish. Images from the exhibition as well as more and more happening at deepspaceworks have allowed me to add all the content to the site that was previously missing.

So now the web site is fully up and running and under the care of Su from the gallery, who is happily adding her own latest news and info to the site as and when she needs to.
